Top 5 Weekend Getaways in Maryland


It may not seem like it, but we are in the midst of spring. Anyone else starting to catch spring fever? That feeling that you just can’t sit still, where you would do anything to escape the real world even if just for a weekend? With that in mind we are here to share with you the USA Today top 5 weekend getaways in Maryland; they are good.  We decided to go a little more in depth with some tips on preparing for the trip today and each upcoming Saturday for a few weeks.  Check back for some more inspiration and tips.

Maryland may be a small state, but it has a lot to offer from beaches and lakes to mountains and big cities. The first stop on USA Today’s list of Maryland weekend getaways is a small town with a big city feel. It’s out on Maryland’s eastern shore and is great for singles, couples or the whole family, Ocean City. Ocean City boasts 10 miles of beaches, deep-sea fishing, nightclubs, parasailing and a boardwalk filled with rides, games, and shopping. While you’re visiting don’t forget to try out some of the deliciously fresh blue crabs at one of the many crab houses in the area.

From Academy Ford Ocean City is a 3 hour drive. That is not too far of a drive to escape from the real world and leave your worries behind, is it? While it isn’t too far of a road trip we do recommend stopping by Academy Ford before you head out of town to make sure you vehicle is ready for the journey. Ask for the Bronze Service starting at only $57.90 plus tax, it is an oil and filter change, tire rotation, as well as a quick basic inspection of your vehicle to make sure it is up to specs. Schedule your appointment here or give us a call today (301)419-2700.  So pack up the Ford and head on out to the coast for the weekend and leave your troubles behind.
