The "Mountain Side of Maryland"
Autumn is the perfect time to see Washington County, Maryland. Our Mountain Side Getaway was made for rest and relaxation. Taking your vacation or a long weekend here means fishing at the lake, playing golf at our many golf courses, lounging by the river, hiking and walking through picturesque scenery, camping, searching for that perfect antique, shopping at outlets and malls, or simply visiting the many historic attractions throughout the county.
Washington County, Maryland is full of quiet little charming towns and busier large ones too.
Ride aboard a steam-engine train through the mountains. Stop by a Civil War site -- Antietam National Battlefield is here. Venture out on the C&O Canal towpath. Take the kids camping at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park.
There's always plenty to do in Washington County, Maryland, no matter what the season, or you can just sit and enjoy the scenery doing nothing at all.
