A Natural Wonder In Two States, Great Falls In Maryland And Virginia Is Truly Spectacular
By Megan Shute|Published September 20, 2023
With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
Scattered across the state from the Eastern shore to the Appalachian Mountains in the west, Maryland is home to countless hidden — and not-so-hidden — natural wonders, and we can’t wait to explore one of our new favorites with you today.
When we moved to the state two years ago, I immediately started compiling my Maryland bucket list, with visits to places like the charming capital city of Annapolis and Assateague Island — where wild horses run free — and recently made my way to one of many natural wonders on the list: Great Falls.
For more information about both the Maryland and Virginia parks, visit the National Park Service website.
