Events This Weekend in Delaware and Maryland

March 22, 2023

Can you feel it? With the cherry blossoms blooming in the nation's capital and spring training baseball in full force in both Florida and Arizona, it's starting to feel a whole lot like spring around the country.

And that includes right here at the Delaware and Maryland beaches. We've got some fun things to tell you about this week with many more outdoor activities coming up in the month of April.

It's looking like a great weekend for getting outdoors and enjoying all that the Delaware and Maryland beaches have to offer, as well as activities and events in nearby towns and cities in both states.

Keep visiting our Weekender Blog for much more to come as the coastal region is about to kick into high gear in advance of the 2023 summer season.

Have a great weekend everyone!
