SEASONAL SPLENDOR
Any time is a nice time to visit Maryland,
whether the landscape is ablaze with bright
fall foliage, dusted with powdery white
snow, sprouting brilliant spring blossoms
or touched by soft summer sunsets.
The state enjoys a generally moderate
climate, with our warmest month, July,
averaging temperatures in the upper 80s
Fahrenheit. Winter’s average temperature
is in the mid 30s, but during our coldest
month, January, the mercury often dips
into the low to mid 20s.
Annual snowfall can range from more
than 100 inches in the Western Maryland
mountains down to about 10 inches on
the lower Eastern Shore. Average annual
precipitation falls into the range of 40 to
45 inches, generally spread evenly
throughout the year.

LODGING OPTIONS
Maryland ofers a wide range of visitor
accommodations. Picture yourself in a
rocking chair on the grand front porch of a
gorgeous Victorian inn, napping poolside
at a luxurious resort, or sipping tea while
curled up on the sofa in an elegant guest
house. Great places to stay are found near
spas, along small-town Main Streets, in the
middle of antiques districts, around hip
urban areas, and by the beach, bay or lake.

What’s New
HERE ARE 12 WAYS TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR NEXT TRIP TO MARYLAND,
INCLUDING SOME OF THE LATEST AND GREATEST THINGS TO SEE AND DO.
1. START WITH A PLAN. Getting
oriented to a new town is easier with a
little help from local experts. So, begin your
journey at a visitor center such as the new
one in Frederick that has state-of-the-art
exhibits and an award-winning film about
the area. Frederick, by the way, recently
ranked eighth on AmericanStyle magazine’s
list of the nation’s top “Small Art Cities.” On
the other side of the state, a barrier island
visitor center is found on Assateague Island,
where a national park has been listed among
the top five “Best Beaches on the East
Coast” (AARP Magazine) and an adjacent
state park is a newly certified Maryland
Green Center, recognized for various
environmental initiatives.
2. FEEL THE POWER! The action
around Baltimore’s harbor area keeps
getting bigger and better. The Power Plant
Live! complex, featuring more than a dozen
dining and entertainment venues, has
added the Baltimore Comedy Factory and
a country-themed bar with professional
bull riding. Plus, Phillips Seafood restaurant
recently moved into a waterfront location
nearby.
Within walking distance of the Power Plant
is the National Pinball Museum, with a pay-
to-play area that lets visitors operate vintage
machines. And across town, the refurbished
Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric
has welcomed such productions as Young
Frankenstein and the Alvin Ailey American
Dance Theatre. Getting around to these
attractions is easy and afordable thanks
to the Charm City Circulator, a free Hybrid
Electric shuttle service that follows three
routes through Baltimore.
Nearer Washington, D.C., the new Fillmore
Silver Spring is a 2,000-capacity live music
venue that, together with the AFI Silver
Theatre and Cultural Center, contributes to
a thriving downtown arts and entertainment
district.
3. HOLD ON TO HISTORY. Now is
a great time to get out and experience
history in Maryland. Once-in-a-lifetime
events and special activities at numerous
destinations are adding to the enjoyment of
three commemorations — the bicentennial
of the War of 1812, the 150th anniversary
of the Civil War and Harriet Tubman’s
Underground Railroad legacy. Learn more
in the special Maryland Milestones section
of this guide.
4. SPEND A DAY AT THE RACES.
Events in Maryland often put us at the
center of the sports universe, whether
it’s May’s traditional Preakness Stakes
horse race at Pimlico, August’s Dew Tour
“action sports” competition in Ocean City
or October’s Under Armour Baltimore
Running Festival.
5. TRY FOR THE JACKPOT. A third
Maryland-based gaming facility is joining
Hollywood Casino in Perryville and the
Casino at Ocean Downs in Berlin. Maryland
Live! Casino at Arundel Mills opens with
4,750 slot and electric table games, a live
music venue and several upscale dining
establishments.
6. SEE SIGHTS IN A SPECIAL WAY.
Segway tours have become a popular
way to get around small towns and
historic areas like Annapolis, Cumberland,
Fort Frederick, Hagerstown and National
Harbor. When walking along Baltimore’s
Inner Harbor area, there is also a free
audio tour that explains the Maryland 9/11
Memorial, a sculpture that incorporates
actual twisted beams from New York’s
World Trade Center.
7. “CACHE” IN ON BAY
EXPLORATIONS. A Capt. John Smith
Geotrail was launched in 2011 with a
ceremony at the Fort Washington-based
Accokeek Foundation at Piscataway Park.
Geocaches have been placed at nearly
40 sites tied to Smith’s exploration of the
Chesapeake Bay region in the 1600s.
Sites and cache coordinates are posted at
Geocaching.com. This is the second geotrail
built in partnership with the Capt. John
Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail: the
first, a Star-Spangled Banner Geotrail, drew
nearly 8,000 visitors to its sites.
8. MAKE A MUSEUM DATE. Though
they have been entertaining visitors for
decades with their unique art collections,
two museums at opposite ends of the state
recently earned national recognition. The
Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in
Hagerstown received a federal grant to help
with the museum’s presentation of more
than 7,000 works from around the world,
and Salisbury University’s Ward Museum
of Wildfowl Art — famous for blending
art, nature and tradition — has joined 13
museums in Maryland that are accredited by
the American Association of Museums.
9. HAVE FUN HORSING AROUND.
Horse and carriage rides show of the
romantic side of Berlin, a historic town near
Ocean City that highlights window-shopping
and a year-long farmers’ market. Or catch
all that’s new at Medieval Times Dinner
& Tournament in Arundel Mills. The show
features a new story line, battle scenes and
horse dressage elements, while the menu
has a new vegetarian meal.

10. SHED LIGHT ON MARITIME
TRADITIONS. Two dozen Maryland
lighthouses around the Chesapeake Bay are
welcoming a new neighbor. Cambridge’s
40-foot-tall Choptank River Lighthouse
Replica, opening in summer 2012, houses
a museum and boaters’ welcome center.
The original Choptank River Lighthouse,
established in 1871, was demolished by an ice
floe in 1918. Its replacement stood until 1964,
when the lighthouse was dismantled.
11. VISIT A VINEYARD IN VIENNA.
Many of Maryland’s 55 wineries are set amid
beautiful natural backdrops. Among the
newest is Vienna-based Layton’s Chance
Vineyard & Winery, which opened in 2010
and is one of 11 Eastern Shore wineries
along the Chesapeake Wine Trail. Tours are
available, as well as special events such as
grape-stomping and happy hours. In related
news, the Laytons are also new inductees
into Maryland’s Agriculture Hall of Fame.
12. PUT THE HOLIDAYS ON ICE.
Countless locations across Maryland host
seasonal celebrations that are nothing short
of magical. But the dreamiest of all just
might be found at National Harbor, where
DreamWorks Animation has been known to
put on quite a show. For instance, as part
of the two-month-long “Christmas on the
Potomac” event held in 2011, a collection
of Madagascar characters were hand-
carved from two million pounds of ice and
displayed in a 15,000-square-foot “cold
room.” Appearances were also made by
characters from Shrek and Kung Fu Panda.
You never know
what National Harbor
and DreamWorks
Animation will dream up
next!

Across our beautiful landscape, we remember American heroes like George
Washington, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman and Francis Scott Key, who,
through their passion and pioneering spirit, helped to inspire a nation.
MARYLAND’S ROOTS
While exploring the Chesapeake Bay in
1608, Capt. John Smith wrote, “No place
is more convenient for pleasure, profit and
man’s sustenance.” English settlers landed at
St. Clement’s Island, which today is a state
park within a region perfectly suited to the
pleasures of boaters and bikers. Nearby
sits Historic St. Mary’s City, the site that
preceded Annapolis as Maryland’s capital
and has become a museum that delivers a
living-history immersion experience on
800 waterfront acres.
ON THE MOVE
America’s westward expansion depended
heavily on the Historic National Road,
America’s first federally funded highway.
Locations along the road between Baltimore
and Grantsville (including Frederick,
Hagerstown, Cumberland and Frostburg)
also hail the birth of American railroading
and the C&O Canal. The 185-mile-long,
hiker- and biker-friendly C&O Canal
National Historical Park — Maryland’s
most-visited national park — promises
pleasant dining and lodging options
within quaint canal towns.
INDEPENDENCE DAYS
Follow George Washington’s footsteps from a
cabin in Cumberland that he occupied during
the French & Indian War to the State House in
Annapolis, where he resigned as commander
of the Continental Army. While in Annapolis,
tour a mansion built by William Paca, one
of four Marylanders to sign the Declaration
of Independence. To the south, a state park
with a marina, world-class bass fishing and
camping was once the home of General
William Smallwood, a Revolutionary War
hero whose actions in battle were described
by Washington himself as “more precious to
American liberty than any other in its history.”
STAR POWER
“America’s Second War of Independence,”
the War of 1812 touched both shores of
the Chesapeake Bay, from Solomons and
St. Leonard to St. Michaels and Havre de
Grace. At Baltimore’s Fort McHenry, learn
about the “perilous fight” that inspired
Maryland attorney Francis Scott Key to
write the “Star-Spangled Banner.”
History & Heritage
FIELDS OF BATTLE
During the Civil War, Maryland was not only
a border state with split loyalties, but also
a battleground. Driving tours outlined at
www.civilwartraveler.com ofer personal
insights into what was happening across
the state landscape. Follow the trail of
advancing troops and also trace John Wilkes
A Maryland War of 1812 Bicentennial Commission, established by Gov. Martin O’Malley,
is spearheading a multi-year cultural tourism initiative commemorating the state’s
role in the war and the writing of America’s National Anthem. For a list of
events and activities, go online to
www.starspangled200.com.
During the Civil War, Maryland
encountered Union and Confederate troops during the Battles of Gettysburg, South
Mountain and Monocacy. The 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam, which took place on
Sept. 17, 1862, will be remembered at the National Battlefield and at other nearby locations.
To learn MORE about Maryland Marking America’s Milestones, please see the special
commemorative section inside this guide.
MARKING MILESTONES:
ST. CLEMENT’S ISLAND STATE PARK • Coltons Point FORT McHENRY • Baltimore
Booth’s escape route after he assassinated
President Lincoln. Essential stops include
the sites of two key conflicts — Antietam,
“The Bloodiest Single Day of the War,”
and Monocacy, “The Battle that Saved
Washington.”
FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
Several important destinations explore
the trials and triumphs of African
Americans from the slave trade to recent
history. Cambridge celebrates the life
of Harriet Tubman, one of the nation’s
most recognized “conductors” on the
Underground Railroad. Along the Eastern
Shore and into Baltimore, follow the
journey of Frederick Douglass from
slavery to influential statesman.

doesn’t mean we’re all work and no play. Many
farms from Preston to Accident ofer petting
barns, hayrides and seasonal corn mazes.
The King Barn Dairy MOOseum in Boyds
features fun ways to explore dairy
heritage. Our zoos are another

pop culture experience, check out thousands

ACTION PACKED
Within steps of Ocean City’s beach and iconic
boardwalk, thrill rides like the looping Tidal
Wave coaster give way to milder attractions
such as the century-old Trimper’s Carousel.
In Largo, the fun flies high at Six Flags
America with the newest coaster addition,

the human eye inside the Discovery Station
at Hagerstown. In Edgewater, visitors
get to witness the excavation of an early-
18th-century seaport at the 23-acre
Historic London Town and Gardens.
OUTDOOR ADVENTURE
Go wild on the man-made white-water
rafting course at Adventure Sports Center
International in McHenry. Nearby is Wisp
Resort, where 132 acres of ski terrain
beckon winter sports enthusiasts.
During summer days, Wisp provides fun
among the trees with the Flying Squirrel
Canopy Tour. Ziplines also come into play
at Terrapin Adventures in Savage, Go Ape

Jeferson Patterson Park & Museum is located on 560 scenic acres in St. Leonard,
overlooking the site of a War of 1812 battle that was the largest naval conflict to ever
take place within Maryland’s borders. A great time for families to visit the park is in
June during the
“Children’s
Day on the
Farm” rural heritage celebration or in September for
the annual War of 1812 re-enactment.

The stage is set for crowd-pleasing performing arts ranging from opera,
dance and theater to contemporary and classical music. Galleries
and internationally renowned museums are a treat for the eyes.
CRITIC’S CHOICE
Broadway productions such as “Mary
Poppins” and “Mamma Mia!” are staged
in Baltimore at the grand Hippodrome
Theatre. Several “critic’s choice” restaurants
are located nearby along historic Charles

with patrons of the Baltimore Symphony
Orchestra and Lyric Opera Baltimore
while dining before or after performances.
One of the exceptional Baltimore cultural
experiences is July’s Artscape, the nation’s
largest free art festival.
CURTAIN CALL
The elegant Strathmore “campus for the

sports legends, industrial innovations and
even dentistry. For the best deal in town,

walks” and events in Havre de Grace,
Chestertown, Annapolis and elsewhere.

GAME TIME
The state’s first two gaming facilities have
been paying out jackpots for about a
year now. There’s Hollywood Casino, with
1,500 slot machines convenient to I-95 in
Perryville, and the 800-slot Casino at Ocean
Downs, found next to a horse racing track
a stone’s throw from Ocean City. A third
facility — this one with more than 4,500
machines — is part of a new Maryland Live!
entertainment complex adjacent to
Arundel Mills.
CLUB SCENE
Sophisticated, upscale bars
and breweries — some
featuring live jazz
— compete for
attention in the
D.C-area towns of
Bethesda, Chevy
Chase and Silver
Spring. Not to be
outdone, National
Harbor not only
has a restaurant that
synchronizes music
to the setting sun, but also hosts
seasonal celebrations and concerts along
the Potomac Riverfront. The Baltimore
neighborhoods of Fells Point, Canton and
Federal Hill ofer eclectic pubs and bars, and
the Eastern Shore has cool clubs along Kent
Narrows, in Ocean City and around Easton.
SPIRIT WORLD
The term “nightlife” takes an ironic twist
when considering that several Maryland
towns with popular pubs and restaurants
are also known for hauntings. Lantern-led
ghost walks are on tap in Fells Point and
Frederick, as well as Ellicott City, Annapolis
and other locations.
STARRY NIGHTS
Merriweather Post Pavilion, an open-air
music facility in Columbia, hosts popular
acts such as Mumford & Sons and
Katy Perry, while Pier Six Pavilion on
Baltimore’s waterfront fills its own niche
with options like Bill Cosby and Chicago.
Just down the road, the 1st Mariner Arena
welcomes Bob Seger and Cirque de
Soleil’s “Michael Jackson: The Immortal”
world tour. Rams Head On Stage is part
of a family of venues that includes intimate
concert facilities in Annapolis and Baltimore,
a tavern in Savage and Stevensville’s Rams
Head Shore House.
FAIR DEAL
Fairgrounds hold music
parties like the Outlaw
Jam, which brought
heavy-metal greats
Motley Crue and Poison
to Frederick in July 2011.
Teen pop stars such as
Selena Gomez and Justin
Bieber have appeared at the
11-day-long Maryland State Fair
in Timonium.
FESTIVE ATMOSPHERE
On summer weekends, Baltimore
showcases diferent nations during
ethnic festivals that range from the
St. Nicholas Greek Folk Festival to
LatinoFest. In Cumberland, the acclaimed
DelFest bluegrass concert event is an
annual tradition, much like the two-week-
long Columbia Festival of the Arts that
ofers free and ticketed performances and
visual arts. For more Maryland events,

Boaters coming to Annapolis count on finding fine cuisine on shore, whether it’s local
seafood or international dishes. Waterfront locations also serve a variety of beer,
wine and microbrew. This actually isn’t much diferent from the early 19th century,
when Maryland’s capital had already
established itself as a
meeting place and
melting pot. Among many sites with ties to the War of
1812 are the Maryland State House, St. John’s College (which
Francis Scott Key attended) and the U.S. Naval Academy.

VINTAGE DESTINATIONS
Tours, tastings and tantalizing scenery
are yours to enjoy amid 55 wineries and
vineyards. Among several wine trails that
criss-cross Maryland, one incorporates six
wineries in the Frederick area and another
visits seven peaceful Southern Maryland
properties around the Patuxent River. More
fun is uncorked at major wine events in
Annapolis, Columbia, Hollywood, Salisbury
and Timonium, not to mention the huge
Maryland Wine Festival each September in
Westminster.

SEAFOOD SERENADE
Whether taking part in a dinner cruise or
relaxing at a dockside restaurant, you have
found the perfect place to try Chesapeake
Bay fare such as crab cakes, oyster fritters,
fried clams and creamy seafood soups. For
a more personal touch, charter a boat and
fish for your own dinner. Striped bass, also
known as rockfish, is deliciously admired as
“The Pearl of the Chesapeake.”
TASTY TOURS
During a Charm City Food Tour, learn about
Baltimore culture and architecture while
visiting restaurants, shops and markets to
sample excellent local cuisine like Chaps Pit
Beef and Ostrowki’s Sausage. Great dining
experiences are also available as part of
regularly scheduled Restaurant Weeks that
feature special prix fixe menus. In addition
to Baltimore, other towns that have hosted
such occasions include Annapolis, Bethesda-
Chevy Chase, Ellicott City, Frederick,
Hagerstown, Ocean City and Silver Spring.

FROM THE FARM
Fresh, local ingredients make their way
into many seasonal entrees at Maryland
restaurants such as Frederick-based VOLT,
where the Executive Chef is cookbook
author and former “Top Chef” finalist Bryan
Voltaggio, and Baltimore-based Charleston,
featuring Executive Chef and TV personality
Cindy Wolf. The state’s orchards provide
the basis for fruit butters to spread on
homemade biscuits, while local farms grow
sweet corn, tomatoes and greens that accent
any main course. Family-run dairies are also
using their own milk to make delicious ice
cream, often available right on the farm. Then
again, french fries smothered in vinegar also
sound awfully good, especially when served
on the boardwalk in Ocean City!

variety of lodging choices, ranging from waterfront B&Bs to luxury resorts. In
addition, it is known as “The Town That

that British guns would overshoot their targets. Relevant exhibits are inside the
St. Michaels Museum at St. Mary’s Square and Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.

and hands-on Discovery Room. Then relax
on Tilghman Island, a popular getaway
separated from Maryland’s Eastern Shore
mainland by Knapps Narrows. Check out
the fleet of skipjacks in Dogwood Harbor.

Dear Friends,

A great way to see Maryland and
learn about our unique history is
to explore our 18 Scenic Byways,
which wind along more than 7,000
miles of coastline though charming
small towns, waterfront villages
and vibrant cityscapes.
Discover Maryland’s Civil War
Trails, which highlight the pivotal
role that our State played in the
War Between the States. Along the
way, visit towns that ofer exceptional
dining options, classic B&Bs, galleries
that display local artists’ work and
musical and theatrical productions
in historic venues. And, enjoy many
beautiful vineyards that are perfect
for picnicking.
Our Star-Spangled Banner
National Historic Trail will take
you through Maryland’s picturesque
countryside as well as our urban
centers rich with stories of our
heritage. These places played an
integral role in forming a young
nation’s identity in 1814 but today
ofer great dining, shopping and
outdoor recreation.
The Chesapeake Bay and its
tributaries on the Harriet Tubman
Underground Railroad Byway lead
you to a secret network of trails and
sanctuaries, which helped enslaved
people flee north out of Southern
states to escape bondage. The tidal
marshes and flat country roads invite
you to enjoy the landscape aboard
kayaks and bicycles and discover
towns filled with Eastern Shore
art galleries and shops, plus food
harvested from local waters and farms.
We invite you to enjoy these
Maryland Milestones with family
and friends and create memories
that will last a lifetime.
Sincerely,



Martin O’Malley

TRIP IDEA FROM PERILOUS FIGHT TO ‘PROUDLY W
E HAIL’:
A Star-Spangled Banner Journey
Slip back 200 years ago to the waning days of the War of 1812. Trace the path of British forces moving
up the Chesapeake Bay, tearing through towns like Bladensburg and Havre de Grace, and finally
bombarding Baltimore. It was here, as dawn’s early light revealed an American victory, that Maryland
lawyer Francis Scott Key was inspired to write “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Bicentennial commemorations take place around Maryland well into 2015, with particular emphasis
on destinations around the Baltimore Harbor area. Many locations tied to the war are also part of the
Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network, meaning that bay-based activities are easily accessible just beyond
each historic landmark. Look for references in this section to the STAR-SPANGLED BANNER NATIONAL
HISTORIC TRAIL, a National Park Service route featuring multiple sites that ofer opportunities for both
recreation and interpretation related to the war’s Chesapeake Campaign. www.nps.gov/stsp

THE BACKGROUND
The United States declared war in June 1812 after Britain imposed
trade restrictions and began intercepting U.S. merchant ships. Already
engaged in conflicts with France and Spain, the British at first used
a defensive strategy against American forces, blockading the Atlantic coast and
thwarting U.S. invasions of Canada. In 1814, after England’s war with France concluded,
the British more aggressively pursued America by deploying three large armies, one of
which moved through Maryland to capture the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. But a
flurry of American triumphs in Baltimore, New York and New Orleans at last repulsed
all three British invasions, at the same time contributing to a sense of national pride
that accompanied the publishing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” After more than two-
and-a-half years of fighting, the Treaty of Ghent was signed, ushering in an “Era of
Good Feelings” between the two nations.

1. Launch a driving tour from
the Southern Maryland fishing
village of Solomons, famous for
fine seafood, peaceful sunsets
and the Calvert Marine Museum,
where a fiber-optic map explains
the British invasion route up the
Patuxent River. Solomons is also
the recommended starting point
for the Star-Spangled Banner
National Historic Trail, a branch
of which curls south across the
Patuxent River to incorporate
sites such as Leonardtown’s
Tudor Hall, a Colonial House
now occupied by the St. Mary’s
County Historical Society. In
July 1814, it was Tudor Hall’s
Elizabeth Key, a distant in-law
of Francis Scott Key, who
persuaded the Royal Marines
not to burn Leonardtown’s
courthouse building by telling
them it was a house of worship.
Another stop is the Hollywood-
based Sotterley Plantation,
where the British drove of
300 militiamen and set fire to
a tobacco warehouse. Invasion
forces also landed in Chaptico
and caused considerable
damage to Christ Episcopal
Church, which has a Key family
vault in the cemetery.
2. A month prior to activities in
Leonardtown, the largest naval
engagement in Maryland history
occurred of the shores of
St. Leonard. Commodore
Joshua Barney’s 18-vessel
Chesapeake Flotilla appeared
to be trapped by a superior
force of British blockaders,
but Barney orchestrated a
surprise attack and the flotilla
escaped. On shore sits the
560-acre Jeferson Patterson

6. With the way clear to
Washington, D.C., British troops
set fire to the White House, U.S.
Capitol and other public buildings.
Meanwhile, Fort Washington
was hastily destroyed by its own
garrison to prevent capture.
Rebuilt 10 years later, the fort is
one of the few remaining seacoast
forts with its original design.
Expansive grounds are great for
biking and fishing.
7. Briefly leaving the main
route of the Star-Spangled
Banner National Historic Trail,
sidetrack east into Annapolis,
where, from the distinctive
wooden dome of the Maryland
State House, British movements
could be easily observed. The
U.S. Naval Academy Museum
contains paintings and artifacts
such as the original “Don’t
Give Up The Ship” flag flown
during the Battle of Lake Erie
in 1813. Sites linked to Francis
Scott Key include the college
he attended and the house
where he was married. An
Annapolis-based cruise ofers
a pair of Chesapeake Bay tours
that explore British war eforts
directed at Baltimore.
8. Enemy troops came ashore
near present-day Fort Howard
Park in September 1814, intent
on marching northwest into
Baltimore. But during the Battle
of North Point, American militia
delayed the British advance long
enough for the city’s defenses to
be strengthened. A North Point
State Battlefield is currently in
the works under the auspices
of the Maryland Department of
Natural Resources.
9. The climactic moment of a
Star-Spangled Banner journey in
Maryland is a trip to Baltimore, a
busy seaport where many sleek
sailing vessels were built for
Upper Marlboro, where an 18th-
century, Federal-period house at
the Mount Calvert Historical and
Archaeological Park overlooks
the Patuxent River. To access a
water route that accompanies
the Star-Spangled Banner
National Historic Trail, Patuxent
River Park provides three public
boat ramps and ofers canoe
and kayak rentals.

privateers that harassed British
vessels. At Fort McHenry, located
on land now preserved as a
national monument and shrine,
American troops withstood a 25-
hour British naval bombardment
in September 1814. Their bravery
amid the “rockets’ red glare”
inspired Francis Scott Key to
write the National Anthem.
The fort’s new visitor center
features exhibits, touch-screen
panels, interactive displays and
a life-size statue of Key. Watch
an inspirational orientation
film and then step outside for
a self-guided tour. The lawn
surrounding the fort is a favorite
picnicking place.
To see the oldest known
version of Key’s original
manuscript, travel a few miles
up the road to the Maryland
Historical Society Museum. Here,
a Star-Spangled Banner Gallery
also has paintings and artifacts.
The 30-foot-wide, 42-foot-long
banner that Key saw at the
conclusion of Fort McHenry’s
“perilous fight” was sewn in
Baltimore by Mary Pickersgill,
whose property, now known as
the Star-Spangled Banner Flag
House, showcases a full-sized glass
replica of the flag. (The original one
hangs in the Smithsonian’s National
Museum of American History in
Washington, D.C.)
Among the pubs and shops
of Fells Point, glimpses remain
of this Baltimore maritime
community’s past as a major
supplier of privateering ships
that harassed British vessels
during the war. And the Pride
of Baltimore II, a reproduction
of a Baltimore schooner ship,
is docked at the Inner Harbor
when not sailing to ports
around the world as the State
of Maryland’s ofcial Goodwill
Ambassador.

EASTERN SHORE
10. Alongside the Susquehanna
River, Havre de Grace was
attacked in May 1813 by a
force of 400 British troops. A
Centennial Memorial erected in
1914 pays tribute to local war
hero John O’Neill, who single-
handedly manned a cannon but
was then wounded and taken
prisoner. Behind the monument
is the Concord Point Lighthouse,
to which O’Neill was named
the first lighthouse keeper in
recognition of his war service.
A boardwalk promenade along
the waterfront runs a half-mile
between Concord Point and an
eight-acre park overlooking the
City Yacht Basin.
Nearer Perryville, ruins are
visible of the Principio Furnace.
Though destroyed by enemy
raiders, it was quickly rebuilt and
went back to work producing
iron into the 20th century.
Just up the road in Elkton, Elk

of Fort Hollingsworth, where

citizens gathered in February
1815 to celebrate the signing of
the Treaty of Ghent. Earlier in
the war, local militia had twice
repulsed attacks in the area.
11. Found amid cornfields near
Fairlee, five miles west of
Chestertown, is a Caulks
Field battle monument.
In an August 1814
standof, 15 British
soldiers were
killed, including
the promising
young captain Sir
Peter Parker. Only
three Americans
were wounded,
helping to buoy the
nation’s morale.
12. The former shipbuilding
center of St. Michaels, twice
attacked during the war, has
achieved legendary status: When
facing a twilight naval barrage
in August 1813, townspeople
were said to have hung lanterns
from the tops of houses and
trees so that British guns would
overshoot their targets. It’s
more likely that the enemy was
distracted by American cannons
placed at strategic points around
the harbor, but St. Michaels
latched on to the nickname “The
Town that Fooled the British.”
Inside the St. Michaels Museum
at St. Mary’s Square, a model
shows the area’s appearance
during the war. On the edge
of the square is the circa-1805
Cannonball House, so named
because it was struck during the
British attack. A small exhibit
related to the war is found
inside the Chesapeake Bay
Maritime Museum, popular for its
lighthouse and working boatyard.
One of the final engagements
of the war, and the last in
Maryland, occurred about 40
miles south of St. Michaels on
Taylors Island. A monument
near the Slaughter Creek Bridge
speaks of the Battle of the Ice
Mound, Feb. 7, 1815. During this
skirmish, local militia captured
a British vessel after it became
stuck in ice.

Scenes of the Civil War
Two competing American forces battled on Southern soil for more than a year before finally tumbling
into Northern territory in 1862. General Robert E. Lee believed that a victory on Union land might
solidify foreign support for the Confederate cause. Maryland loomed as an attractive target: Not only
was it a border state with widespread secessionist sympathies, but it offered key transportation and
supply links along with access to Washington, D.C. In Western Maryland, Lee’s efforts came to a
head with the bloodiest single-day battle of the Civil War.
One hundred and fifty years later, driving tours throughout the state highlight hallowed battlefields,
war-related museums and a variety of historic sites involved in sesquicentennial events. One of the
final chapters of the Civil War period was also written here: In April 1815, the Southern Maryland
countryside was used as an escape route by a presidential assassin.

THE BACKGROUND
Frustrated by the federal government’s stance on
issues such as state’s rights and the expansion of slavery,
11 Southern states seceded from the Union shortly after
the 1860 election of a nationalistic president, Abraham
Lincoln. Hostilities began in April 1861, with Southern Confederate
forces taking part in a bloodless attack on Fort Sumter, SC. The first
bloodshed of the war occurred a week later when a mob of Southern
sympathizers set upon Union troops outside a Baltimore train station —
four soldiers and a dozen civilians were killed. During the next four years,
620,000 soldiers and an undetermined number of civilians lost their
lives as a result of the deadliest war in American history. With the Union
victory, slavery was abolished and the federal government’s role was
strengthened.

1. An “Antietam Campaign” Civil
War Trail begins at the present-
day position of White’s Ferry,
where Confederate troops forded
the Potomac River and entered
Maryland in 1862. Cavalries clashed
in Poolesville, which was also
visited by Union soldiers in 1861 and
Confederate forces again in 1863.
The John Poole House, modeled as
an early 19th-century general store,
features Civil War memorabilia.
2. On the outskirts of Frederick,
where a must-see destination
is the National Museum of Civil
War Medicine, is Monocacy
National Battlefield, which tells
the story of two important
episodes of the war. Inquire at
the visitor center about Gen.
Robert E. Lee’s “Special Order
191,” which detailed Confederate
troop movements during the
Campaign of 1862. A copy of
the order was found by a Union
private and ended up playing
a role in subsequent battles.
Monocacy was also the site of
an 1864 conflict dubbed “The
Battle that Saved Washington.”
3. South Mountain Battlefield
State Park, a hiker’s mecca,
encompasses rough terrain that
saw fierce fighting for three
days in September 1862. Homes
and churches in the towns of
Burkittsville and Middletown
received wounded soldiers,
including future President
Rutherford B. Hayes.
4. War relics are displayed at a
museum in Boonsboro, where
Gen. Lee briefly established
headquarters. Nearby is Gathland

5. In the town of Sharpsburg, the
bloodiest single-day battle of
the war took place along Bloody
Lane, across Burnside Bridge,
amid a cornfield and outside
Dunker Church, all of which are
now preserved as Antietam
National Battlefield. It was the
first major battle on Northern
soil: Casualties numbered about
23,000 — one of every five
fighting men. There was no clear
victor, but Confederate forces
retreated. A few days later,
President Abraham Lincoln felt
the time was right to issue his
Emancipation Proclamation, a
major step toward prohibiting
slavery.
The Newcomer House Visitor
Information Center, east of
Sharpsburg, can help with
planning a trip. Stops should
include both the Pry House
Field Hospital Museum and the
Kennedy Farmhouse, staging
area for abolitionist John
Brown’s failed pre-Civil War raid
of an arsenal in Harpers Ferry,
WV. Brown was captured and
executed, establishing him as a
martyr for anti-slavery causes.
6. A straight shot north of
Antietam along Sharpsburg
Pike (Rt. 65) is Hagerstown,
which was a key transportation
hub during the war. Today, it
features railroad museums,
historic mansions and Rose Hill
Cemetery, the burial site for
more than 2,000 Confederate
soldiers. Keeping vigil over the
graves is a 135-year-old, 19-foot-
high monument called “Statue
of Hope.” The Washington
County Museum of Fine Arts
ofers a special “Valley of the
Shadow” exhibit, with Civil War-
era textiles, weaponry, diaries
and more.
7. Another ofcial Maryland
Civil War Trail, “Gettysburg
Campaign: Invasion and Retreat”
follows troop movements
through the area of Westminster,
which provides art galleries and
boutiques. Around Main Street,
Capt. Charles Corbit and his
band of Union soldiers delayed
Confederate Gen. J.E.B. Stuart’s
cavalry long enough to render it
inefective for most of the Battle
of Gettysburg in 1863. At the
Union Mills Homestead north
of Westminster, a Civil War
encampment takes place each
July. En route to Gettysburg, the
Confederate cavalry camped
here, followed hours later by
Union infantry.
8. Baltimore’s B&O Railroad
Museum displays the largest
collection of Civil War railroad
equipment in the world and
ofers a narrated train ride
to the Mount Clare Mansion
Museum, which occupies the
former site of the largest Union
encampment in the city. Civil
War exhibits and activities are
also available at the Maryland

EXTEND YOUR TRIP:
In Western Maryland, the B&O Railroad turned
Cumberland — “Queen City of the Alleghenies”
— into one of the most important depots in
the country. Throughout the war, Confederate
cavalry pestered residents and conducted raids.
supplies that had been stashed
there. Mary Surratt, who also ran
a boarding house in Washington,
was later hanged for her
supposed role in the assassination
plot. Guided tours of the house
and tavern explore the story of
the Lincoln conspiracy.
11. As Booth and Herold fled
to the Potomac River and what
they thought would be safety
across the water in Virginia, they
stopped in Waldorf at the home
of an acquaintance, Dr. Samuel
Mudd. Perhaps unaware that the
president had been assassinated,
Mudd treated Booth’s broken
leg and sent the two young men
on their way. For his actions,
Mudd served several years in
prison but was pardoned in 1869
by President Andrew Johnson.
Along with a house museum,
Mudd’s 10-acre Waldorf property
has a gift shop, exhibit building
and outbuildings. Mudd is
buried at St. Mary’s Church and
Cemetery in nearby Bryantown.

12. The driving tour that follows
Booth’s escape route skirts Zekiah
Swamp and enters Port Tobacco
before the trail crosses into
Virginia, which is where Herold was
captured and Booth was killed by a
federal soldier. Another significant
Civil War site is found farther
east along the Potomac River.
On the edge of the Chesapeake
Bay, Point Lookout State Park in
Scotland includes a museum and
monuments speaking to its past
as a notoriously overcrowded
camp for 50,000 Confederate
prisoners. Hauntings in and around
a park-based lighthouse have been
reported for decades.
10. In April 1815, John Wilkes
Booth, an actor from Maryland
who held strong Southern
sympathies, assassinated President
Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre
in Washington, D.C. Hobbled by
a broken leg, he then rode on
horseback south through the
Maryland countryside, where one
of the first stops on an ofcial Civil
War Trail tracing Booth’s escape
route is the Surratt House Museum.
Booth and accomplice David
Herold ducked into this Clinton-
based tavern to retrieve guns and

TRIP IDEA PATH TO FREEDOM:
A PPPPPPPP
Harriet Tubman’s Underground Railroad
While slavery still flourished in many states during the mid-1800s, thousands of enslaved people
sought freedom along a secret network of meeting points, trails, waterways and sanctuaries.
This was the Underground Railroad — and Maryland, located on the border between North and
South, played a prominent role.
Perhaps the Railroad’s most famous “conductor” was Harriet Tubman, an escaped enslaved person
born on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and called “The Moses of Her People.” After escaping slavery in 1849,
Tubman returned 13 times over the course of a decade to guide about 70 enslaved people to freedom.
She was also a Union spy during the Civil War and became active in the women’s sufrage movement.
The 100th anniversary of Tubman’s death — on March 10, 1913 — touches of remembrances of her legacy
while also concentrating eforts to celebrate the accomplishments of other local African Americans, such
as statesman Frederick Douglass, surveyor Benjamin Banneker and labor leader Isaac Myers.
& A Proud African-American Heritage
THE BACKGROUND
The Underground Railroad (a phrase
coined sometime around the early
1830s) was only “underground”
in the sense that it was a covert
network, and it was hardly a railroad
except that its trails and waterways
conveyed people from one place
to another. Rail terminology was
used as something of a code by
“conductors,” who, at great risk to
themselves, guided the freedom
seekers to “stations” or “depots”
operated by “station masters.” The
Railroad actually began in the late
18th century and ran until about
1862. Enslaved people seeking new
lives in the Northern United States,
Canada and sometimes Mexico
would generally travel by night,
usually covering between 10 and
20 miles between stations. Some
estimates suggest that as many as
100,000 enslaved people were aided
by the Underground Railroad.

for his role as a conductor.
A new 6-foot-by-6-foot mural,
painted by a local Tubman
relative, was recently unveiled
at Cambridge’s Harriet Tubman
Memorial Garden.
  The 65-foot Skipjack Nathan
of Dorchester ofers scheduled
heritage tours, including a sail
up Cambridge Creek and on the
Choptank River that immerses
travelers in the world of an
1850s port city.
  In the 1960s, Baltimore native
Gloria Richardson led a civil
rights movement in Cambridge
that resulted in the promise of
school integration and equal
access to housing and jobs. A
Cambridge Civil Rights Walking
Tour is available.
2. East of the 2,700-acre
Blackwater National Wildlife
Refuge, a marker shows
the area where Tubman
spent her early years. The
landscape has changed
little in the last 190 years.
Recreational options
include cycling, paddling
and observing the annual
migration of snow geese.
Coming in the next year or so
is a Harriet Tubman Underground
Railroad State Park covering
17 acres adjacent to the wildlife
refuge. The park will feature a
15,000-square-foot visitor center,
an exhibit hall and theater, a
memorial garden and trails.
Next, visit a replica of the
Bucktown Village Store, which
is where Tubman is said to
have performed her first act

1. Start at the Sailwinds Park
Visitor Center in Cambridge to
get information and pick up a
“Finding A Way To Freedom”
driving tour guide, which features
more than two dozen sites in
Dorchester and Caroline counties.
Cambridge is also the starting
point for a Harriet Tubman
Underground Railroad National
Scenic Byway that covers 125
miles along Maryland’s Eastern
Shore. Visit the Harriet Tubman
Museum and Educational Center,
which celebrates her life with
displays and tours. Also, stop
by the Dorchester County
Courthouse, where an exhibit
describes the dramatic maritime
escape of Tubman’s niece,
Kessiah Bowley, from the slave
auction block. The Rev. Samuel
Green, a free black agent, was
tried at the courthouse and
sentenced to 10 years for owning
a copy of the novel Uncle Tom’s
Cabin, which was credited with
fueling the abolitionist movement.
Irishman Hugh Hazlett was
sentenced to 44 years in prison
of defiance by helping a slave
escape from an overseer. During
the encounter, however, Tubman
was struck in the head with a
two-pound iron weight, leading
to lifelong health issues. The
store stands on its original
foundation and now houses
an outfitter that ofers kayak,
canoe and bicycle rentals.
3. The East New Market
National Historic District, known
for its antiques stores, ofers
self-guided walking tours
amid three centuries of fine
architecture. Mt. Zion United
Methodist Church, dating to
1880, was built on land deeded
to a group of African Americans
that included Underground
Railroad agent Samuel Green.
Next comes Linchester, the
home of a historic gristmill
that employed both free and
enslaved African Americans.
This is followed by Preston, site
of the only surviving log cabin
on the Eastern Shore known to
be built by an African American.
4. A westward sidetrack toward
the Chesapeake Bay brings
visitors to Easton, the area
where Frederick Douglass, the
former enslaved person who
became a famous orator and
statesman, lived his early years.
In town, art exhibitions, great
dining and a museum tour are
all available. A seven-and-a-half-
foot-tall memorial to Douglass
stands on the front lawn of the
Talbot County Courthouse, site
where he presented several
lectures as an adult. A short
drive away in St. Michaels,
walking tours organized by
a local museum follow in the
footsteps of Douglass as an
enslaved teenage farm laborer.
5. Martinak State Park provides
terrific camping, boating and
fishing near Denton, which
features several Underground
Railroad ties. The Courthouse
Square was the site of both
a slave market and a jail that
held conductors such as Hugh
Hazlett. The Museum of Rural
Life includes relevant exhibits,
and the early-19th-century
Tuckahoe Neck Meeting House
had possible Underground
Railroad links.

EXTEND YOUR TRIP:
A trip into Southern Maryland should include a stop in La Plata
to visit the African-American Heritage Museum, featuring
artifacts from the time of slavery. Interpretive
panels around the Drayden African-American
Schoolhouse tell about this circa-1890
structure. And the Hollywood-based
Sotterley Plantation has a rare 1830s slave
cabin and more than 20 other outbuildings.

7. Back-tracking just a bit to
cross the Chesapeake Bay
Bridge, enter Annapolis to find
an Underground Railroad exhibit
at the Banneker-Douglass
Museum (named for Benjamin
Banneker and Frederick
Douglass). Amid various
state government buildings in
Maryland’s capital city, visitors
can admire memorials to North
Pole explorer Matthew Henson
and Supreme Court Justice
Thurgood Marshall. At the
historic City Dock, an Alex Haley
Memorial Statue honors the
Pulitzer Prize-winning author
of Roots. Haley’s African-born
ancestor, Kunta Kinte, arrived
here on a slave ship in 1767.
The Kunta Kinte Heritage
Festival, held each September,
delivers arts, entertainment,
food and fun.
8. In Baltimore, dig deep into
stories of Tubman, Douglass and
others at the Reginald F. Lewis
Museum celebrates the life
of the free African-American
mathematician and astronomer
who assisted with the planning
of Washington, D.C. The park’s
142-acre property includes
a Colonial cabin, a Victorian
farmhouse and nature trails.
10. Along with its railroad
history, quaint shops and
numerous ghost stories, Ellicott
City has a rich African-American
heritage. Dating to the late
1800s, the Ellicott City Colored
School utilizes docent-led
tours to explore the history of
education for African-American
children. At a new location in
nearby Fulton, the African Art
Museum of Maryland has a
collection of masks, sculptures,
textiles, jewelry, furniture and
musical instruments.
11. On the two-mile
Underground Railroad
Experience Trail at Woodlawn
Manor Cultural Park in Sandy
Spring, use a trail map or join a
volunteer “conductor” for a hike
that celebrates Quaker heritage
and anti-slavery traditions. More
of the story is told in exhibits at
the Sandy Spring Museum and
the Sandy Spring Slave Museum
and African Art Gallery.
12. Two dozen sites in the
Frederick area with links to
African-American heritage
range from the Best Farm,
which was once home to a large
enslaved population and is now
a component of Monocacy
National Battlefield, and the
Roger Brooke Taney House
and Slave Quarters, found on
property owned by Chief Justice
Taney until 1823. Cunningham
Falls State Park in Thurmont
has the Catoctin Furnace,
where free and enslaved African
Americans labored to produce
iron for Revolutionary and Civil
war arms.
Museum of Maryland African
American History & Culture.
Then stop at The National
Great Blacks in Wax Museum,
which displays a full-model
slave ship and more than 100
figures ranging from Tubman
and Douglass to President
Barack Obama. Hands-on
activities and a boat-building
exhibit highlight the Frederick
Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime
Park, and from February to
December, a Frederick Douglass
“Path to Freedom” walking tour
explores Baltimore’s Fells Point
neighborhood, where Douglass
resided for about 12 years.
9. Humble slave quarters
are dwarfed by an elaborate
Georgian mansion at the 60-
acre Hampton National Historic
Site in Towson. The Maryland
governor who lived here
kept as many as 338 slaves.

4. STOP FOR A SHOW: There is no
shortage of crowd-pleasing performing
arts, from Broadway shows, comedy
acts and intimate music venues in
Baltimore to big-name concerts at a
large pavilion in Columbia. Meanwhile,
ballet, opera, choral music and a long-
respected symphony orchestra (now
celebrating its 50th birthday!) are all under
one roof at the Maryland Hall for the Creative
Arts in Annapolis.
5. MAKE MEMORIES AT THE MILLS:
The unsurpassed Arundel Mills “shopper-
tainment” complex welcomes more than
14 million people per year to catch a

6. EASE INTO SMALL-TOWN CHARM:
Bike along scenic Carroll County routes that

among grand houses, charming churches and
maybe even a few ghostly haunts in places
such as Ellicott City. Inns and B&Bs ofer all
the comforts of home, and you can deepen
your level of relaxation with a spa treatment
at a nearby health and wellness center.
7. FOLLOW THE BALTIMORE YOUTH
MOVEMENT: After seeing the dolphins at
the National Aquarium, dig up dinosaur
mysteries inside the Maryland Science Center,
browse pop culture’s toys and comic books
at Geppi’s Entertainment Museum or give the
kids a brain and body workout at the Port
Discovery Children’s Museum. Baltimore is
also the location of one of Maryland’s several
zoos and animal preserves; it features a kid’s
section with lily pads to leap on and giant
turtle shells to spin in.

DECOY & WILDLIFE ART FESTIVAL • Havre de Grace
8. GET IN TOUCH WITH THE PAST:
Hands-on history gets down and dirty
during Archaeological Dig Days at the
Historic London Town and Gardens. Then
in the evening, dine like a king and watch
knights joust at the Medieval Times Dinner &
Tournament at Arundel Mills.
9. EXPLORE TOUR OPTIONS: In historic
Annapolis, which has houses linked to
signers of the Declaration of Independence,
some of the best ways to see the sites
are on foot, in a horse-drawn carriage or
navigating a Segway. You can also saunter
over to the historic Annapolic Market House
at City Dock for food, arts and crafts, or
just pull up a stool in a waterfront pub and
watch the world go by.

10. GET THE GOODS ON GRAPES:
Along various wine trails, you’ll not
only find tasty cabernets and
chardonnays but also bucolic settings
that are perfect for picnicking or
enjoying regularly scheduled concerts
and events. The Piedmont Wine Trail,
for instance, features eight wineries
including Maryland’s oldest, 67-year-old
Boordy Vineyards.
11. SLIP INTO SPORTS MODE: Pro
baseball, football and indoor soccer
teams have brought numerous national
championships to Baltimore. Learn
about Maryland’s proud sports heritage at
the Babe Ruth Birthplace & Museum, Sports
Baltimore not only saw the first bloodshed of the
Civil War (four civilians died during riots in April 1861),
but remained dangerously divided in its loyalties as
Union troops and supplies moved continuously through
town. Among many local sites hosting special exhibits
that commemorate the war’s 150th anniversary are the
B&O RAILROAD MUSEUM (“The War Came By Train”) and
MARYLAND HISTORICAL SOCIETY (“Divided Voices” Civil War expo).
Elsewhere, Annapolis’ role as the seat of government and home of the U.S. NAVAL
ACADEMY enhanced its importance during the war, while locations in Westminster saw
action prior to the Battle of Gettysburg.
Back in Baltimore, FORT MCHENRY — already recognized as the most-visited War of
1812 site in the nation — now features a dynamic visitor center that explores the fort’s
history and the war’s impact on America in even greater detail. The fort and Baltimore’s
STAR-SPANGLED BANNER FLAG HOUSE MUSEUM are both part of a Star-Spangled
Banner National Historic Trail that hugs the Chesapeake Bay. Check online at
www.StarSpangled200.org for more destinations and events related to the War of 1812
bicentennial.
For an exploration of the Underground Railroad and Harriet Tubman’s
eforts as a “conductor,” key sites in Baltimore include the REGINALD
F. LEWIS MUSEUM OF MARYLAND AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY
& CULTURE and THE NATIONAL GREAT BLACKS IN WAX MUSEUM.
To learn more about Maryland Marking America’s Milestones,
please see the special commemorative section inside this guide.

12. SWING INTO ACTION: Several public
golf courses are regularly ranked among
Golf Digest magazine’s favorite venues.
But if you’d rather swing among the treetops
in Savage, fitness has never been more fun
than at Terrapin Adventures, which features
a zipline challenge course that ofers great
team-building activities.

Baltimore inspired
the National Anthem.

his is where the story of Maryland begins. It was here, nearly four centuries ago,
that settlers stepped of a boat from England, admired the gorgeous location they
had found and set about building new lives. Today’s travelers can also get caught up
in the natural beauty of an unspoiled landscape that flows inland from the Potomac and Patuxent
rivers. It’s a boater’s wonderland, a sightseer’s delight and a seafood-lover’s dream come true.
What a beautiful place to begin a story!

Calvert County
Bay charms sparkle amid quiet beaches,
dramatic clifside park areas and maritime
communities. One of the largest fishing
fleets on the Chesapeake invites you to enjoy
“Maryland’s Sportfishing Capital” while also
experiencing fossil hunting or uncovering
local history at lighthouses and museums.
From canoe trails to bayfront towns, Calvert
County displays quite a calming nature.

If you’re like Capt. John Smith, eager to
explore a breathtaking landscape, follow
the Potomac River to the nation’s backyard.
For a taste of Chesapeake traditions, tour
American heritage sites and then enjoy
crabs, oysters and the “catch of the day” at a
waterfront restaurant. Recreational pursuits
range from bird-watching and biking to
fishing and fossil hunting.

1. GO BACK TO THE BEGINNING: More
than 375 years old, Maryland’s Colonial
capital just keeps getting better. Historic
St. Mary’s City, once the site of the fourth
permanent settlement in British North
America and now an 800-acre outdoor
museum, is constantly renovating structures
and unearthing new links to the past.
Nearby, a water-taxi ride from Coltons Point
to St. Clement’s Island gets you to the spot
where Colonists initially landed.

TIME IT RIGHT:
10. REACH FOR THE BEACH: Seductive
serenity is a specialty at Chesapeake Beach
(“Charter Fishing Capital of Maryland”) and
North Beach. Summertime trolley service
links the twin bayside towns.
11. BE SEDUCED BY SOLOMONS: Visit
Solomons any time of the year to find fine
bay dining, romantic sunsets and clear
sailing from one of North America’s deepest
natural ports. Tour a renovated oyster-
shucking house, cruise aboard a 19th-century
“bugeye” and explore the area’s maritime
heritage at the Calvert Marine Museum.
12. PEDAL WITH PASSION: In a region big
on biking, one popular trail reaches 7.5 miles
around a 250-acre lake inside St. Mary’s
River State Park; another is the 13-mile
Indian Head Rail Trail, which runs alongside
mature forests and natural wetlands.
MARKING MILESTONES:
JEFFERSON PATTERSON PARK & MUSEUM • St. Leonard
6. TRAVEL AT WHARF SPEED: The
Leonardtown Wharf Public Park has quickly
established itself as a popular push-of point
for canoe and kayak excursions.
7. DROP A LINE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME:
The host of national fishing tourneys, Small-
wood State Park is an old favorite among
boaters casting a line for bass and perch.
8. HAVE A BALL WITH THE BLUE CRABS:
The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs,
co-owned by Baltimore baseball legend
Brooks Robinson, play at an intimate,
family-friendly stadium in Waldorf.     
9. QUENCH YOUR APPETITE FOR
RELAXATION: Warm welcomes await you
at crab houses, surf-and-turf restaurants
and more than half-a-dozen local wineries
that have gathered their share of awards.
2. FLOW WITH THE HISTORY: The Potomac
River — famous for national fishing tournaments
and bald eagle nesting sites — also entices
history seekers. Four hundred years ago,
Capt. John Smith explored its mysteries; now
the Potomac is an “American Heritage River”
flowing alongside inviting communities such
as Port Tobacco and Leonardtown. A national
historic water trail, named in Smith’s honor, is
marked with “smart buoys” that communicate
historical information and transmit
observational data to passing paddlers.
3. LET US LIGHT THE WAY: A trip to local
lighthouses such as Point Lookout and
Point No Point (both more than a century
old) makes for a fun day along Southern
Maryland waterways. Also, stop by a
museum near the Piney Point beacon, where
the Potomac River Maritime Exhibit Building
features four historic wooden vessels.
4. MAKE A SPLASH:
Refreshing water-based
activities are fun for all
ages at Kings Landing
Park and amid the pools,
slides and fountains
at Chesapeake Beach
Water Park.
5. WALK ON THE WILD SIDE: Sift for
shells and fossilized shark’s teeth on beaches
in Lusby and Indian Head, or follow a
boardwalk into the primordial world of a
Prince Frederick-based bald cypress swamp.

Two centuries ago during the War of 1812, the largest naval engagement to ever
occur in Maryland waters took place alongside the present site of the JEFFERSON
PATTERSON PARK & MUSEUM. A re-enactment is held each September.
Now jump ahead to the Civil War era. Confederate prisoners
were held at POINT LOOKOUT on what is now state park
property, and the Waldorf home of physician SAMUEL
MUDD served as a temporary hiding place for presidential
assassin John Wilkes Booth.

OXFORD-BELLEVUE FERRY • Bellevue
1. TAKE O.C. TO THE EXTREME: Beyond
a 10-mile strand of white Ocean City sand,
you’ll find roller coasters, water slides,
speedboat rides and miniature golf. It’s not
uncommon to while away entire days on the
world-famous, Victorian-style boardwalk,
eating ice cream, buying T-shirts and playing
amusement-park games. Golfing, antiquing
and outlet shopping are popular pursuits all
year long, followed by dinner at a seaside
restaurant. Many visitors to the “White
Marlin Capital of the World” also choose to
hook their own meal. Events throughout the
year include the Dew Tour “action sports”
competition, which takes place in July.
2. ACCESS THE ARTS: Several areas have
earned recognition as Maryland Arts &
Entertainment Districts for their commitment
to cultural oferings. One is Berlin, which
features entertainment options like
golfing, horse racing and dining, but also
charms travelers with opportunities such
as horse-and-carriage rides. Other Arts &
Entertainment Districts include Salisbury,
Cambridge, Denton, Elkton and Snow Hill.

12
3. CASINOS & CLUBS: For the over-21
crowd, Hollywood Casino in Perryville and
the Berlin-based Casino at Ocean Downs
feature a combined 2,250 slot machines and
multiple dining options. The Eastern Shore
also has concerts in the park, contemporary
clubs around Kent Narrows and Stevensville,
and a variety of locally flavored events such
as wine festivals and barbecue celebrations.
Easton enjoys a burgeoning music scene,
much of which revolves around the historic,
art-deco Avalon Theatre.
4. DON’T WAIT TO HIT THE WATER: Janes
Island State Park has long been hailed by the
American Canoe Association as home to some
of the nation’s finest water trails. Pocomoke
River routes give you a glimpse of old-growth
forest and bald cypress swampland, and
Chestertown has a new kayak launch ramp. If
you want someone else to do the navigating,
charter boat captains are available for fishing
and sightseeing excursions.
5. STOP AND LOOK AROUND: For
excellent hiking and biking, look no further
than Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge,
Viewtrail 100 and the five-mile-long Cross
Island Trail. Of course, no one should leave
the region without visiting Assateague
Island, where wild ponies roam freely along
the beach and marshland.
6. HELP YOURSELF TO SOME HERITAGE:
Four ofcial Maryland Heritage Areas
promise their own unique experiences, such
as observing millions of migrating birds along
the Atlantic Flyway. There are also several
lighthouses dotting the Eastern Shore,
including one in St. Michaels that is part of a
world-renowned maritime museum.
7. BE A BIRD WATCHER: In Salisbury —
not far from a wildlife management area
where waterfowl roost and a stadium that
features minor-league baseball played
by Shorebirds — the Ward Museum of
Wildfowl Art brings you the world’s
largest collection of decorative bird
carvings. Salisbury also features one of
the finest free-admission “small zoos”
in the country.

TIME IT RIGHT:
MARKING MILESTONES:
8. MAKE A DISCOVERY: Pocomoke City’s
Delmarva Discovery Center, which recently
added a 6,000-gallon aquarium, lets you
explore three centuries on the Pocomoke
River from the perspective of Native
Americans and local watermen. Plus, the
National Trust for Historic Preservation
recently named Chestertown one of
“America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations,”
hailing the Revolutionary-era port community
as “a treasure hidden in plain sight.”
Around the Kent Narrows, partake in some
exceptional seafood dining. From there, visit
the Colonial Courthouse in Queenstown and
the 17th-century Wye Grist Mill.
9. TALK ABOUT TOWNS: Readers of James
Michener’s acclaimed novel Chesapeake
are already familiar with Oxford, the perfect
setting for bayside strolls and crab cake
dinners. But there’s also
Easton, the region’s
“Colonial Capital”
and one of its
cultural centers.
St. Michaels has
been recognized
in a national
magazine as
one of America’s
“most romantic”
towns, while Elkton
and Smith Island are also highly regarded
for their warmth — not to mention their
eco-friendliness.
Routes throughout the region trace the stories of
statesman Frederick Douglass and Underground Railroad
conductor Harriet Tubman. Tubman is the main focus of
the “FINDING A WAY TO FREEDOM” driving tour.
For a journey back in time to the War of 1812 era, visit such
destinations as QUEENSTOWN, where local militia in the Slippery Hill
area stood up to more than 300 British troops; and CENTREVILLE, where
American soldiers twice assembled to march against the enemy. Then there’s
ST. MICHAELS, which twice fended of attacks; look near the harbor for a private
residence nicknamed the Cannonball House because it was struck during a British
bombardment. In GEORGETOWN, the Kitty Knight House Inn is still standing today
because “Miss Kitty” convinced the British not to set it on fire while ransacking the
rest of the town.
To learn more about Maryland Marking America’s Milestones, please see the special
commemorative section inside this guide.

10. CRACK OPEN A CRAB: Journalist H.L.
Mencken described the Chesapeake Bay
area as a “great protein factory,” no doubt
smacking his lips as he said it. Sumptuous
steamed crabs, the world’s best crab cakes,
steamed mussels and oyster fritters are all on
the Eastern Shore menu. For a little something
to wash it all down, follow the Chesapeake
Wine Trail to two quaint family operations —
Cascia Vineyards on Kent Island and the farm-
based Cassinelli Winery & Vineyards near
Church Hill. Just north of Sudlersville is the
boutique-size Tilmon’s Island Winery.
11. TRY OUR SHOPPING ON FOR SIZE:
Explore outlet centers in Ocean City,
Perryville and Queenstown, and then follow
an Antiques Trail to find treasures of the
past on Kent Island, as well as in Stevensville,
Chester, Grasonville, Queenstown,
Chestertown, Sudlersville and Crumpton.
Local crafts are plentiful throughout the
Eastern Shore.
12. GET A GLIMPSE OF WHAT’S BEYOND
THE GREENS: Golfing on the Eastern Shore
is all about atmosphere. Putt for birdies as an
eagle soars overhead, walk a fairway while
deer watch from the woods, or navigate
around challenging sand hazards before
unwinding on a sandy beach. Challenging
course designs are a big reason several
venues have received top reviews from
Golf Digest and Golfweek.

MARKING MILESTONES::
Late in the War of 1812, about
1,500 British troops attacked and
took possession of the Southern
Maryland town of Leonardtown.
One force landed in barges at the
Leonardtown Wharf, which is now
part of a public park with a floating
launch for canoeing and kayaking.
Among the top bass-fishing areas
in America, the Potomac River has
also been designated as an American
Heritage River for its historical
significance. Invasion forces sailed up
the Potomac to attack Washington,
D.C., during the War of 1812, and the
Confederate Army twice crossed the
river in campaigns climaxing in the
battles of Antietam and Gettysburg.

Fishing & Boating
Abundant freshwater, bay and ocean fishing lures anglers to
all parts of Maryland. Chartering a boat allows you to tap into
the expertise of a knowledgeable captain, but public ramps and
convenient marinas are plentiful if you have your own craft.
WESTERN MARYLAND
Deep Creek Lake has a boat launch and
nearly 70 miles of shoreline to cast for trout,
walleye and bass; ice fishing is a popular
wintertime pursuit. Fly-fishing takes place
along six miles of the Youghiogheny River
between Hoyes Run and Gap Falls, while
the Savage River is a nationally acclaimed,
year-round trophy site for brook, brown and
rainbow trout. Trout fishing is also prized
among the rifes, deep runs and pocket
water of Casselman River, accessible via a
state park that features a century-old stone-
arch bridge on the Historic National Road.
CAPITAL REGION
Patuxent River State Park has largemouth
bass, pickerel and sunfish, as well as catch-
and-release trout. Big Hunting Creek, part
of Cunningham Falls State Park, is famous
among fly-fishers for catch-and-release
brook, brown and rainbow trout. Nearby
Little Hunting Creek, also popular for its
trout fishing, is nicknamed the “Stream of
Presidents” since many U.S. Heads of State
have cast a fly here when visiting Camp David.
CENTRAL MARYLAND
Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis
is the site of the closing ceremony for
EASTERN SHORE
Numerous fishing options are available
whether you turn toward the ocean or
bay. From the lighted Choptank River
Fishing Pier, which adjoins Sailwinds Park in
Cambridge, the variety of catches includes
perch, striped bass, sea trout and catfish.
At Assateague Island National Seashore,
both the back bay and surf provide
excellent opportunities for weakfish and
flounder. Croaker and sea trout are also
possibilities.
the Maryland Fishing Challenge, a six-
month-long, state-sponsored event with
recreational anglers seeking a specially
tagged striped bass named “Diamond Jim.”
Three reservoirs within the region — Liberty,
Loch Raven and Prettyboy — have bountiful
bass, crappie, yellow perch, bluegill and
catfish that can be caught from shore,
rowboat or kayak. Just below Prettyboy
Dam, the upper section of the Gunpowder
River is a blue-ribbon trout stream. Along
the shallow-water Susquehanna Flats fishery,
anglers arrive each spring to fish for striped
bass; access is available in Havre de Grace.

SOUTHERN MARYLAND
Smallwood State Park, a popular location
for national fishing tournaments, ofers
both boat slips and stationary piers at the
Sweden Point Marina. A 250-acre lake
within St. Mary’s River State Park is
legendary for its bass fishing, while another
state park, Point Lookout, invites anglers
to try for rockfish, hardhead or bluefish at
one of three fishing areas, including a 710-
foot pier. Night fishing passes are available,
though be warned: Point Lookout’s history,
which includes a stretch as a notorious
Civil War prison camp, has lent itself to
ghost stories.

There’s a lot to love in the
Heart of the Chesapeake.
DORCHESTER COUNTY
HEART OF THE CHESAPEAKE
TourDorchester.org
1.800.522.TOUR
Start planning your getaway at TourDorchester.org.
On Maryland’s Eastern
Shore, less than an hour
from the Chesapeake
Bay Bridge.
Why do people love Dorchester County on Maryland’s Eastern Shore?
We have the most shoreline of any county in the state—which means great
boating, paddling, and fishing. Our Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge
draws nature lovers from around the world. This is the birthplace of
Harriet Tubman, the Underground Railroad’s famed ‘conductor.’ Experience
the down-home, small-town charm that keeps visitors coming back.
