This news comes from outside the New England area, but I thought I should pass it along. The Maryland Office of Tourism is encouraging residents and visitors alike to explore the Chesapeake Bay and the local towns that line its shores. Lighthouses are iconic symbols of Maryland’s maritime culture.
"The lighthouses that still stand – some completely restored with period décor and exhibits – are unique artifacts of a different era," says Margot Amelia, executive director of the Maryland Office of Tourism. "They have a certain mystique to travelers. Some you can visit in person. Others you can view from the water when you take a charter-boat lighthouse tour."
