Maryland is really nice, there are a lot of things to do within Annapolis also, since it is a historical place. There are things such as museums to visit about Annapolis and the water in Downtown. Its such a scenic place and it is very pretty. Also, it is close to Washington, DC, so you can go out about 30+ mins to DC and go to other museums and walk around DC.

I love to go to Maryland City, it feels very family orientated, and all the history of the buildings and surrounding parks are refreshing. Baltimore as a whole is an entity all its own. The people are unique and have a very keen sense of style and flavor. The various cultures that make up Baltimore are fantastic and exciting at the same time. You can go from one part of the city to the next and feel like you have entered a different place in time. The Baltimore Harbor is one of my favorite places to visit, seeing all the people and the energy that it brings is intriguing.
I love Maryland, there are so many opportunities around. During junior year, the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) event was in Baltimore. I got the chance to compete at the National level.
