Perfectly planned year-round getaways from thenation’s capital

Washington, DC, is within striking distance of all types of adventures. You can read by the ocean one weekend and hike mountains in Shenandoah National Park or visit a Civil War battlefield the next. Add a booming local wine and beer scene and there are now more reasons to get out town than ever before. This book is an idea generator for exciting ways to spend a weekend outside the city. It’s a curated menu of trips, from wine tasting escapes to stress- bashing hikes to lake house trips with your crew.

You can use this guide as a checklist of cool DC-adjacent getaways to tick off, or play weekend roulette— just close your eyes, flip the pages, and pick an adventure, including:

• Beach and Bay Escapes
• Outdoorsy Fun
• Wine and Beer Trails
• Small Town Vibes
• Living History
• Destination Stays
