Wednesday in Baltimore, City of York to Declare `Maryland Week'



Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from York County, Pa., Convention and Visitors Bureau

    YORK, Pa., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Call it
 Gunpowder diplomacy.
     Or call Wednesday's meeting at the Baltimore Zoo what it is:  An historic
 meeting of tourism officials from two counties in two states coming together
 to promote themselves and each other.
     Representatives of the York County Convention and Visitors Bureau, the
 city of York and the Baltimore County Conference and Visitors Bureau will hold
 a news conference at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the zoo's elephant exhibit. (The zoo
 is a member of both counties' visitors bureaus.)
     The Mason-Dixon Line, which connects the two counties, also bridges their
 20-mile rail trails.  Heritage Rail Trail County Park runs from downtown York,
 through rolling farmland, into southern York County.  There it connects with
 the Northern Central Railroad Trail in Maryland's Gunpowder Falls State Park.
 The trails draw hundreds of thousands of users each year.
     Eric Menzer, York's economic development director, will provide details of
 his city's plans for Maryland Week from May 5-13. (Sneak preview: The Maryland
 flag will fly from York's tallest building, and visitors will have a chance to
 win a trip to the motherland in York, England.) Menzer, who also is a board
 member of the York County Convention and Visitors Bureau, will be joined by
 Craig Peddicord, executive director of the Baltimore County bureau, among
 other guests.
     Directions to the zoo: From Interstate 83 North and South, take
 Exit 7/West to Druid Park Lake Drive.  News media should report to the zoo's
 Mansion House.
     York County is the Factory Tour Capital of the World, offering free tours

 Inc.  For more information about York County tourist attractions, visit
