Maryland Day Trips

We asked, you answered! When you want to get away for a day, where in the Old Line state do you go? Well, Maryland might be small, but there are plenty of beautiful places to spend a few hours. Our readers let us know on Facebook--now check out these day trip spots for yourself!

"I like to spend the day walking through historic downtown Chesapeake City. It's so pretty with the colorful houses, and then you can go out for a two hour boat ride."--Leah Meyer

Whether you're after a great crab dinner, a boat ride with the wind in your hair, or you just want to relax away from the hustle and bustle of Baltimore or Annapolis, Chesapeake City is the place to go. Of course, there are plenty of places to eat and shop for antiques or gifts if you're in the mood, but what could be better than just relaxing by the C&D canal?

"Salisbury Zoo! It's right down the road, sooo, lol."--Ashley Anderson

The Salisbury Zoo is perfect for families on their way home from Ocean City--or just for a day trip around the Eastern Shore area. Come meet parrots, bison, sloths and more, without the long, traffic-filled drive into Washington, DC. You can even do yoga at the zoo!

"Try Baugher's Farm on route 140 north of Westminster."--Dorothy Patterson

Want to pick your own fruit and veggies? Right now, you can pick cherries, sweet peas, and peaches at Baugher's Farm, and if you visit in the fall, you can pick your pumpkins to carve for Halloween. You can also pick up apple cider, local honey or a delicious fruit pie. And if you're looking for a sit-down meal, there's a full restaurant, too!

"Assateague national beach,MD."--Danielle Nicole Herring

The ponies of Assateague are famous all over the country, and they're easy to spot while you're camping, kayaking, fishing, hiking or doing any of the other fun activities the beach has to offer. And don't miss the wild pony swim on July 29 this year!
