What are some of the area's best daytrips? We've exhausted the trails of the Shenandoah's and need some fresh ideas. Thanks.

I like Charlottesville. Bunch of neat restaurants and wineries. And Monticello is definitely worth a visit.

it's amazing?

I suppose if you like the tiki bar, it's amazing.

Otherwise, it's a boat dock and a bunch of bars.

The function of conservatives is not to meet every liberal program or scheme with a denunciation or a destructive counterscheme, but rather to weigh its advantages and defects, supporting the first and challenging the second. A declaration of ideological warfare against liberalism is by its nature profoundly unconservative. It meets perceived radicalism with a counterradicalism of its own.

If it's a daytrip you want, here's the classic original. Everyone puts a little tiny piece of paper on their tongues, and then the rest works itself out on its own.

That was totally uncalled for. That hairy fuck didn't serve any purpose other than to disgust people.

You suck, razz.

The Northern Neck area of Va is nice, especially during the growing season. There are several "pick your own" farms in the area. There is also a nice state park along the Potomac River, although I cannot remember the name off-hand.

Northern Neck is nice. Park, I think, is Westmoreland State Park.

Gettysburg is less than 2 hours away, and is interesting if you like historical stuff.

Depends on what you want.

Annapolis is nice

Baltimore Inner Harbor (National Aquarium. Good restaurants)

Richmond (yes, Richmond) Confederate White House, good Museums.

Harper's Ferry (History and hiking)

Luray (if you like caverns)

I think Luray is very touristy now - too much so.

I've never done Annapolis. Is it worth it?

I would suggest George Washington's birthplace in Westmoreland County. It's a little less than two hours away, and a nice little drive. Once there, there are lots of places to walk (all flat), and you can go see the Washington family cemetery where ol' George's grandparents are buried.

It has an old Europe feel. The downtown area is very nice.

Check out the Fairfax County Park stuff first. They have some cool stuff.

Sunday, September 20
Spain in the American Revolution, 11am-4pm
Come to Sully Historic Site from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. to observe presentations of scenes from18th century military life by The Spanish Louisiana Regiment. Experience musket and cannon firing. See the fashions and hear music of the period. The fee is $6 for adults and $4 for children. Call 703-437-1794 for more information.

Check out the weekend section of the post -
http://www.facebook.com/washpostweekend

Tubing on the Shennadoha - But it might be a little cold now.

Buds Creek has some cool Motocross events. If you have never been, worth a trip. Some of courses have bikes going 15+ feet in the air.

Chesapeake Bay - Go crabbing on the Bay, tie leftover chicken bones to a string, drop it in off a dock.

Calvert Cliffs State Park - The cliffs which dominate the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay for thirty miles in Calvert County, were formed over 15 million years ago when all of Southern Maryland was covered by a warm, shallow sea. Over 600 species of fossils have been identified from these cliffs, with the teeth of various species of shark as the most abundant fossils. The park is 14 miles south of Prince Frederick on Maryland Routes 2 & 4.

In the Fall - West Va Apple Butter Festival - Oct 10th
