Great Things to do in Maryland for Couples to Enjoy this Year

The Deep Creek Lake area is packed with so many fun things to do! This is especially true for those who find pleasure in spending time outdoors together, challenging each other on hikes to beautiful waterfalls, swimming or kayaking on the lake, and heading to Wisp Resort for four seasons of activities. If you’re more of a homebody or prefer just relaxing on your getaway, you’ll be on cloud nine as a guest at our Deep Creek Lake Hotel. 

Here are the best things to do in Maryland for couples:

  1. Exploring the Best Hikes at Deep Creek Lake: The Deep Creek Lake area has many parks and forested areas for fantastic hiking. One of our favorites is exploring the trails at Swallows Falls State Park. The most popular attraction here is the 53-foot Muddy Falls, which offers beautiful waterfall views. The trails near Deep Creek Lake cater to hikers of all skill levels, from leisurely walks that allow connecting with nature and each other.
  2. All Season Adventures at Wisp Resort: Our Inn is conveniently located just across the way from this four-season ski resort and activity center. Many come from the city for weekend getaways in the winter to ski or snowboard. But during the warmer months, you’ll also find whitewater rafting, scenic lift rides, golfing, and zip lines through the forest at Wisp.
  3. Getting Out on the Water: Boating is one of the most popular things to do in Maryland during the summer! Spending time on the lake is necessary on any weekend getaway to Deep Creek. Boat rentals are available in town, but as a guest at our Inn, you’ll have access to kayaks, canoes, and even a daily sailing on our pontoon boat (weather permitting.)
  4. Wine & Dine: There are quite a few breweries and wineries nearby for a tasty adult beverage out with your date. We recommend Mountain State Brewing for a craft beer or visiting Deep Creek Cellars to taste their natural wines. You’ll also have plenty of dining options for romantic dinners for two. We suggest Dutch’s at Silver Tree, Fire Water Kitchen, and Moonshadow. 
  5. Antiques & Boutiques: Our area offers lovely scenic drives to exciting places for antiques and souvenirs from your trip. The small town of Oakland, MD, is just about 20 minutes from our inn and has an impressive selection of antique malls, shops, and great finds!


This is just the beginning of the best things to do in Maryland on your next romantic couples getaway! Now is the time to get your plans on the books.
