Kensington begins a day trip of fascinating stops. You’ll pass through Howard County and rub shoulders with Columbia, a town that offers shopping and browsing. Columbia took shape within guidelines that ensured a harmonious interdependence of homes, businesses, churches, and commercial properties. An innovative community-based health care plan and local hospital deliver medical care with convenience and expediency. Subcommunities, or neighborhoods, are clustered around ample recreational facilities. Tasteful architecture and low-slung building complexes slip easily into the green, forested landscape. Attractions include a shopping mall with more than one hundred opportunities to go for broke. Clothing, household items and furnishings, music stores, jewelers, and light fare dining spots are only a sample of the many shops and stops. The ubiquitous fountains and atria, which have been mimicked so frequently in other malls, add the peaceful sight and sound of flowing water complemented by rays of sunlight on lush plants.
