Hello Marylanders-

I would just like to take the time to tell you all that I found your state to be absolutely BEAUTIFUL on a recent trip there. I perused areas around Washington DC, Baltimore, Waldorf (?), and St. Charles (?) and we were just taken aback by the raw beauty of Maryland. You certainly live in a gem of a state!

Nice that you thought that it was beautiful. So few people can appreciate the "America in Miniature" state. My parents are from Hartford, and CT definitely has some nice spots as well.

We actually got lost taking a detour from the highway, and we ended up exploring the Maryland countryside near St. Charles, I do believe it was. We were going to turn around, but we decided to see where the road led us. I haven't seen scenery like that in all my life, just beautiful! Just miles of open land, rolling hills, beautiful trees, tall grasses. We saw some water as well, I don't know if this would be the Chesapeake or not, but it was magnificent. Also, we found that wherever we were in Maryland we were never far from water, which is beautiful to us. Coming from Connecticut (where the beach is never far) we were thoroughly impressed with your water access, and those stunning vistas. I could ramble on and on about how delighted we were to find such a scenic state as Maryland, but I'll save you the boredom! I'll be looking forward to my next trip there!

Sometimes folks don't know how nice they have it. It is hard to find the beauty of Maryland with all of the urban sprawl around Baltimore/DC but it is definitely there. Get off the highway and enjoy Maryland's lesser roads and it is found in abundance. I am always amazed when I travel north of Baltimore and take lesser-known roads to find forest and rich farmland with rolling hills. Whenever I take some time to travel Maryland sans highway, the beauty is always a rich reward.

Amen.

I have one or two urban hangouts I like to enjoy, and the rest of the time I avoid the DC sprawl like the plague. The remainder of the state is drop-dead gorgeous, with an amazing amount of geographical diversity for such a small place.
