Maryland's capital, Annapolis, isn't overly large, but home to the United States Naval Academy and a number of Navy-oriented sites, visitors won't have trouble finding ways to fill a day between museum-hopping and local park activity.
From prehistoric giants like T. Rex and fossil digs to people power in Newton's Alley, far away planets to your own immune system the exhibits at Maryland Science Center offer an introduction to the world, past and present, that is both engaging and educational. Enjoy hands on activity with this museum's many interactive displays - and for those still a little too young to make sense of the earthquake table there's the Room to Grow, a spot designed specifically for tots under two. Catch a larger-than-life show in the IMAX theater, spot stars in the planetarium or during stargazing sessions in the Crosby Ramsey Memorial Observatory and get fresh perspective on the world with a short Science on a Sphere film before calling it a full day.
