TOP 5 WEEKEND GETAWAYS IN MARYLAND, PART II
Getting tired of the everyday drag and looking to escape this weekend? The second ranked place on USA Today’s top five getaways in Maryland is Deep Creek Lake. This is a weekend getaway for that outdoorsy adventure type. Looking for something a little more laid back maybe sit by the beach all day? Check out our last getaway to Ocean City here. Deep Creek Lake is located in the mountains of western Maryland and is just a few hours from Washington D.C., Baltimore, Morgantown and Pittsburgh.
Deep Creek Lake is Maryland’s largest freshwater lake, sporting 3,900 acres of water and 65 miles of shoreline. During the summer the weather is beautiful and warm during the day, however at night a small campfire is enough to roast marshmallows and keep the summer night chill away. There is tons of activities for everyone in the family. Go fishing, tubing or simply enjoy a boat ride around the lake. There are also hundreds of trails to hike through that show off the gorgeous scenery that Deep Creek has to offer. Stay in a hotel, rent a condo or cabin by the lake or go camping in one of the area’s numerous state parks. Many restaurants exist around the Deep Creek Lake region, including pizzerias and taverns. So pack up the family and head on out to the lake for the weekend.
