Vibrant Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland, and surrounding Baltimore County is great for car rental adventures.
We recommend starting your car rental tour of the region with a visit to Ellicott City. Just 16 km southwest of Baltimore, this old mill town sits on the banks of the Patapsco River. First settled in the 1700s, it offers car rental travellers a taste of small-town Maryland.
The second largest city in the county, Frederick is 60 km northwest of Baltimore, and is well worth the car rental journey. With pleasant restaurants and the fascinating National Museum of Civil War Medicine, the city makes for a perfect car rental day trip.
Only 56 km from Baltimore, car rental also gives access to Washington DC, the US Capital. A car rental visit here will enable you to see all the famous sights, including the White House, Capitol Hill and the Washington Monument. The city also has some great bars, cafes and restaurants.
The historic and contemporary Capital of Maryland, Annapolis is also regarded as the capital of sailing in America. Home to the US Naval Academy, a car rental visit here will reveal a host of pretty colonial style houses and a picturesque waterfront area.
To escape the hustle and bustle of Baltimore City, we also advise a car rental excursion to Oregon Ridge Park. At over 1,034 acres, the park features miles of hiking trails, plus sports fields, a beach and many picnic areas.
