Summer is here! Why not cool off with a family trip to one of Maryland's many amazing beaches or waterways? We've put together a guide of beaches all over Maryland.

You can go fishing, hiking, cycling, kayaking, even horseback riding and observe the majestic wildlife. You can play in the sand, build sand castles, jump in the waves, collect shells and beach glass-and burn off all that extra energy. Pack up a picnic, grab your sunblock, towels, and sand toys and head on out for an adventure in the sun!
