Looking to go pumpkin picking soon? We’ve got you covered with this list of the best pumpkin patches in Maryland loved by friends and families of the Route 1 corridor!
The Hyattsville Zombie Run is happening Saturday, October 16th! Registrants will run, walk, skip along a great course with neighbors costumed as zombies, unicorns, pumpkins – and some even as themselves! – at this wonderful fundraiser for our local schools! Can’t do in-person? There’s a virtual option, too!
we’re here to share the good word about a little known trail, close to water (with a WATERFALL) and located just minutes from the Route 1 corridor: The Rachel Carson Greenway Trail in Silver Spring! Where precisely? Located in Burnt Mills West Special Park. Yes, the green area across from Trader Joe’s in Silver Spring. (Now you know exactly where I’m talking about.)
While we were pretty disappointed that the Cash Lake Trail did not actually lead to any cash 🤣, we still highly recommend this mainly flat, 2-miles or so hike that begins at the Patuxent Research Refuge Visitors Center in Laurel.
The Adelphi Mill Playground is a fun place for the kids to play, especially on a hot, summer day! Located in Langley Park / Adelphi, Maryland area on the Northwest Branch of the Anacostia River, this Imagination Playground is full of structures reminiscent of when the Mill was a functioning one. (More on this below.) Afterwards, skip stones and cool your feet in the nearby river or take a leisurely walk along the adjacent hiking trails. Take a look at the fun to be had. Lovely time altogether!
