13 Undeniable Differences Between The Eastern And Western Parts Of Maryland
For a smaller state, Maryland sure does have vast differences between its regions. Take a look how the eastern and western parts of the state differ from one another. It’s almost as if they’re two totally different places!
1. You can expect beachy views in eastern Maryland...
And mountainous sights in the west.
2. Eastern Maryland has the state's lowest point, known as Bloody Point Hole in the bottom of the bay.
And western Maryland has the highest point, called Hoye Crest on Backbone Mountain.
3. Breakfast in Maryland's eastern portion is known to get a bit crabby.
And it's scrapple for the win in western counties.
4. Most water views in the east consist of peaceful wetlands.
And in the west, expect to see large lakes surrounded by hills and mountains.
5. Eastern Maryland is probably rooting for the Ravens.
And in the west, you'll be surprised to find an abundance of Steelers fans.
6. This is considered an ideal catch around the eastern shore.
But the hunt is on for larger game in western Maryland.
7. Winter sports in the east are somewhat unconventional.
And it's classics like skiing, snowboarding, and tubing in the western mountains.
8. Summer vacation is a no-brainer when Ocean City is on the east coast.
But in the west, Deep Creek Lake is a popular choice among warmer months.
9. Small towns along the eastern shore are filled with boardwalks, boats, and water views.
And small towns in the west are proud of their surrounding mountains and railroad history.
10. You'll spot a lot of Wawa convenience stores when driving through the east.
And in western Maryland, it's all about Sheetz.
11. Winter hits all of Maryland, even freezing over parts of the Chespeake Bay.
But the coldest town in the entire state is located in western Maryland.
12. There's no accent like an eastern shore accent. "You goin' downy oshun?"
Western Marylanders may speak with a country accent, sprinkled with hints of southern flare.
13. The east's major attraction is pretty stupendous.
But don't count out western Maryland's most majestic spot. WOW.
