Kennett Square, PA
OK, it's not technically Maryland, but just half-an-hour over the Maryland-Pennsylvania border is the vast 1,000ft acreage of blooms, woodlands, and meadows known as Longwood Gardens. Now through January 10th, the garden is illuminated with thousands of blue and white twinkling lights, whirling fountain shows, countless vibrant poinsettias and orchids, and a conservatory filled to the brim with glass ornaments.
On the banks of the Potomac River in Montgomery County, there is a sponsored Winter Wonderland Canal Walk that allows nature lovers to enjoy the colder months. With both options of a 5K and 10k walk, the trail along the C&O Canal features picturesque jagged rocks, epic cliff faces, and a rambling river nearby. If you’re lucky, the walk, this year on January 16th, will be dusted with snow.
