Day Trips and Short, Fun Outings from Kim Keyes

posted in: Day Trips, Fun Stuff

Greenbelt writer Kim Keyes, we recently learned, doesn’t JUST write. She also makes videos, and has a new playlist called “The Baltimore and  Washington, D.C. Area that Tourists Rarely See” and it’s a great addition to our blog category “Day Trips.” We thank her for expanding our horizons and confirming that our area is incredibly rich in places to visit.

Explore and enjoy!
