February is the perfect time to unplug and reconnect with those you love. And the things that you love to do. Plan a romantic getaway to one of the state's many B&Bs. Enjoy a great meal during one of the state's restaurant weeks. Embrace Maryland's rich African-American heritage. Head inside to one of the state's many museums to discover great works of art from decoys to Matisse to whirligigs. Warm to the season and head outside to downhill or cross country ski, snowshoe, hike or take a horse-drawn sleigh ride.
