"Aberdeen ... it's known for ... ?" Aberdeen by ErinInMD

Aberdeen Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 21 photos

Aberdeen ... I live right outside it and have for 18 years. It's known for being the birthplace of Cal Ripken Jr. (of the Baltimore Orioles). It's also known for Aberdeen Proving Ground (the military base). Oh, and it's known for me.

Okay, I lied about that last sentence.

Aberdeen is a town proud of Cal (there's a museum), proud of Cal's minor league team (the Ironbirds) and proud of it's large military family presense.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Cal Ripken, Jr., Aberdeen Proving Ground
  • Cons:Not really a mecca for interesting stuff to do
  • In a nutshell:Nice stop on your way to more interesting places

    Excellent! Not only is Aberdeen unworthy of a photo but it's one place of interest has now closed! Very funny...in fact, I'd even go as far to say that it's 'faboo'!!
