Product Description

Book Description

  • Insider advice on the popular attractions, and hidden gems, from where to find the best crabcakes in Baltimore, to exploring the small towns on the Chesapeake Bay. Plus tips for planning your vacation “down the ocean” at Maryland and Delaware’s beach resorts.
  • Where to find the best fishing and crabbing, the best baseball (major and minor leagues), the best local seafood, and the best places to bag a bargain antiques shopping.
  • Insightful commentary on the historic past of Maryland and Delaware, from the American Revolution, through the Civil War to their different roles and changing environments today, with side trips to Harpers Ferry and Gettysburg.
  • Opinionated reviews. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. Our expert writers are passionate about their destinations--they tell it like it is in an engaging and helpful way.
  • Exact prices listed for every establishment and activity--no other guides offer such detailed, candid reviews of hotels and restaurants. We include the very best, but also emphasize moderately priced choices for real people.
  • User-friendly features including star ratings and special icons to point readers to great finds, excellent values, insider tips, best bets for kids, special moments, and overrated experiences.

The book's information about Western Maryland is great. Nov. 4 2008
By Grandma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My husband and I had a wonderful weekend exploring Western Maryland due to this book. We have driven through Western Maryland many times and nothing seemed to make us want to stop and explore the area. This book did. We saw beauty, found a wonderful place to eat and enjoyed some simple shopping.

Nice aid to trips to Maryland or Delaware Sept. 15 2012
By Steven A. Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Recently, I knew that I was going to spend a couple days in Baltimore. I ordered this volume to serve as an aid in planning things out. It turns out that this modest investment was quite worthwhile.

The book, given my specific interest, helped outline and organize the Baltimore visit. The summary of restaurants worth visiting by area was helpful. The attractions discussion helped orient the things that we did while in the Inner Harbor. The culminating event was a game at Camden Yards (what a great stadium) with the Orioles against the Yankees. A fine game!

And this rather slender volume helped make the time in Baltimore all the better. Recommended for those looking to explore Maryland and Delaware.

Great guide to Annapolis and Naval Academy Oct. 13 2013
By Grandpa Z - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This guide was extremely helpful. It identified Gibson's Lodging, which is a B&B just around the corner from the entrance to the Naval Academy. We planned on spending perhaps an hour at the Academy, however we enjoyed it so much that we spent the entire day. The B&B was also excellent.
