The Central Region is made up of Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, and Howard Counties.
The attractions vary from the state's historic capital, Annapolis, to its largest city, Baltimore, from waterfront villages and mill towns to the gently rolling hills of horse country and the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. This area is part of two geographic regions, the Atlantic Coastal Plain and the Piedmont Plateau, so the variety of industries in this area ranges from mining marble, granite and other stones to harvesting fish and seafood. This is where some of the most important events in state and national history took place and where people are still making history. In Central Maryland, you'll find government at work and Marylanders making important contributions in the areas of art, culture, education, medicine and business.
