The Dr. Samuel Mudd House & Museum

The original house of Dr. Samuel Mudd, the physician who set the leg of John Wilkes Booth.

Reviewed By YYYYDC - Washington DC, District of Columbia

Very well maintained & interesting home, filled with artifacts from the Mudd family - including the chaise where JWB was diagnosed, and the bed where he was treated. The guide did a great job of describing not only the events surrounding that fateful night, but also shared anecdotes about many of the items on display. Definitely worth a visit!

Went to see "Don't Dress for Dinner" recently and enjoyed the entire experience (well, maybe not the intermission - felt like a sardine in a can and when the outer doors opened...oh my!). Production values are solid, set was incredible and beautifully decorated. Cast was small but talented. Looking over their bios in the playbill it would appear that PTP has a core group of veteran actors that comprise many of their productions. This is a solid indication of a well run company. Kudos on an excellent performance - we'll be back!

Visitors can take a ranger-led tour to explore this historic fort's features and its role as the only defense for the Nation's Capital until the Civil War.

Reviewed By Kimberly H - White Plains, Maryland

As a small business in Charles county, I really try to support my local small business. Have spent many memorable evenings there. But the cost to promote my business was mind boggling. I always believe that you get MORE customers by pricing yourself reasonably. Maybe Regency (and the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs) could price themselves reasonably for local small businesses to get THEIR word out. I hope to see you next season.

AMC St. Charles Town Center 9

Reviewed By MomTia - Washington DC, District of Columbia

I can't say enough good things about the movie. However, the theater is another story entirely. It seems hard to believe that this theater underwent a major renovation less than 10 years ago. Again, it has been destroyed. Upkeep is DEFINITELY not a high priority. The theater is in great need of a thorough cleaning, starting with the bathrooms, then the seating, & especially the carpet. Upon entering the individual theaters, especially #7 & #9 they smell like a gymnasium; not to mention the humidity levels that keep them musty/moldy smelling. An industrial humidifier with the HVAC system would work wonders. On the upside; the location & the convenience of online seat ordering & payment can't be beat.

Cedarville State Forest

Reviewed By EffieRover - East Bethany, New York

This was our fourth year at Cedarville State Forest, and we're ambivalent about returning. Let me explain...

The campground is wonderfully quiet and peaceful. The forest is mostly unbroken and undeveloped, so the background is pure woods. The campsites are a good size and well appointed - each with a pair of posts for a clothesline, a fire pit, and a picnic table. Sites on the inside of the loop have electric while sites on the outside of the loop do not. There is no water or sewer hookup, but spigots are located between every few sites and there is a dump station. There is one bathhouse in the middle of the loop.

While there are no other amenities to speak of - no wifi, no playgrounds, no camp store - the park is close enough to all of those things that you can go get them from time to time if you need to. This is a place to relax, read, hike, bike, explore, photograph, and sing around the campfire. My kids have learned to trailbike here. We have truly loved this campground on our visits.

However...

Each year the bathroom gets a little worse. Cleanings are less and less frequent, and less effective. Last year, a child's bandaid was stuck to the bathroom floor for four days ... until I complained about the cleanliness. The next day, that bandaid was stuck to the wall just above the garbage can.

We are seasoned campers and we know that leaves, bugs, and ground litter track in on a regular basis ... but footprints on the walls? Piles of dead bugs and rotting leaves in every corner and behind every toilet? A ceiling vent so covered in spiderwebs that it doesn't look like its ever been cleaned? And showers that you don't want to step into, even with flip flops on.

The kicker this year was when I asked for the handicapped shower to be opened because I have trouble standing for a long time. And yet it remained locked on all weekdays.

As it's an otherwise wonderful campground located right where we need to be, we're on the fence, but strongly considering refilling our water tank from the spigot and showering in our own camper if we can. The restrooms have just become nasty.

There are so many things to do here! The ice skating is amazing year round, but wear a coat and gloves! There's a gym too, a climbing wall, and sports facilities (basketball courts, indoor hockey, soccer). I've been to a few birthday parties for children here and they're handled well (cost is similar to other party places in the area).

Love the theater. Seats are very comfortable. Good snacks. Regularly price snacks. Women's bathroom smell; hope management got that all straightened out - they claim that it was a sewage problem. I think it was just someone did not clean the bathroom. Otherwise enjoy yourself

Great family fun. New and clean. Friendly staff and even some healthier options on the menu. Staff helped us with everything, including selecting the right ball, which, of course, is essential.
