Things to do in and around

We are taking a weekend get away to College Park. We are going to go to a UM football game. We have been to DC several times and this trip would like to check out some of the local sights and sounds. Anyone know of points of interest or great restaurants in and around College Park?

Do you have particular interests? Is there a geographric range you are aiming for (no further than 10 miles round trip, etc.)?

The only thing listed in the Things to Do section is the College Park Aviation Museum.

We aren't limited in our area. We would like to utilize the metro as much as possible. We will have access to our sons's car if needed. We are not limited in interests and are open to any suggestions. Our son will be working most of the time during the day when we are there so were wanting something to do. He hasn't been there long or had much time to sight see so he doesn't have many ideas.

One day, if you don't mind driving less than 30 miles, why not take a trip to Annapolis? It's a great historic Capital and once you park your car, you can wander the streets, visit sights, shop, eat, take a boat ride, visit the Naval Academy, and just enjoy the scenic waterfront.


I would urge you to check out the site, and also use it to find the parking garage next to the visitors center. The parking is quite inexpensive in the garages, and is much easier than on street or meter parking which is limited to 2 hours and you MUST move your car after that time. At the visitor's center you can pick up a walking tour map which will guide you through the cobblestone streets and showcase the many historic homes and people who lived there. I don't think you will be disappointed.

thanks. We have been there once but have never done the walking tour sounds like fun. We will probably give it a try.
