What You Need to Know About Maryland as a Locum Tenens Healthcare Professional

We know you won’t always know much about the state you are traveling to. To help you make an informed decision, we’ve compiled information from TripAdvisor, state government pages, and tourist information sources to give you a glimpse into life in Maryland.


Maryland: A Brief History

Maryland became the seventh U.S. state in 1788. In the process, the state gave up part of its land two years later which ended up being Washington D.C.

Here are some other fun facts about Maryland:

  • Francis Scott Key, writer of The Star Spangled Banner, is from Maryland.

  • Visitors to the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Park can explore the same land that Tubman crossed while guiding almost 70 people to freedom during the 1800s.

  • The Appalachian Ridge and Valley is a slim strip of land in the north. It’s mostly forested and contains farmland and steep ridges.

What is there to do and see in Maryland?

Fort McHenry National Monument

Completed in 1803 to guard the entrance to Baltimore’s busy harbor, Fort McHenry became a national icon after withstanding a 24-hour bombardment by the British in 1814. The fort saved Baltimore from occupation and inspired Francis Scott Key, who was being held prisoner on a British ship during the attack, to write The Star Spangled Banner.

National Aquarium

The dramatic building overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor replicates several ecosystems as homes for marine life from all over the world, as well as birds, mammals, and appropriate plant life.

Baltimore Inner Harbor

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is a magnet for visitors, filled with attractions and entertainment options. The whole area and the neighborhoods just back from the water have been nicely developed with parks, hotels, restaurants, shops, museums, and historic ships to tour.

Foremost of these is the sloop-of-war USS Constellation, a three-masted sailing ship that saw action in the Civil War and intercepting slave ships off the African coast. Also open to tour are the submarine USS Torsk, the US Coast Guard Cutter Taney, and the Lightship Chesapeake.

American Visionary Art Museum

American Visionary Art Museum displays and celebrates the work of self-taught artists, both local and from around the world. Its collection and frequent changing exhibits are often surprising and thought provoking, looking at art in new ways and from new perspectives.
