Accident, Maryland: just south of the Mason-Dixon line in Garrett County; home of one of the finest Fourth of July parades and festivals in the whole country! They close the state two-lane "highway," Route 219, that runs through town, for the parade. Just park your car on one of the kind neighbor's lawn, pull out your folding chair, and watch the parade go right by you. Or, if it is hot or you are non-ambulatory, point your parked car toward the road and the parade will go by in front of your car. Nice, heart-warming "old-timey," small town parade followed by the volunteer fire department's chicken barbecue dinner and festival. Hand-made crafts for sale, too. Visit the original settler's cabin from the 1700s.
Then spend time at nearby Deep Creek Lake, Maryland.
Accident was named after two corps of engineers were sent to survey the best land in the area granted to George Deakins from King George II of England. Without knowledge of each other, they both marked the same oak tree as their starting and ending points. Deakins had this plot of ground patented "The Accident Tract." Now called the Town of Accident.
