Two little states. A prospective visitor might think it would be easy to see either one in just a few days. But a leisurely pace is best for this "Land of Pleasant Living." How much time do you have? How much driving do you want to do? You could come by boat, but most visitors do best with a car when exploring Maryland and Delaware. It's the only way to see the Brandywine Valley or Western Maryland.

So, what are your interests? In a week, you could see the highlights of Maryland or the attractions of the state's Eastern Shore, along with a glimpse of Delaware. But you'll have to make some choices about what to see.

Civil War buffs will want to include a visit to Baltimore with trips to the battlefields around Frederick. Wine lovers might like to plan a weekend to see local wineries, enjoy the seafood, and experience a little culture. History fans should consider taking a walk on the path to freedom trod by slaves on the Underground Railroad. And outdoorsy types, you're in for a treat: Hiking, skiing, fly-fishing, and kayaking await.
