Blackwater Distilling

Maryland's distilling roots run deep. Prior to Prohibition, Maryland proudly produced what was widely regarded to be the nation's finest whiskey, a distinct style called Maryland Rye. During the 13 years of Prohibition, Maryland's enterprising farmers continued to turn their plentiful harvests into high-proof "swamp lightning" in stills hidden among the coves, inlets, and marshes of the Chesapeake. Oystermen and crabbers smuggled the "good stuff" up and down the Bay, evading Federal Revenue agents and the Coast Guard, finding safe haven among the close-lipped communities that lined the tidewater. But rarely did they face harassment from local authorities. Maryland, the only state never to enact a Prohibition enforcement law, was known as the "wettest state" during the 13 years of national Prohibition. It was during this time that Maryland figures such as Governor Albert Richie and author and Baltimore Sunpapers columnist H.L. Mencken rose to national fame for their vehement opposition to what they viewed as an egregious overreach of Federal authority, and rumrunners like Pete "King James" Kelly rose to infamy. At Blackwater Distilling, Maryland's first fully-licensed beverage alcohol distillery since 1972, we celebrate this brash, enterprising, and fiercely independent spirit, as well as the farmers, bootleggers, and rumrunners who kept the "good stuff" flowing while the rest of the nation ran dry. Like the enterprising farmers and watermen of the 1920s and 1930s, it is our mission to produce the highest quality spirits from quality, local ingredients, preserving one of Maryland's finest traditions.

My son bought me a groupon for my birthday and we had a great time. It's a small place in a business park but the tour is informative, relaxed and the tasting is fun, loved our tour guide. You can help with bottling on certain dates so keep an eye out for it on FB. Support local business!

Chesapeake Exploration Center

Reviewed By Prawet J - Washington DC, District of Columbia

The official name for this place is Chesapeake Heritage and Visitor Center. The building is located on the Chesapeake Bay in Kent Island (exit 41-of Rt. 50). It is also Queen Ann's County Tourist Information Center. There are two exhibits in two good size rooms in the building. Three observation towers allow visitors to view the bay and Kent Island from bird eyes view. Go in and get maps, information about what you can explore the Chesapeake area of Maryland. The front desk person is there to help you find your needed information. Stop and breath of the bay air before going home or moving on.

Terrapin Beach Park

Reviewed By jeff84deb - Waldorf, Maryland

Exit for park is on Kent Island right after or right before you cross the Chesapeake Bay bridge. Signage/markers guiding to the park could be better once you get off the main exit as you end up in a small business park and just need to keep heading in direction toward the bay until you end up in parking area for the park. The trail(s) were easy to walk, though a bit open to sun - esp. by marsh- and we got to see a couple egrets at the marsh area we passed heading toward the Chesapeake bay beach. Several families/couples were making full use of the beach ...we just walked along the water and took photos of the pretty bridge views. The biggest negative were the portable toilets...they were in such bad shape that they were unusable - with human waste over the seats, clusters of wasps and other insects inhabiting them. There are a few picnic tables not far from the parking area.

Mark Cascia Vineyards

Reviewed By MartineVei - Chastre

We've been visiting the winery by curiosity. We lived in Europe for years and visited numerous French and Italian wineries. This one is nice because it is kids friendly. Not for tasting of course but they can play around the vast garden while you enjoy your tasting. Some people brought their lunch. You can also order some cheese platters.
The owners are very nice and they are behind the counter serving patrons. Tasting is free, and you can buy by the glass or bottles if you want.
The view is great, the winery is directly on the shore.
You will find a lot of different wines. The muscat was unusual. The other varieties are more conventional, although the reds were having balsam aftertaste which is not my favorite. We ended up buying some bottles to bring back home. The prices are in the high range considering you are buying directly from the winery but I guess you pay a little for the nice surrounding and making wine in Maryland must not come cheap. I recommend the visit. It is always nice to encourage local crafters.
Just on a side note, the place can become very crowded on sunny week-ends and visitors are mostly looking like they are from Hamptons.

Reviewed By Leslie B - Bridgeton, New Jersey

We had an awesome hot air balloon flight today! Booking was easy. We drove in from NJ. Todd and his crew were great. We arrived before sunrise and got to help set up the balloon. The flight was a little less than an hour but we got a great view of the farmland and sunrise. Many great picture opportunities. Todd was a great pilot and guide. Our landing was smooth and we got to help bring down the balloon and pack up before heading back to the launch site for a toast. The balloon and basket were big for our group of 7 people. We were able to order a DVD of the go pro on our flight which is a nice souvenir. We hope to fly again.

This is a fine public swimming beach - with a section reserved for dogs and their owners! There is also an outdoor amphitheater, family picnic area and trails through the surrounding woods. Terrific view of the Bay Bridge. There is a fresh water fountain and wash area just off the beach and public restrooms are nearby as well.

This is the place if you like antiques.
