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.

Other cities/towns: Ocean City( Barbara Haddock Taylor, Baltimore Sun / May 26, 2010 )
Stretching 10 miles from the Inlet to the Delaware state line, this beach town is the destination for many a weekend getaway. The three-mile boardwalk offers food, shopping and games, and visitors can always find places to stay in one of the 9,500 hotel rooms or 21,000 condominiums in Ocean City. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge, opened in 1952, provides direct access from Baltimore and Washington. Visitors can indulge in Thrasher's French Fries, sticky caramel popcorn and sweet saltwater taffy at one of the many food stands around the beach and learn about the history of Ocean City at the Life-Saving Station Museum. --Rachel Martin
