    I love visiting the Front Royal area wineries. It’s an hour drive, many have live music (Marie Miller plays at Rappahanock Cellars –fantastic!), and the Marriot ranch is close by for horseback riding and other fun activities. Just make sure you have someone to drive if you plan on visiting LOTS of wineries, like my friends and I like to do :)

     My favorite close-to-DC day trip has to be going to the pumpkin patches near Fredrick, Maryland during the fall. Especially when there is a super value offered through a Living Social deal for Corn Mazes and Hayrides! Just far enough from DC to feel like your in the country, but not need a hotel for an overnight!

    My favorite DC area day trip is Annapolis…its an easy drive, historic, easy and walkable.  I recently went to CRUSH winebar with a friend and enjoyed their wine happy hour.  We also walked the streets of annapolis and ended up checking out more spots.  There is also lots of close shopping areas.  Being close to water is always good and helps make the day feel lighter!  Its a pefect day trip and date!

    Virginia wineries are the perfect nearby day trip.  Out near either Purcellville or Warrenton, both areas have tons of options with some kind of live entertainment on warm weather weekends.

    Driving out to Shenandoah National Park early in the morning for a nice long hike is one of my favorite day trips from DC.  Stop  at the Whole Foods in Centreville to make your own trail mix and pack lunch, and you’re good til dinner at some spot on the drive back to DC.

    My favorite day trip from DC is to the Virginia Bazaar in Ladysmith.  It’s an hour and a half drive to this massive flea market where you can find the weirdest goods and people.  If you’re looking for furniture, tchotchkes, knives, and vintage flatware all in one location, this is the place!
