Welcome the New Year in the State of Maryland 2013
Divided by the Bay of Chesapeake into two unequal parts, the state of Maryland which lies at the centre of the Eastern Seaboard and is one of the original 13 American states, was named in honor of the wife of King Charles I, Henrietta Maria. Its neighbors are Virginia, West Virginia, the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania and Delaware while Annapolis is the capital and Baltimore the largest city. The small size of the state of Maryland belies the great diversity of landscapes with which geography has endowed it. From the forested Appalachian foothills and mountains of its western reaches to the low-lying Eastern Shore and Chesapeake Bay area, the state of Maryland has numerous natural attractions that lure tourists. With its close proximity to Washington D.C., New Year’s Eve 2013 celebrants in Maryland have plenty of offers.
You can take a cruise along the Potomac River on the Odyssey or the Spirit of Washington or enjoy an unforgettable New Year's Eve with an evening of dining and dancing while taking in skyline views of the nation’s capital. Ring in 2013 a little early with kids band, Milkshake as well as a ball drop and confetti cannons in Maryland Science Center, Baltimore. Dress up in your favorite costume and countdown to 2013 in Port Discovery, Baltimore or celebrate the New Year walking through the animated light displays and enjoying food, music, and fireworks in Symphony Woods, Columbia.
