Ocean City ©
One of the country's favorite vacation resorts, Ocean City draws nearly 8 million visitors annually with its oceanfront boardwalk, clean beaches, and amusement parks.
Bring the kids along to Ocean City Beach and Ocean City Boardwalk. Step out of the city life by going to Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Waterskiing & Jetskiing. And it doesn't end there: glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, see the interesting displays at Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum, race across the water with a speed boat tour, and have some family-friendly fun at Ocean City Screams Haunted House.

Baltimore

Baltimore ©
A major center for tourism and travel, Baltimore is famous as the city where amateur poet Francis Scott Key wrote the lyrics for the United States' national anthem.
Kids will enjoy National Air and Space Museum and Betterton Beach. Get in touch with nature at Fort McHenry National Monument and C&O Canal Hike at Point of Rocks Boat Ramp. Change things up with these side-trips from Baltimore: National Gallery of Art (in Washington DC), Clue IQ: An Escape Room Experience (in Frederick) and Historical Society of Kent County (in Chestertown). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Walters Art Museum and learn about all things military at U.S. Naval Academy.
