The most visited attractions in Maryland

According to a poll attractions in Maryland are mainly historical and architectural, but according to my humble opinion of load which I visited, the nature is very nice. I suggest you start walking from Ocean City.

The long narrow strip, which is located from north to south formed peninsula, which is very built up with hotels and amusement parks. Population during the summer months increased significantly, reaching 8 million tourists.

Stroll the longest "Atlantic Avenue" - a promenade in Ocean City built in 1902 or visit Amusement Park Rides Trimper. For those of you who love the sea we offer a nice holiday on the long sandy beach at which trees become scarcer. Bookmark and Share
