According to Visit Maryland, one of the best things to do this Thanksgiving is to visit a National or State Park in the region. Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg is a popular location among history buffs, while the coast—including Assateague Island State Park—is great for any family that enjoys fishing and relaxing on the beach.
Thanksgiving is often associated with overeating, yet there are a number of Turkey Trots that offer opportunities to burn off some of those calories.
