• Get Outside

    Benefits and Places to Go

    Spending time outdoors has impressive health benefits, no matter your age. It can lift your spirits, help you stay fit and improve your mental and physical health. Sunlight is also a great source of vitamin D.

    With so much of daily life taking place indoors, most of us have to make getting outside a priority — or it won’t happen. If you don’t have a yard or a safe place to spend time outdoors, Anne Arundel County and the surrounding areas have plenty of outdoor spaces open to the public including parks, walking trails, places to swim and places for sports of all kinds. Many are free.

    Make outdoor activity a priority for you and your family. You’ll be glad you did.
