These 10 Lakes In Maryland Are Picture-Perfect For An Autumn Day Trip

Did you know that every single one of Maryland’s lakes are man-made? Even though we don’t have any natural lakes, that doesn’t make them any less beautiful. These 10 are always worth visiting, especially during autumn. Throw on a hoodie and sneakers, and have a great time exploring these local, fall foliage – infused lakes.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
