100 Maryland places, attractions and landmarks [Pictures]
From the beaches of Ocean City in the east to the Appalachian Mountains in the west, from the rolling hills of My Lady's Manor (home to Maryland's steeplechase races) in the north to the tidewater marshlands of the Chesapeake Bay to the south -- Maryland has a little bit of everything. And we're not just talking geography, either. With attractions that run the gamut from the 17th-century Colonial settlement of St. Mary's City to the 21st-century wonders on display at the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore, Maryland offers its residents -- and visitors -- a wide variety of places to visit.

Attractions: Go Ape( Handout / October 5, 2011 )
Located in Rock Creek Regional Park in Rockville, Go Ape offers tree-top obstacles, Tarzan swings and the longest zip lines in Maryland. The course takes two-to-three hours to complete and is not for the weak or lazy. Participants are equipped with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners and are given a 30-minute safety lesson before they embark on their adventure, completed at their own pace. This is a good team-building or family-bonding exercise.
