Searching for an easy, kid-friendly day trip destination from Route 1 and D.C. that combines your love of hiking and history with my love of craft beer? 😉 Then head to Maryland’s Historic Ellicott City for a leisurely hike along the #9 Trolley Trail, take the detour to the Benjamin Banneker Historical Park & Museum in Oella for some history about Mr. Banneker (astronomer, farmer, mathematician and a subject of Stevie Wonder’s song, “Black Man” 🎵); then jump back on the trail and back to Ellicott City for some food and craft beer at a local restaurant (like Manor Hill Tavern or Ellicott Mills Brewing Company). Great day out with (or without!) the kids and less than an hour from Route 1 / DC area. 👊

As finishing touches are being put on the new playground in University Park (grand opening 5/19), I caught local sculptor Don Becker working his magical, chainsawing ways to repurpose an old tree stump into a new park bench! Purdy cool. Love the animal theme! More about Don’s other tree stump sculptures in UP here, here and here. […]

I know it doesn’t feel like it right now, but warmer weather will be here faster than you know it (groundhog be damned…) and the time will be just right to do a day trip or two from Route 1 and the DC Metro Area. An off-season visit to Sandy Point State Park is a great destination to put on your day trip list.
