Don’t let the rest of your holiday break go to waste! Hit the road for one of these must-try adventures in Maryland:
Have a mom-approved skydiving experience at iFly
Head to iFly Indoor Skydiving in Gaithersburg for a thrilling adventure! You’ll attend a training class and get suited up before heading into the wind tunnel for 60 seconds of one-on-one flight time with your instructor. The rest of your party can watch you while waiting their turn. Purchase a video of your flight to remember it forever! (Keep the fun going with this road trip from Bethesda to Hagerstown.)
Race your heart out at the Autobahn Indoor Speedway
Buckle your seatbelts! Autobahn Indoor Speedway offers European-style go-karting with Grand Prix-style tracks and Italian pro-style go-karts that can reach up to 50 MPH!
This large, state-of-the-art facility is indoors and climate-controlled, allowing you to get your race on regardless of the weather. With two locations in White Marsh and Jessup, Autobahn is a great option for all go-kart lovers. (It even made our list of road trips to take with teenagers!)
Touch sea creatures at the National Aquarium
The interactive Living Seashore: Mid-Atlantic exhibit at the National Aquarium in Baltimore is a must-visit. Dip your hands into touch tanks housing horseshoe crabs, clearnose skates, and luminous moon jellyfish!
The aquarium offers a range of diversity with its habitat exhibits: from the Amazon River; to rare Australian finds; to a conservatory-style Tropical Rainforests housing impressive plants and exotic birds; to underwater Dolphin tanks and stadium shows; to a Jellies Invasion room where an additional 9 species of jellyfish are on display.
