Overview

Welcome to Maryland-- "America in miniature". From flat tidewater marshes to rolling foothills to mountains, Maryland embraces all that is America, historically, culturally, and geographically.

In its revised edition, "The Pelican Guide to Maryland" makes it even easier to plan a trip to a particular locale of the state. Authors Victor Block and Fyllis Hockman provide historical background for each area, with counties and attractions outlined in detail. Helpful directions and phone numbers are included.

Visit the Old Line State's tranquil stretches of beaches, rustic campsites, and unsurpassed hunting and fishing with "The Pelican Guide to Maryland" in hand. Each chapter highlights both well-known and less familiar sights: quaint old churches and government halls, the U.S. Naval Academy, Baltimore's exciting Inner Harbor, and Pimlico Race Course, home of horse racing's Preakness Stakes. A separate chapter features four of Maryland's unique attractions: the Chesapeake Bay, the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, the National Road, and the Mason-Dixon Line. A calendar of annual events completes this comprehensive guide.
