15 Best Small Towns to Visit in Maryland

Maryland, one of the original thirteen colonies, is a Mid-Atlantic state with beautiful coastlines along the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. With small towns located both along the seaside and the sprawling countryside, Maryland is steeped in colonial history just waiting to be explored. Take some time away from Baltimore and the major city attractions and experience small-town Maryland – sometimes you’ll even feel like you’ve gone back in time and are experiencing US History in person! You’ll both learn and have fun at the same time while you sample the good food and drink that these towns have to offer, or jet off into the sunset on an exciting boat tour.
