Things To Do
Although the official state nickname for Maryland is, the "Old Line State", most people know the state as "America in Miniature". While the state is geographically small, there are beaches, farms, major cities, mountains, flatlands, and just about everything else you'll find around the country (except for maybe the desert).

Havre de Grace, Maryland is located on the eastern side of the state, in Harford County, about 45 minutes north of Baltimore and 1 hour 15 minutes south of Philadelphia. The town is situated at the head of the Chesapeake Bay, just slightly south of where the Susquehanna River (a major river through Pennsylvania and Maryland) joins the Bay.
