St. Michaels or Cambridge?  (5 Answers)

I'm trying to decide between these two for a weekend getaway in June. They seem pretty similar, and are more or less the same distance from my house. We're interested in biking around pretty places and wildlife areas, sitting around relaxing with a picnic and/or a beer, eating crabs and other locally/culturally appropriate foods, etc. Is one place materially different from the other for any reason? (Traffic, cost, availability of restaurants, etc.) Thanks!

Camping on Assateague Island  (5 Answers)

We are planning to go camping on Assateague Island during the second week of April. So I have a few dumb camping questions :-)
I have never camped in the US and am used to just kind of finding a spot to put the tent and hang out. Now from looking at the website it looks like it is a bit more regulated. So basically, where do I physically go to pay for the campsite? Are there assigned campsites? Are fires allowed and is April going to be way too cold? Any must haves besides a tent and sleepingbags? And what are the chances of actually seeing the ponies?
I know that's a lot of questions and I am sure there is so much more I should be asking, but I suppose it is a start.
If you have been there, please share your experiences with me.

Thanks a lot!

National Harbor Hotels

I would like to attend a convention in National Harbor in the spring. Are there any reasonably-priced hotels there? I've found approx. 5 on the internet but all seem to be quite high priced. My conference is taking place at the Gaylord National hotel.

Suggestions for a 3 to 7 day Summer roadtrip  (3 Answers)

This is perhaps the most embarassing question I've ever asked in Forum, because I grew up in Maryland.

Thinking of taking a 2 week trip to MD this summer with my friend from China. Would spend first and last few days of trip visiting family and visiting the local area area (Baltimore, and possibly Ocean City and/or Washington DC). But would like to go for a drive for 3 to 7 days to see something beautiful, and that's where I'd like your suggestions.

Historical or other sigificant sites are OK, but if it takes a lot of explaining or is too US-centric, it won't be as interesting to us, unless it can be understood by just seeing and observing (without having to go thru a crash course on US history, explained/translated by crewrower in broken Mandarin).

I'd like to avoid extended driving on the the I-95 northbound corridor or any other roads where traffic or road repairwork is heavy.

If you will suggest I drive west, routing through Southeast Ohio on route to the destination would be good, as I can visit family there too.

We want to avoid sun-intensive activities, so no beaches or anything else where sunburn is a possibility.

OK, that's it. Have fun telling me where to go... I appreciate it.

I -95 Traffic Conditions and delays  (2 Answers)

I travel many times a month between Washington and Philadelphia Airport on I-95
Usually going North in the late morning or early to mid afternoon. Is there any way to find out what the road conditions are or where construction delays are before I get on the road? And if I am on the road already, is there anyone I can contact to check on construction along I-95, so that I could possibly plan my route around that area? I don't know if there is a MD Transportation number that I could call. On my way to a 10:00 doctors appointment near the airport last Friday I crept along in traffic between Exit 85 and the Bridge over the Susquahanna River for well over an hour because they had 2 of the 3 lanes shut down to do some work on the bridge. I never did figure out what was being done and why 2 lanes had to be closed.I only saw 2 or 3 persons .I always allow at least an extra hour to get to where I need to be when driving that direction but I was still a bit late for my apointment. I have Sirius Radio traffic for Baltimore and Philly but they don't cover the area in between on I-95.

Hello VTers!

I'd like to get away to Baltimore for a few days next week. I was looking around at B&Bs and was wondering if anyone had suggestions/advice? Does anyone know about Wilson's House near Druid Hill Park? (Is that a good area?)
Any lodging advice in general would be greatly appreciated.
