5 Incredible Day Trips You Can Take From Baltimore By Train
We love Baltimore but sometimes it’s good to get outside of the city and explore our surroundings, and beyond. The following five spots are reachable by train from Baltimore’s Penn Station, all clocking in under 3.5 hours of travel time. If it’s a day trip away you seek, then read on…
1. Ocean City, MD
Maryland's favorite vacation destination is also close enough for a day trip. Leave early in the morning and the 3.5 hours of travel time will be over before you know it. Pack your day full of the beach, seafood, and a boardwalk stroll before heading back that evening.
2. Washington DC
The nation's capital is a mere 50 minute train ride away. History awaits the museums, monuments, and landmarks. What an educational yet beautiful way to spend a Saturday.
3. Harpers Ferry, WV
If you've never visited Harpers Ferry then do yourself a favorite and go! This historic town is speckled with charming old homes and the water views along the Potomac River are extraordinary. We highly recommend this spot in the fall to witness the colorful foliage.
4. Philadelphia, PA
For some reason I always assume Philadelphia is further away than it really is. In fact, a train ride here from Baltimore is a little over an hour. This city is seeped in history and the architecture alone is worth the trip.
5. New York, NY
America's favorite city can be reached in only 2.5 hours by train! The best part is that by taking the train, you won't have to deal with the insane NYC traffic. Whether you head here for a Broadway show or simply to shop around, you can easily make this a day trip.
