Maryland - A significant region in American history since the Revolutionary War, Maryland’s proximity to Washington D.C. will keep the area involved in the political scene for centuries to come. The state’s diverse topography of marshland, forests, sand dunes, mountains, coastline and rolling hills, earned it the nickname of “America in Miniature.” Located along the Eastern seaboard of the U.S., Maryland has over 4,000 miles of coastline, including the U.S.’s largest estuary, the Chesapeake Bay. In coastal cities such as Annapolis and Tilghman, self storage units house rigging for private sailboats and commercial skipjacks, which are the official state sailboats used to dredge oysters from the floor of Chesapeake Bay. In western Maryland, residents around Deep Creek Lake use mini storage facilities to stash wakeboards and water skis for use on the lake, along with toboggans and snow skis for the slopes at Wisp Resort. With the variety of outdoor recreation options around Baltimore, mini storage units in the area contain an assortment of equipment for saltwater fishing, camping, crabbing and biking. Numerous self storage facilities populate the state of Maryland.
