The trail includes award-winning Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard, Great Shoals Winery, Olney Winery, Rocklands Farm Winery and The Urban Winery. The Antietam Highlands Wine Trail provides a simpler expe- rience, with small towns and historic battlefields scattered in between wineries among the moun- tainous terrain. The Carroll Wine Trail offers an agricultural experience to accompany the winery scene. An eastern shore wine trail, Chesapeake Wine Trail is home to 16 wineries. The area is the perfect place to pair fresh sea- food with locally cultivated wines. The wineries are open for tastings and tours to expand the palate and educate on the process of wine mak- ing. Some even offer extras, such as restaurants and live music, and many are available for private events. n River, just minutes from downtown Washington, D.C.

Its early history, membership in the first 13 colo- nies and location near Washington D.C., have made it one of the most historically interesting states in the union. Maryland is also known for its state flower – the Black-eyed-Susan – and its prominence throughout the state. Maryland's miles of coastline offer a variety of nautical experiences and culinary shellfish favor- ites. Visitors can also take in the high- lands in the west, along with small colo- nial towns and farmland, and may even catch glimpses of a wild pony or two.
