Maryland is known for many things. Not only is it the birthplace of Babe Ruth and Billie Holiday, but it is also home to some of the most beautiful scenery in all of the USA. If you are planning to pop the question soon, this may be particularly good news as restaurant and at-home engagements have become somewhat clichéd over recent years. Let’s have a closer look at just 3 of many intoxicating places across the state that would make for the perfect engagement destination.
Sunflowers make for a beautiful backdrop
If you are planning a midsummer engagement, the majestic McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area should be on your list of proposal-worthy places. From mid-July through to August, thousands of sunflowers burst into bloom, creating an almost magical golden yellow backdrop. Although the splendor of the sunflower fields has been enjoyed by many, it remains somewhat of a hidden gem because there are no signboards that point to the fields. However, the McKee website does provide a map that points out the fix and you can even check the condition of the sunflowers to ensure that you pop the question on a day when everything is as close to perfect as possible.
Propose at the King and Queen Seat overlook
If you and your partner are outdoor enthusiasts with a particular penchant for hiking and rock climbing, there may be no better place to propose than at the King and Queen Seat at Rocks State Park. The breath-taking overlook is perfect for a romantic proposal although it might not be entirely suitable for first-time climbers. When choosing such a unique spot to propose you need to make sure that the ring is every bit as spectacular as the view. Thankfully, there are several astounding engagement ring trends worth considering. Contemporary ring designs with two stones are very popular as are modern and elegant geometric rings.
A pier proposal is bound to be memorable
Maryland is home to many gorgeous piers that are bound to make your proposal memorable. Although any pier can, realistically speaking, be considered proposal-worthy, there are three in particular that comes to mind when thinking about romantic proposals. Assateague Island’s elevated boardwalk is an absolute delight that offers lovebirds plenty of exquisite views. The Havre de Grace Promenade is equally as beautiful and a pleasure to stroll along, especially on a warm evening. If you want to go down on bended knee with an arresting sunrise in the background, head over to the Ocean Fishing Pier in Ocean City where nearly every sunrise has a dreamlike quality. To make your pier proposal extra special consider packing a picnic basket filled with your partner’s favorite treats and have a photographer on standby to capture the occasion for you.
Maryland is home to many beautiful proposal spots. Regardless of where you choose to pop the question, you are bound to be surrounded by the wonderful beauty the state is known for.
