Worth the Drive

These delicious destinations are the 6 best road trips to take this spring

(Fun fact: It was briefly the capital of the United States.)

It’s also an easy drive from Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Richmond. Here’s how to spend the ideal long weekend in Maryland’s charming capital city.
