Do you have big plans for Labor Day weekend? If not, we can help you find the perfect destination for a fun weekend away, without having to travel too far. Check out this list of our favorite getaways, each within a short drive of Baltimore.
For the Adventurer
Want a break from the rush of city life? Get in touch with your outdoorsy side at Deep Creek Lake. It’s about a 3-hour drive away, but it’s worth every moment to be in the heart of the mountains, surrounded by nature. There’s no shortage of activities, like water skiing, hiking, and swimming. Another great destination for outdoor adventure is Harpers Ferry, just an hour from Baltimore in West Virginia. Plan a day hike along the Appalachian Trail, then return to town for a cozy evening in the historic district.
For the Beach Goer
Labor Day Weekend is the perfect opportunity for one last beach trip before fall begins. Luckily, Baltimore is within driving distance of some truly amazing beach towns. Rehoboth Beach in Delaware is the place to go for a classic boardwalk experience, complete with soft serve and arcade games. Or, visit Ocean City, Maryland, another seaside escape. Just like Rehoboth, it’s only 2.5 hours away and has everything you could want: an exciting boardwalk, beloved restaurants, and more. If a relaxing beach vacation is more your speed, Cape May offers pristine beaches and quaint scenery just 3 hours from Baltimore.
For the History Buff
If you’d like to take advantage of the long weekend to visit some museums or historical sites, there are some excellent nearby options. In fact, Washington, DC is just an hour’s drive away. Check off some Smithsonian museums, or plan a tour of the Monuments. Lancaster is also only an hour away and has some great sites and activities, including historic walking tours.
For the Homebody
Who doesn’t love a little staycation? You don’t have to leave the city to enjoy a luxurious, relaxing weekend. Head to the garden terrace pool right here at the Promenade and enjoy a relaxing day in the sun.
Happy Labor Day!
We hope these ideas inspire you to treat yourself to something nice this Labor Day Weekend. Whether you venture out for a trip, or enjoy a relaxing stay here at Promenade, we wish you a safe and fun long weekend.
