We believe that Washington, D.C. is a must-see for every American traveler. The centerpiece of American history and politics is a destination where you will always learn something new. Unlike many American cities, the sites are almost always free and your best bet is to explore the city by foot or rail.
Many trips often ask you to make a choice: explore the great outdoors, or spend time touring the city. Harper’s Ferry National Historic Park says why not both? This historic park combines the historic reenactment town charm with beautiful park views. Whether you want to spend a day in a museum setting, hiking, or learning about the colonial era of our nation, Harper’s Ferry National Historic Park has a little something for everyone.
The humble pancake, which when well-made is not humble at all, has an even classier cousin, called the crêpe.

I first ventured to Annapolis, MD, with my travel lacrosse team in high school. Since that time, I’ve been fortunate to return to the Chesapeake Bay area on several occasions. The nature of my visits often differ, but one thing remains the same: I never want to leave.

Not long ago, we featured a drive along the Atlantic Coastline of the Delmarva Peninsula. This time, we are going to drive up along the Chesapeake Bay side of the Peninsula, stopping at the charming out of the way places that give this region its unique flavor. From the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel, your drive back up the Bay side of the peninsula is slower paced and not as direct, since many of the highlighted places are on narrow necks of land reaching out into the Bay, or on islands you can reach only by boat.
History, scenery, quaint towns, outstanding eateries and the engineering wonder of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge are yours to enjoy, on one of America’s classic driving trips. Named for the three states that comprise the peninsula, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, technically, the peninsula is now an island, since the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal has cut it off from the mainland of the USA. Today more than 40 per cent of the shipping traffic in and out of the Port of Baltimore reaches that city via the canal.
