National Aquarium - Baltimore,MD

Naval Academy & Historic Downtown - Annapolis, MD

Maritime Museum & excellent walk-about town - St. Michaels, MD

All the main towns on the Eastern Shore of Maryland cater to tourists with excellent seafood dining, museums from art, boating, waterfowl, history...

It's beautiful.  Has a winery and distillery and tastings.  They make a chocolate zinfandel that is to die for.
