Don’t miss out on a weekend in this exciting city for a lesson in love of country you’ll never forget.
Baltimoreans live in a perfect location to visit the beautiful countryside of Dutch Country, home to a large Amish community and plenty of not-to-be-missed activities. Lancaster County, Penn., is a quick 90-minute drive up I-83. Many take advantage of their close proximity by taking day trips to visit museums, the area’s myriad festivals and learning about Amish life. Being able to visit for the day is great, but making a weekend getaway of it will let you truly see everything Lancaster County towns have to offer.
No summer is complete without a visit to Maryland’s most popular beach. Ocean City is truly a destination that comes with its own culture and rules, but for most every visitor it all comes down to having fun and eating some of the best seafood around. It is also a long-standing favorite for Senior Week, so be cautious planning trips during the first two weeks of June to avoid over-crowded beaches.
