With just a few short weeks left of summer, now's your chance to make some end of summer memories. No matter what you're interested in, or whatever you associate with summer, Howard County has exactly what you need for the end of summer. 

State Park

Go on a swinging adventure, and cross the swinging bridge at Patapsco Valley State Park. Follow it up with a hike through the scenic nature trails, while taking in all the natural sights around you. Patapsco is also a great place to mountain bike, go tubing, and to have an afternoon picnic in! Our other parks are also a great place to create lasting summer memories. Check out our parks page for more info. If outdoor adventures are your groups favorite thing, check out Terrapin Adventures and The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring. Climb through obstacle courses, defy gravity, and prove to yourself (and the world) that you know how to celebrate the end of summer.

If you have a need for speed at the end of the summer, head over to the Autobahn Indoor Speedway. Cruise your way through their indoor track, and see who can win out of your group outing! Going solo? Beat your own personal best. After your jaunt around their indoor track, head on over to the B&O Railroad Museum to learn about how people got around before the automobile! Wanna get back up to speed with the current times after checking out the B&O? Zoom over to Bob's BMW Motorcycle Museum, and admire the many bikes on hand!

The Mall in Columbia Plaza

Get your crew together and spend some time together solving your way out of Breakout Game's breakout room. You'll all need to be on your toes to crack these clues and puzzles. After, celebrate your flawless victory at Main Events Entertainment. Indulge in video games, bowling, or laser tag! Of course no end of summer day is complete without a stroll through The Mall In Columbia. Hang out with your friends, grab a bite to eat, and even check out a movie--all in one location. 

Make a weekend out of it by staying in one of our many hotels. We have just the right place to fit every size and budget, so what are you waiting for? Say goodbye to summer in Howard County!
