Maryland Women's Soccer :: So Much ... So Close
So Much ... So Close
It's all here beyond the University of Maryland campus.

City lights, history, sparkling waterfronts, monumental landscapes. Jazz, film festivals, marches and demonstrations. Shopping, professional sports, regattas on the Chesapeake Bay. Not just one city, but three. Not just any city, but the nation's capital, a major port city, and the state capital of Maryland.

Washington, D.C.
The nation's capital and its major attractions are within 10 miles of College Park. And the highly efficient Metro rail system, with a station at the campus doorstep, makes navigating the greater Washington, D.C., area easy. Campus shuttle buses serve the College Park Metro station, allowing easy access to one of the country's model transportation systems.

The 12th-largest city in the United States is often referred to as the "Charm City." Located just 35 miles north of the University of Maryland, its rejuvenation as an urban center is unprecedented. The Inner Harbor, its National Aquarium and tall ships, and the nearby Oriole Park at Camden Yards create an exciting, vibrant holiday atmosphere in a city that boasts one of the world's great sea ports.

The state capital of Maryland lies just 30 miles east of the University of Maryland. Long called the "sailing capital of the United States," Annapolis is located at the mouth of the Severn River on the Chesapeake Bay. The historic downtown area is known for its wonderful eating and shopping opportunities. There are few places in the world that rival the Chesapeake Bay area for its appealing qualities.
