You'll find interesting sights, wonderful Amish shopping, and great food in Lancaster and Hershey, Pennsylvania, both of which are about 89 miles from Baltimore. If you are a history buff, you won't want to miss the exceptional historical sites in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (56 miles) and Washington, D.C. (40 miles).
Just about 50 miles away is Frederick, Maryland and the National Museum of Civil War Medicine, 48 E Patrick St., 301-695-1864. As you tour this 3-story pre-Civil War brick building you'll see some of Gordon Dammann's 3,000 object medical artifact collection, the unforgettable photos that make up the Wall of Wounded, and four galleries divided into "Recruiting-the Army Camp," "The Army Battle," "Caring for the Sick and Wounded," and "The Role of the Home Front."
Though further away, a visit to Ocean City, 4001 Coastal Highway, Ocean City, MD 21841, 800-626-2326, 410-289-2800, will give you a chance to experience Maryland's eastern shore. Here you can play at the two amusement parks, stroll the board walk, run along ten miles of public beach, dine at great seafood buffets, and try to catch one of the marlins or sharks just waiting to challenge your skills. Also nearby is Assateague Island with its wild ponies, blue crabs, good fishing, bird watching, more natural beaches, and lots of mosquitoes.
