The following is the list of incorporated places in Maryland. Incorporated places are self-governing municipalities chartered as cities, towns, or villages by an Act of the Maryland General Assembly or, in some cases, by a referendum.[1] Many well-known urbanized areas in Maryland are unincorporated places and can be located at the List of census-designated places in Maryland.
