Overview

This thoroughly updated edition is the most comprehensive guide to Maryland.

Author Leonard Adkins has combed the state for the best of the best- and least-known attractions in this completely updated guide to Maryland. Explore unpretentious fishing villages on the Eastern Shore where time has stood still—or at least slowed down considerably; wander through 17th- and 18th-century mansions, mines, and mills of the southern region; lose yourself in the wilds of Maryland's northwestern mountains and rivers; and take in some of the finest museums, shops, and cultural centers in the bustling urban hubs and historic villages.

This comprehensive guide offers refreshingly opinionated recommendations for places to eat, stay, and visit that accommodate every travel style and budget. Thirty-four detailed maps and an alphabetical "What's Where" subject guide aid in travel planning. Hundreds of dining reviews tell you where to find the quintessential crab feast or the finest five-star restaurant, as well as inns, B&Bs, hotels, and vacation cottages. 75 black & white photographs, 23 maps, index.
