Travel Journalist Services
The public relations team at Maryland’s Office of Tourism Development is happy to assist travel journalists who want to research or visit the state.
Travel Journalist Guidelines
The mission of the public relations department of Maryland’s Office of Tourism Development is to assist journalists developing travel stories about Maryland destinations, attractions, accommodations, restaurants and travel-related businesses.
In the 1920s, a reporter for National Geographic visited Maryland and dubbed the state “America in Miniature.” We’re proud of our nickname, and we think it sums us up quite nicely. We have it all – from mountains to seashores – and everything is within about a 3-hour drive of our biggest city, Baltimore.
Maryland Story Ideas
You've come to the right place. Maryland offers a wealth of possibilities, depending on the interests of your audience.
Here's just a sampling. The list goes on and on. To find out more about the state’s historic attractions, contact the public relations staff. Better yet, plan to visit Maryland yourself. You’ll soon discover that we’re still making history.
