Middleburg, Leesburg, Waterford, VA, & Point of Rocks, MD Professional Review and Guide
"The unofficial capital of the “Hunt Country” of Virginia, Middleburg was first known as an overnight stagecoach stop with its convenient location midway between Alexandria and Winchester. Today many visitors are attracted to this picturesque little community and the many Hunt Country events. Located between the Potomac River and the Blue Ridge Mountains in the rolling countryside of northern Virginia, Leesburg takes you through two centuries of American history with authentic buildings of diverse architecture.
Narrow streets, brick sidewalks, quaint shops, and a variety of fine restaurants add up to an enjoyable day trip experience. Two-and-one-half centuries of history are preserved in the tiny village of Waterford, clustered around a mill on the banks of the Catoctin Creek. Today visitors enjoy the prime fishing waters here. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Baltimore. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
