Packing a lot into a small Midatlantic package, it offers urbanity (Baltimore, DC bedroom communities Rockville & Bethesda), beach resorts (Ocean City), quaint Chesapeake bay towns, and one of America's prettier state capitals, Annapolis.

  • Delighted to be joining this group. I'm now blogging for Chesapeake Life Magazine, with Delmarva Drives. That's also the name of my website:
    www.delmarvasdrives.com. It's a work in progress, an on-line resource for all activities, culture, and food in Southern Delaware and the Eastern Shores of Maryland & Virginia.
  • Maryland, my Maryland. What a beautiful state, and it is my pleasure to bring getaway ideas in Maryland the other Mid-Atlantic states to our followers at www.tripsandgetaways.com.
  • Just heard from my pal Mark over at Hilton Hotels about a deal that might make baseball fans perk up a bit. How many hotels can you think of with literally a front-row seat at a Major League stadium? The gym and plenty of the 757 rooms at the fancy new Hilton Baltimore, which opened last August, have bird's-eye views of the field at Camden Yards right next door -- equivalent to rooftop viewing but better because the views are unobstructed. So during its first ball season, now through October 4 (now just under 40 Orioles home games), management's trying to leverage this by offering a discount "Room With a View" package: $229 gets four people (family, pals, two couples, whatever) a room to share and watch the game from, plus breakfast and tickets to the Sports Legends Museum. Sounds kinda cool, actually, even if the Orioles are off to a sucky start this season -- it's still early days, folks. And you can always time it to when your home team's in town, right?

Antrim 1844 & Ladew Topiary Gardens in 'Spring Has Sprung & U.S. Gardens Await Discovery'

Spring is here, and summer's already around the corner!  If you’re a flower gardener - and the National Gardening Association estimates that members of over a third of U.S. households are - you already may have begun to till soil and plant seeds. And those who like to travel as well as garden (as well as those who enjoy gardens more by watching than working), now is time to plan a trip to take in some of Mother Nature’s bountiful beauty. Gardens come in a variety of types, sizes and offerings.…

Asseategue Island cited as one of USA's best surfing spots

Here are five of the best, should your travels take you there (with at least three in driving distance of another NÜ…

Stellar stay at the Commander Hotel in Ocean City

NotyourbroomOcean City is a resort town on a barrier island off a stretch of southern Maryland coast, featuring miles of beach; a wooden boardwalk lined with restaurants, shops, theme-park attractions, and quite a few hotels. So on a recent visit with my daughter, we had a lot to choose from. We bypassed the chain properties in favor of a cherished local independent, the Commander. And I'm so glad we did.read complete post
