Do you love strolling along charming Main Streets? You’re in luck. Maryland has quite a few towns with festive Main Streets and downtown areas. Here are 12 of them that are perfect for exploring during the holiday season.
1. Ellicott City
Ellicott City's Main Street has come a long way since the July 30th flood. Dozens of stores have re-opened and holiday sales are underway. Check out the festive window displays this month.
2. St. Michaels
This waterside town is full of holiday cheer. Head downtown to explore the restaurants, shops, and charmingly decorated storefronts.
While Frederick's Main Street area is delightful year-round, it truly comes to life during Christmastime. Twinkling lights line the street while the local shops look warm and inviting.
This cool small town is even cooler during the holiday season. Main Street is fabulously festive with events galore.
Maryland's capital is nothing short of magical during the month of December. Jolly wreaths and garlands of greenery line the town, making for an enchanting stroll.
If you've still got a lot of holiday shopping to do, head to Cumberland's Historic District. Drop a letter in Santa's mailbox and peruse the local Christmas decor.
This quaint mountain town is lit up with holiday lights and hosts a couple of festive events through the season.
Downtown Westminster hosts a tree lighting, holiday house tour, and more. Check out this small town with big pride.
Streetlights are wrapped with garland and tinsel, while the massive town tree serves as a holiday centerpiece. It's a pretty spot to get into the Christmas spirit.
If you're up for a more bustling spot, head to Bethesda Row. This charming little area is filled with shops and the decorations are beautiful.
11. Silver Spring
You could spend an entire day perusing all the stores and restaurants in downtown Silver Spring. Plus, who doesn't love carolers?
12. National Harbor
We saved the most grand downtown area for last. National Harbor's Christmas tree is gigantic and oh so bright.
