OTD Partners with CRUSA for French and UK Writers FAMs
Through OTD’s partnership with Capital Region USA (CRUSA), Maryland Tourism hosted FAM tours for two groups of travel writers, one from France, and the other from the UK. The French group toured Baltimore and Annapolis and focused on Maryland’s culinary and arts assets. The writers visited the American Visionary Art Museum, took a sunset cruise aboard the Schooner Woodwind, a tour of the United States Naval Academy, and enjoyed a selection of local Chesapeake cuisine and local wines.
The UK group visited Frederick and Allegany County with the theme, “City to the Mountains.” Writers toured downtown Frederick, visited a Civil War battlefield, hiked around Lake Habeeb, biked along the Great Allegheny Passage, rode the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad, tasted local spirits, and experienced much more of the Mountain Side of Maryland.
