At MACo Conference, A Chance to See Maryland in Miniature

America in Miniature
Maryland’s diverse physiography

Maryland’s varied topography has contributed to its nickname, “America in Miniature.” As Dale Hawks, Maryland State Statistician, National Agricultural Statistics Service writes,

Although our state is small, the geography is diverse, providing suitable environments for a variety of agricultural commodities. From the Atlantic shore, to mountainous terrain, and from a diversity of livestock to an array of crops, Maryland truly is America in miniature.

At this year’s MACo Conference, Maryland County Tourism & Economic Development Professionals are hosting a tour of county exhibits displaying some of our State’s many features, providing a mini-introduction to the varied qualities of our 24 counties and Baltimore City.

Our Bayfront Exhibit Hall will highlight unique attractions from across the state, including everything from Garrett County’s world-class rapids to Crisfield’s famous crabs. Join Cassandra Vanhooser, Talbot County Tourism Coordinator for this tour of county exhibits on Thursday, August 13 from 2-3 pm and learn about the special features, successful projects, and new developments in of each Maryland counties firsthand.
