A site for artillery testing since 1917, Aberdeen celebrates its heritage every year on Armed Forces Day (the third Saturday in May) with tank parades and firing demonstrations. The town is also the birthplace of Cal Ripken Jr., who made baseball history in 1995 by breaking Lou Gehrig's record for most consecutive games played. If you're in the area during baseball season, see a game at the intimate Cal Ripken Stadium.
