The Best Ways to Celebrate Maryland Day

The Best Ways to Celebrate Maryland Day

With the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak around the globe, this month’s Maryland Day may look a little different than previous years. But one fact remains – there’s no better way to celebrate the statewide holiday than visiting your favorite spots around the state. From the mountains to the Eastern Shore, Maryland has something to offer everyone looking to explore the great outdoors.

State parks and recreational spaces currently remain open to the public, so if you need to escape the house for a little bit of fresh air, here are some of our favorite places to soak in the sun while practicing social distancing. And if you need to postpone your Maryland Day adventure until this summer, that’s okay! These places will be here waiting for you in the months to come.

Disclaimer: If you are sick, please remain home in quarantine! We all need to do our part to lessen the spread of the virus. Be sure to avoid crowds and keep those hands clean!

 

Sandy Point State Park

Like the look? Buy the Pink & Yellow crab tee here.


Escape the crowd and enjoy a day overlooking the Chesapeake Bay at Sandy Point State Park. Located near Annapolis, the park is accessible year-round for a quick getaway during the week. Whether you plan on fishing, boating, or sitting on the beach and watching the waves, we love the feel of these sandy shores and water views.

Kilgore Falls

Like the look? Buy the Ravens & Bohs tank here.

Keeping in line with the outdoor theme, have you ever been to Rocks State Park? The Pylesville destination is home to Kilgore Falls, a waterfall known as Maryland’s second highest vertical drop waterfall at 17 feet high. The waterfall area has a beautiful hiking trail, but if you plan to visit, be sure to arrive in Harford County early. The park has very limited parking and fills up quickly as the weather gets warmer.

 

 

Baltimore

Mr. Boh always knows best. Buy the look here.

While restaurants and bars may currently be closed, Baltimore offers plenty of outdoor activities away from the crowds. Take advantage of the historical sites and paths, green spaces like Federal Hill Park, or walk along the waterfront and check out boats and the wildlife. Check out this list of suggested outdoor activities in the area.

 

 

Ocean City

Get your summer bod ready – buy Maryland-themed swimsuits.

Summer isn’t in full swing yet, but let this photo serve as a reminder of how amazing Ocean City can be at the beginning of the season. The sun, the sand, the smaller-than-usual crowds, and the relaxing feeling with your family and friends by your side. You can still hit the beach now to get ready for the warmer weather – just be sure to bundle up and go during off-hours to avoid other groups/visitors! Plan your summer vaca now.
