Great way to get into Maryland for a ride to Sugarloaf. The short ride is always fun if your a fan of water. Great place to rent a boat and do a little fishing, we always catch fish there.

This is a wonderful and pleasant option to get around the traffic from Maryland to Virginia. It's not long, but it's a car ferry over the Potomac.

Some years ago I used to go there for fishing and picnic. It is a beautiful place in the Potomac River banks, where you can fish (I always came back with something). The small store sale bites and other fishing needs. Also you can cross the Potomac in an old style for $0.50.

Not pretentious, just my style. HAve a picnic, rent a cnaoe or boat and do some fishing, enjoy God's creation in a laid back way not typical of northern VA.

This passenger ferry has operated since the 1700s. Only $1 per person each way. Cars more. Glorious fall day, scenic countryside.
