This summer might not look like the previous ones, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make some unforgettable memories.
While traveling overseas is temporarily out of the question, you can still enjoy a summer getaway by going on an old-fashioned road trip. We’ve pulled together four day trips from D.C. that you and your family or friends can take this summer. So grab some snacks, turn on the playlist, and let’s hit the road. (Don’t forget to be safe and follow COVID-19 precautions when you do!)
1. Spend a day exploring Charlottesville
Located only hours from D.C., Charlottesville is a quaint and charming town that is perfect for a day trip. Here, you can spend the day shopping at the Downtown Mall, learn history at the Virginia Discovery Museum, or stop by and admire The Rotunda—an iconic building designed by Thomas Jefferson. If you’re going on an adult-only trip, you might want to check out the acclaimed Barboursville Vineyards and spend a relaxing day wine tasting.
2. Hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains
Located in Virginia, Roanoke Valley is an idyllic place to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. With the ease and convenience of Amtrak or Blue Ridge Parkway (an especially scenic option), you can hike and explore some inspiring views along the Appalachian Trail. After your excursion, be sure to grab a delicious scoop of ice cream at Pop’s Ice Cream and Soda Bar—a sweet way to end the day.
3. Embark on an adventure in Harpers Ferry
If you’re feeling extra adventurous, why not try your hand at whitewater rafting? Jump in the car and head over to River Riders, which is located in West Virginia. River Riders offers both guided and self-guided tours, making it the perfect experience for both seasoned and novice rafters.
4. Enjoy a day seaside in Maryland
If you’re someone who loves the ocean, then what better way to spend a day than in a small beach town? It’s not hard to fall head over heels in love with St. Micahel’s, Maryland. This quintessential town is loved by both residents and visitors, and it’s not hard to understand why. With water activities, mouthwateringly fresh seafood, and stunning sunset views at Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, a day spent here won’t disappoint.
