The birthplace of religious freedom, the Southern region of Maryland is where settlers first stepped ashore in 1634 on land that has retained the charm of 300 years ago. Surrounded on three sides by water, this gorgeous area offers many miles of shoreline, rivers, and bays. The surrounding waters rule the lands and lives of those who live here. Long scenic drives will delight you with many wondrous creatures - bald eagles, blue heron, and barred owls to name a few. Fishing, canoeing, and fossil hunting are popular sports, and hiker-happy state parks offer thousands of acres of wilderness to explore. No matter what you choose to do, don’t leave the region before tasting its famous one-of-a-kind stuffed ham. But be careful - you may not want to leave this gentle land.
