Baltimore — 2 nights

City of Firsts

A major center for tourism and travel, Baltimore is famous as the city where amateur poet Francis Scott Key wrote the lyrics for the United States' national anthem.
Venture out of the city with trips to Annapolis (U.S. Naval Academy & Maryland State House). There's much more to do: try to win big at Horseshoe Casino, observe the fascinating underwater world at National Aquarium, sample the fine beverages at Sagamore Spirit Distillery, and wander the streets of Hampden.

For more things to do, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Baltimore attractions planner.

Washington to Baltimore is an approximately 2-hour car ride. In December, plan for daily highs up to 50°F, and evening lows to 37°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Ocean City.

The Old Line State
Perhaps best known as the birthplace of religious and political freedom in the United States, Maryland retains the spirit of colonial America, with stately 18th-century villages and historical landmarks. Although it's one of the nation's smallest states, there is no shortage of things to do here and you may find your itinerary fills up quickly. Make time in your vacation to tour Maryland's diverse landscape, which includes mountain peaks, picturesque Atlantic coastline, and the bustling city of Baltimore. Military buffs will enjoy touring the state's four Civil War Trails, where you can follow the footsteps of U.S. soldiers, or visiting the port city of Annapolis, home to the United States Naval Academy.
