On the outskirts of Baltimore, you can find the beautiful city of Columbia, Maryland. The city's unique layout consists of separate, smaller villages in an effort to improve the quality of life. This interesting method actually helped Columbia rank on multiple lists as one of the best places to live in the country. Founded in the 1960s, it's a relatively new town compared to many other cities in the area.

Columbia sits on the fringes of two of the state's largest metro areas, Baltimore and Washington D.C., and is also bordered by forests and wilderness. It's easily one of the best places to visit in Maryland because you get the best of both worlds. If you're looking for a fun way to spend your Maryland vacation, book an RV in Columbia.

The Great Outdoors

About 15 miles west of town, you can drive your Columbia RV rental to Brookeville. Brookeville is home to the wonderful Hawlings River Regional Park, where you can plan a nice summer day doing almost any outdoor activity you can imagine. With miles upon miles of trails to explore, you'd better set aside quite a bit of time to cover all the territory. There are hidden gems to be found along the trails, and there are plenty of places to fish. Wildlife can be seen in all direction, so don't forget to bring a camera.

Take the motorhome rental from Columbia over to the neighboring town of Clarksville and visit Middle Patuxent Environmental Area for another great outdoor adventure. Visitors to the park love the well-manicured trails, perfect for an afternoon hike. In the spring and summer months, the area explodes with the vibrant blooms of wildflowers. There's also an array of birds to watch as they fly, sing, and zip in and out of the trees. The best part about this beautiful spot is that it's only a few miles from Columbia.

If you don't want to travel too far from the city with the Columbia motorhome rental, you can head a few miles north of town to Centennial Lake, quite possibly the most beautiful human-made lake in all of Maryland. Bring your fishing gear along to catch a few of the several species of fish swimming in the lake's sparkling waters, or walk along the interconnected, paved paths that carve their way in and out of the tree line. Rent an RV in Columbia and visit the park in the fall to get a true feeling of the world-renowned New England colors.

Columbia was built with a unique design that has been replicated very few times. If you're heading to Maryland to explore the mountains, swim in the lakes, or see the White House, then Columbia is one of the best places to rent an RV.
