A trip to Cumberland is worthy due to it''s lovely mountain setting and it''s proximity to so many natural wonders. While I''ve never done much more than pass through, I''m always impressed by it''s setting along the Potomac, at the foot of some very large mountains. I''ts actually the type of town where everybody feels like if they had to move, they could move here. As for me, I''m content to spend a few hour just eating and walking around, then driving along the highway through the mountains that surrounds this city.
