Consider lodging accommodations at a New Windsor bed and breakfast when visiting the Central Region of Maryland.This area is rich in Civil War history. During the summer of 1863, the Union Cavalrymen rode through town on their way to Gettysburg, PA. A short drive takes you to Gettysburg battlefields as well as Antietam. Of course, a trip to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is a must. You can take a cruise on Chesapeake Bay to Fort McHenry. This will undoubtedly give you an appetite for the fresh seafood offered by so many of Baltimore’s restaurants. Sykesville, MD, on the National Register of Historic Places, is within a half-hour drive. You may want to take a break from the history lessons to go antique hunting or outlet shopping. If you are visiting in the fall, The Maryland Wine Festival, hosted by the Carroll County Farm Museum and the Maryland Wineries Association is a great event. Regardless of your reason for being in this area, make sure you choose a Maryland Bed and Breakfast Association member inn as your home base.
