Summer's Can't-Miss Events
In Maryland the celebration of summer is going strong through Labor Day weekend!
There is plenty of time to set sail on the Chesapeake Bay, build sandcastles in Ocean City, ride the roller coasters at Six Flags America, and get into a mountain of steamed crabs—that’s just a taste of summer in Maryland! Cool off in the mountain-fed waters of Deep Creek Lake, stroll the boardwalk at National Harbor, see an outdoor movie in Baltimore’s Little Italy, and find the perfect ice cream cone along Maryland’s Ice Cream Trail. Catch a game at Camden Yards then road trip to all six of Maryland’s minor league parks. In Maryland, your summer’s only limit is your imagination!
