It feels like summer has reached its end now that Labor Day has come and gone. But fall doesn’t truly begin until September 22nd—and Maryland still has nice weather and plenty to do. Take advantage of the final days of the season with these local summer activities. There’s summer fun just steps from your Sturbridge Homes' front door!
Get Wet N’ Wild
Screaming on coasters or a waterslide are the quintessential summer activities of years past. Six Flags America debuted its season a little late this year, inviting guests on-site in early July. If you haven’t hit the rides yet this summer, you still have time!
Both the theme park and water park are open for your warm-weather enjoyment! This year, you are required to make a reservation in advance. Plan ahead and then pack your sunblock and swimwear. Wrap up summer with a splash!
Away For The Weekend
Weekend excursions are always a relaxing way to wind down the season. Maryland’s state parks are open for visitors and offer some of the most beautiful escape destinations in the country. Getaway from the usual tourist traps and find a peaceful camp spot for family time.
There are countless places if you’re ready to “rough it” in the great outdoors. Cunningham Falls State Park offers a massive lake for swimming and an impressive 78-foot waterfall. Janes Island State Park is a go-to spot for crabbing and camping enthusiasts. And Rocky Gap State Park showcases picturesque views of the mountainside and changing fall leaves.
Whether you want luxury-living in the backwoods or just a patch of land to pitch your tent, the locations are endless. The local KOAs offer affordable and convenient accommodations for full-service cabins, RV hookups, or tenting. The state parks themselves also have plenty of campsites available. Just check your destination’s website to see if you’ll need a reservation.
Be A Beach Bum
What would summer be without a day at the beach? Pack up the cooler, towels and sunglasses and hit the shore. Maryland has thousands of miles along the coastline, perfect for accomplishing one final tan of the season!
Ocean City and Virginia Beach are the more popular (and populated) beach locations. If you’re looking for a quieter slice of sand, avoid the crowds and head to one of these more remote beaches.
Don’t let the last days of Summer slip away without making the most of them. Sturbridge Homes are situated in an outdoor paradise, just a short drive from oceans, mountains and valleys.
