OTD, CRUSA Welcome German Travel Writers

The Maryland Office of Tourism, through their partnership with Capital Region USA (CRUSA), hosted a group of German travel writers the week of May 12. The German group toured Berlin, Ocean City, Salisbury, and Assateague Island. The writers came from all over Germany and focused on Maryland’s culinary and beach scenes. The theme of the visit was from “City to Beaches.” The writers visited the Atlantic Hotel, took in a Delmarva Shorebirds baseball game, strolled along the beach and marsh at Assateague Island, visited a local winery, brewery, and restaurants.
