Saying goodbye to Maryland is never easy, sometimes even for the dead. From the alleyways of old Annapolis to the frontier graves of Frederick and the battlefields of Antietam and Monocracy to the bones of Edgar Allan Poe, The Old Line State has spent nearly 400 years collecting her ghosts. Those restless spirits and their stories are out there, waiting to be uncovered.
For those who prefer less creepy fun, check out these vibrant festivals that celebrate autumn.
