    History & Geography:
    Maryland is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Maryland has an area of 12,406.68 square miles 32,133.2 km square it is the 42nd largest and 9th smallest state and is closest in size to the state of Hawaii.
    Almost 5.976 million people reside in this state. This state is also known as The Little America and was established on the 28th of April 1788. The state capital is Annapolis.
    Maryland is a Mid-Atlantic state bordering Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C. to its south and west; Pennsylvania to its north; and Delaware to its east. That's defined by its abundant waterways and coastlines on the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean.

    Natural Resources:
    Despite its small size, Maryland enjoys a number of natural resources. It has fertile soil in many areas and a favorable location on Chesapeake Bay. The state's long water frontage on the bay has provided the basis of important shipping and fishing industries.

    Economy:
    Although the fishing industry is declining, the catch of fish and shellfish, chiefly from Chesapeake Bay, yielded an income of over $67 million in 1998, and the state's annual catch of crabs is the largest in the nation. The coastal marshes abound in wildfowl. Stone, coal, and iron, mined chiefly in the west of Maryland, are much less significant than in the 19th cent.

    Delicacies:
    Maryland farmers grow a variety of fruits and vegetables. It is a complicated mix of history, cultural/ethnic influence, and local commodities. Some states and cities are commonly associated with recipes (Maryland crab cakes, Boston baked beans, Philly cheese steak, New York style pizza) others are moore challenging to connect with a particular dish.

    Climate:
    Maryland has two climates. It is continental in the highland west and Average temperatures in western Maryland.

    Counties:
    There are twenty-four counties and county-equivalents in the U.S. state of Maryland. Though an independent city rather than a county, the City of Baltimore is considered the equal of a county for most purposes and is a county-equivalent.
