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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bethany Beach and Cape May Lighthouse. Step out of the city life by going to Cape Henlopen State Park and Cape May City Beaches. Take a break from Ocean City with a short trip to Wildwood Beach in Wildwood, about 1h 20 min away. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Ocean City Beach and take a leisurely stroll along Ocean City Boardwalk.

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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Gettysburg Museum of History and Jennie Wade House. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Gettysburg National Cemetery and Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Change things up with these side-trips from Baltimore: Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly), Korean War Veterans Memorial (in Washington DC) and The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (in Arlington). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Fort McHenry National Monument, explore and take pictures at Gettysburg National Military Park, and get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center.

To find maps, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Baltimore trip itinerary maker tool .

Traveling by car from Ocean City to Baltimore takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 89°F in July, and nighttime lows around 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
