What are some of the must-visit historic places in Maryland?

As one of the original 13 colonies, Maryland has quite a long history and, therefore, plenty of historical places to visit. Fort McHenry in Baltimore is always worth a visit. It was here that Francis Scott Key found inspiration for “The Star-Spangled Banner” and it served as a hospital during the Civil War. St. Mary’s City served as the state’s first European settlement and is now a living history museum. Visitors can get a feel of what it was like for the first colonists by exploring the community on a day trip.
