It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like the Holidays

There’s no time like the holidays in Maryland with Thanksgiving parades, train gardens, Christmas lights, seasonal concerts, performances, and that always-warm Maryland welcome. Don’t miss annual favorites like Gaylord National Harbor’s ICE! Extravaganza, this year featuring “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” an expanded Christmas Village in Baltimore Harbor now featuring yuletide beer tastings, and Six Flags America's Holiday in the Park. Find all this and much more on our Holiday Happenings Roundup Page.

Book Your Maryland ‘Home for the Holidays’ Hotel Package Now

This year, make your holiday visit home one to remember. But you’ll remember the family, the friends, the presents and the food, instead of Grandma’s snoring or grabbing Charlie’s false teeth instead of the snooze button with a “Home for the Holidays” hotel package. So if you want a mint on your pillow instead of a holiday present from your sister’s cat, get all the family time you want, and all the relaxation you need with great deals across Maryland here on our Home for the Holidays page.

Get Ahead of the Game With a Maryland Shopping Safari

We all know Christmas is just around the corner. Soon, the parking lots will be packed, but if you get ahead of the action, you can plan a Maryland shopping safari and beat the rush. Check out Maryland’s unique boutique Main Street shopping here. Give the gift of art, browse the Maryland State Arts Council Artist Registry here. This year, give the gift of Maryland!

Find Your November Adventure Along Maryland’s Scenic Byways

With Maryland's 18 Scenic Byways, you can follow carefully mapped driving routes into areas rich with beauty, history and culture, with plenty to see and do along the way. Themed tours take you through mountain passes once traveled by pioneers in Conestoga wagons; follow city streets in grand and fashionable Central Maryland cities; incorporate some of the most interesting neighborhoods bordering our nation's capital; wind along country roads in Southern Maryland; and make new discoveries on the peaceful shores of the Chesapeake Bay. So relax, take your time and enjoy the many wonders that await you along Maryland’s Scenic Byways.
