In the last few days of delicious spring weather I’ve hit the road – to these day-trip destinations safe enough for me super-cautious senior like me.
North Beach, Maryland
About 45 minutes from Greenbelt, North Beach is my favorite for walking on the boardwalk and eating good Mexican food outdoors. Read and see lots more about it in my 2020 article. And here’s a photo-filled article about visiting North Beach in the summer of 2017.
Solomons Island, Maryland
Solomons Island was featured as a day trip in this story from 2019. Going back again this week during covid, I found some closed restaurants but at least one on the water – The Pier – that was open for dine-in (not for me yet) and for carry-out and eating outside on their picnic tables (better!).
National Mall and Environs
Here’s my article about getting there, parking and finding accessible rest rooms. The area is always great for walking but even better by bicycle, now that the streets and sidewalks are so empty.
Sandy Point and the National Arboretum
Two more destinations I’ve visited during the pandemic are Sandy Point and the National Arboretum. One is the closest beach to Greenbelt and the other a 450-acre gem we’re lucky to have so closeby. The Arboretum is loved by not just gardeners but walkers and cyclists, too.
