What are some of the best winter day trips in Maryland?

There is an abundance of winter day trips in Maryland for you to explore! Don’t stay indoors and hibernate all winter - there’s so much to discover even when it’s cold outside! The winter months bring fewer crowds and a different perspective to many places around the state. For a few examples, why not consider:

  • Try winter horseback riding with Circle R Ranch in Oakland
  • You can also take a walk alongside the C & O Canal which may have frozen water during your visit. It’s quite lovely this time of year.
  • You can even explore Rocky Gap State Park in western Maryland which turns into a winter wonderland.

Are there any ski resorts in Maryland?

Wisp Resort is the one and only ski resort in Maryland, and we are okay with that. It provides a pretty epic place for skiing, snowboarding, tubing, and more. You can even find lodging at Wisp if you would like to spend a few days out in the snow.
