A Summer Weekend at Deep Creek Lake by Heidi Schlag

“We couldn’t leave Deep Creek without getting on the water! Fortunately, our hotel had kayaks for rent, but there are also rental shops dotting the lake. LakeFront Lodge is in a “no-wake-zone” cove, and the calm waters are perfect for paddling. We explored the marinas and vacation homes that lined our section of Deep Creek Lake, playing one of our favorite games: “Which House Do You Want?” (We aren’t that picky—we’d take any of them!)”

Hungry, Hon? Bring Your Appetite to Baltimore by Johnny Motley

“A compound misnomer worthy of “Holy Roman Empire,” lake trout, Baltimore’s favorite fried fish, is neither made of trout nor from a lake. Instead, lake trout usually comes from whiting—small, intensely flavored fish native to the Atlantic. This quintessential Baltimore dish, cousin to the New Orleans po’boy, usually comes with bread, pickles, and a generous hit of hot sauce. Head over to Faidley’s Seafood to tuck into a plate of some of the city’s best lake trout.”

Arts, Eats, and Outdoor Adventures in Prince George’s County by Dom Briana

“…begin your day by grabbing your coffee of choice from Vigilante Coffee followed by brunch at Busboys and Poets. If you have room for double the desserts, the sweet potato cake from DC Sweet Potato Cake and the banana pudding from Sugar Vault Desserts are both works of art.”

Like a Good Book, Inn Boonsboro Takes You Away by Stephanie Verni

Inn BoonsBoro was an indulgent delight. Each of the eight rooms has a literary theme based on famous romances that yielded happy endings, including characters such as Elizabeth and Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, Jane and Rochester from Jane Eyre, Titania, and Oberon from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and even Nora Roberts’ own two characters, Eve And Roark, from the In Death books under her other pen name J.D. Robb.”

An Ag-Cellent Oasis in Montgomery County by Chris Berger

“On steamy summer days, bathers take to the tree-shaded waters of Seneca Creek next to the Seneca Store. This popular swimming hole includes a rock-lined channel that whisks thrill-seeking tubers down the creek.”

A Tale of Two Marylands: How the Chesapeake Bay Bridge United the Free State by Thomas Schaller

“The Bridge replaced slower and costly boat ferries—or the equally cumbersome land routes around the Bay’s northern tip via Harford and Cecil counties—with a short, miraculous drive. Overnight, the Bridge facilitated the spending of a week, weekend or even a day trip to the Shore’s charming small towns and cities. On a good day, motorists from Baltimore or Washington can reach Kent Island within an hour. Small towns like Easton and Chestertown are but another 30 minutes beyond Stevensville’s eastern terminus.”

Live, Laugh, Loaf at These Popular Annapolis Bakeries by Susan Moynihan

“What should you order? Ask anyone in line, and they’ll have a different favorite. I’m partial to the thick, chewy focaccia and old-school oatmeal cream pies that would make Little Debbie hang up her rolling pin. Homemade sourdough amps up their avocado toast and breakfast sandwiches made with pecan-smoked bacon.”

5 Small Towns in Maryland Every History Lover Should Visit by Chelsea Milko

“As a newly fashioned Marylander, I’m always looking for a defining weekend experience that helps me connect to my new home. In my search, I’ve found that the small towns of the Old Line State provide everything my weekender soul is looking for: a historic town center, distinctive shopping and dining, and plenty of unique photo ops.”
