June in Maryland Means Craft Beers and Baseball

Try a frosty Baltimore Brown while catching an O’s game at The Yard, or find the perfect farmhouse ale for your trip to the farm at one of Maryland’s six amazing minor-league stadiums. Retrace the history of barnstorming Negro League legends and pay homage to Hall of Fame greats like Babe Ruth, Lefty Grove and Jimmie Fox while exploring Maryland’s unparalleled craft brew scene. You’ll find lots of great suggestions from our Craft Brew and Baseball tour and Maryland Baseball History roundup here on our website.

Dynamite Doings for Dads

Father’s Day may be only 24 hours, but Maryland has packed in a whole month’s worth of fun for fathers. See the Blue Angels roar over the Atlantic during the Ocean City Air Show. Take the old man to the sea for the OC Car & Truck Show and the Antique & Classic Boat Festival in St. Michaels. Let pop party like it’s 1794 at the Whiskey Rebellion Festival in Cumberland. Or indulge in a bit of the Three B’s at the Beer, Bourbon and BBQ Festival at National Harbor. For all this and more great Father’s Day fun, check out our June doings for dynamite dads page.
