Great place for a class field trip!
Kids-only section, lots of hands-on crafts on display in an exclusive area. Classroom environment is a semi-private section just for kids where they can create and display their art.

Adults can browse hundreds of unique historical displays and local arts.

Located on the grounds of Hagerstown City Park, you can browse the displays and hen take a fresh air walk around the ponds and let the kids burn off steam on multiple playground sets.
Bring some cracked corn so the little ones can feed the ducks and swans.

I bike on the canal whenever possible, usually embark Williamsport. We are so blessed to have this towpath in our backyard. People walk, jog, bike, fish along the way. Always a perfect antidote to daily craziness.

Pennsylvania Dutch Market

Reviewed By mrsagf - washington dc

This market was a great find. I am willing to drive a two-hour round trip to get there occasionally and only wish it were nearer. Open Thurs, Fri, Sat (check hours). Free parking lot.

Terrific bakery (try the old-fashioned sand tarts from Ridgeview's Bake Shop, Lancaster County, PA), large deli (great salads, rice custard), cheese counter, candy store, butcher, hot cooked meats, fresh fruit and vegetables,meals to go or to enjoy in casual seating, and more. Some gifts and furniture. Hard working vendors. A cultural throwback and a joy.

There is a sister store in Germantown, MD, just off I-270.

The wife and I went to the Maryland Theater for the Maryland Symphony Orchestra's Valentine concert " Romantic Rachmaninoff" piano concerto no. 2 featuring guest concert pianist Andrew Staupe. The concert was spectacular as is the gorgeous Maryland Theater. Newly refurbished from top to bottom. New seating and an audio loop installed in the floor for the hearing impaired The concert also featured The Pleasure Dome of Kubla Kahn composed by Charles Tomlinson Griffes and Don Juan composed by Richard Strauss. Just a marvelous evening at the theater.

Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum

Reviewed By Melody M - Hagerstown, Maryland, United States

We decided to take our 3 year old grandson who through a medical condition cannot speak however is not mental challenged. The minute we walked through the door the people were so nice and catered to all the children who entered. When we walked Aldean into the Christmas train room his eyes glowed and the Conductor had the trains running awaiting for the sightseers. Aldean would look, smile and say Choo Choo and point to a different engine he wanted to see run. The "Conductor" started what ever engine was anticipated. To watch the excitment of our Grandson was priceless. I could ever ask for anything else especially at Christmas!!!
