Editorial: Maryland's Winters
I was born in Virginia. I moved to Maryland when I was 9 years old. Of course, I still have family in Virginia, so I visit often. I can honestly say that Maryland's winters are absolutely beautiful. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Maryland is a state that has tons to do whether it is spring, summer, autumn, or winter. There's always something to do in this beautiful state.
The cold weather usually causes people to stay indoors. Change that this winter - get outside! Parks, museums, and antique shops are always open. Grab the family and head to the battlefields or drive along Maryland's picturesque country roads.
Hiking is always fun and doing so in the winter is extraordinarily exquisite. The scenic views take your breath away.
Gourmet dining is just right no matter the season, and taking in history is always available to those who take interest.
With winter look at all the extra things you get to do - sled riding, snowboarding, tubing, skiing, making snowmen, throwing snowballs, and snowmobiling.
