I was born and lived in one of Marylands small historical towns in the eastern part of the state. It is named Havre de Grace. Maryland has lots of historical small towns throughout the state. Maryland runs from the sea coast of the Atlantic Ocean to the peaks of the Appalachian Mountains. Each region is very distinct and different.

Its located 130 west of Baltimore city, 130 miles north west of Washington DC and 100 miles South East of Pittsburgh, Pennsylavania. Coming from a small town I appreciate the charm and laid back attitude of a small town. If your looking for a bustling tourist attraction you will be disappointed visiting Cumberland. If your looking for genuine small town Americana you will enjoy your afternoon in Cumberland.
