1. Deep Creek Lake
Maryland's largest lake is great to visit year-round, depending on your preference. There are a variety of cabins available to rent in the area, from rustic one-room cabins to extravagant waterfront log homes. Bring your hiking boots, because there's much to explore.

Everyone loves Maryland's most well-known beach and it's not hard to see why. The area attractions are vast, from arcades to seafood restaurants and carnival rides. Fun for the whole family.
Maryland's capital city is a charming waterfront spot with a plethora of things to do. The boutiques are plenty and the restaurants are delicious. A nautical weekend is in store!
Charm City is perfect for a weekend trip, no matter your interests. The National Aquarium is one of the top rated aquariums in the US. Be sure to also check out the Maryland Zoo, Lexington Market for a superb crab cake, or simply stroll the harbor.
5. St. Michaels
It's impossible not to love the town of St. Michaels and a weekend trip to this spot is perfect for a bit of relaxation. Those who love to shop will also love the charming store fronts, and make sure to grab some ice cream from Justine's as well. So good!
6. Assateague Island
Most people know the wild horse infused Assateague Island as a day trip destination, but you can actually campout right on the beach! Be sure to book reservations early because this gorgeous slice of paradise fills up quick. Enjoy your weekend full of sand, wildlife, and stargazing.
7. Frontier Town
Just a short drive away from Assateague is the quirky campground known as Frontier Town. This spot offers wild west shows, a water park complete with a lazy river, treetop adventures, and more. It's the highlight of summer for many area families.
8. Six Flags America
The number of rides at Six Flags America is impressive and especially so during summer. The water slides alone are worth the trip and some families make an entire weekend of it.
9. National Harbor
The National Harbor has grown so much in the last decade and people are starting to take notice. Book a night at one of the ritzy area hotels and spend the day exploring the shops, restaurants, and bars. Lastly, take a ride on the Capital Wheel for a view to remember.
