Ice Skating in Baltimore
Ice Skating in Baltimore

Want to tour through Oxford, Cambridge, Vienna and Berlin without stepping foot off American soil? It's not impossible -- all you need to do is visit Maryland to experience these European-style towns that are rich in colonial American history. And while you're in Maryland, chances are that you'll come across water -- the largest body of water in Maryland is the Chesapeake Bay, but the state also has nearly 50 rivers and creeks, plus streams, lakes, ponds and the Atlantic Ocean to boot. 

Maryland is also growing as a business destination. Baltimore, which has been part of a major urban renewal, is home to a 300,000 square foot exhibition center which has an additional 54 meeting rooms. The convention center is conveniently linked by overhead walkways to the bustling Inner Harbor, hotels and fine dinning. And while in Baltimore for business, take the time to explore the city's many attractions, such as the science center, the aquarium, an the nation's third-oldest zoo!

Historical Notes: In 1808 with the suggestion of the president of St. Mary's College in Baltimore, Elizabeth Seton  started a school. She and two other young women, who helped her in her work, began plans for a Sisterhood. They established the first free Catholic school in America.
