movers marylandMaryland is a beautiful place to move to and no matter where you’re going to be residing, there are many great places to visit once you’re settled.  With the Chesapeake Bay, Potomac River and Atlantic Ocean all making up part of Maryland’s geography, there are a lot of scenic areas to visit along one of these waterways.   Many of Maryland’s towns have been the site of historical events and these towns have kept their historic charm, making them great places to visit.

The Eastern Shore is a go-to destination for many travelers during the warmer months because it’s made up of waterfront towns and beaches.  Ocean City, which is located along the Atlantic coast of Maryland, is the most popular of the Eastern Shore destinations as it boasts ten miles of white sand beaches, a three-mile boardwalk, family-friendly attractions, and an abundance of restaurants.  If you want to go to a less crowded portion of the Eastern Shore, towns like Kent Island, Salisbury, and St. Michaels are some of the smaller areas along the Chesapeake Bay that give you quaint little towns. These and other towns provide visitors with museums, boat charters, bed and breakfasts, and local shopping.

Annapolis, the state capital, is located along the Chesapeake and is home to many historical attractions and scenery.  Throughout the city there are an array of museums such as the Annapolis Maritime Museum, Chesapeake Children’s Museum, Banneker-Douglass Museum (African American), Charles Carroll House (first Attorney General), and the William Paca House and Garden (Declaration of Independence signer and former governor).  If museums are not your thing, take a stroll down Main Street and pop in to the many boutiques that line the street or have lunch at one of the many restaurants you’ll walk by.  At the Annapolis City Dock, located at the end of Main Street, take a look at the high-end yachts tied up or watch sailboats sail by. The dock is home to many parades and festivals as well as the annual Boat Shows each fall which draw people from all over the world.

If you’re an outdoorsman, Deep Creek Lake is a place you’ll want to check out.  Located in the far western part of Maryland’s panhandle, Deep Creek Lake borders West Virginia and Pennsylvania.  For the adventurous type, Deep Creek Lake offers a variety of activities such as whitewater rafting, ATVs, rock climbing, hiking, snowmobiles, snowshoeing and skiing.  If you’re looking for a more relaxed visit, try fishing, golf, horseback riding, visiting historic sites, snowshoeing or riding on a dogsled. Whatever your Deep Creek Lake desire, you can be sure to count on beautiful mountain and lake views.

These are just some of the many great places to visit when you move to Maryland.  The scenic views, historic sites and museums found throughout the state provide something for everyone.   Maryland’s slogan says it all, “If you’re looking for a merry land, go to Maryland!”
