- Bring a hat! You never know what the Maryland spring might bring, and with the possibility of sun you want to protect your wintered self from the harsh rays of the sun. OR if it’s freezing, keep yourself warm while battling the winter that just won’t turn to spring.
- Jackets are encouraged as mentioned above. You never know what the weather might bring.
