One of the best ways to get to know a state is through its visitor centers. Oftentimes these miniature museums offer a glimpse into the local history, culture, and ecosystems that cannot be obtained anywhere else. Fortunately, if you happen to find yourself in Howard County, Maryland, Robinson Nature Center is no exception. The nature center itself has a wealth of information on all kinds of topics, with interactive and extensive dioramas that replicate an entire forest frozen in time. Add to that the miles of trails and the pre-industrial ruins that can be found on the grounds and you’re sure to want to spend a day wandering here!
