The just-opened Mountfair Vineyards focuses on small-batch, Bordeaux-style blends.

Where wartime homesteads and fighting trenches remain intact.

The outfitter has everything you need to paddle into the wilderness. For a lazier way to keep cool, try a three-to-five-hour tubing trip. Chow down on char-grilled steaks over an open campfire after your day on the river (part of a dinner-and-canoe package).

Occasional signs read CROOKED ROAD, referring to the many historic bluegrass and country music sights that dot this lonely road, most famously the Carter Family Fold, a music center run by the dynasty that produces June Carter, wife of Johnny Cash.

Visit the grand plantation home of George Washington's sister Betty, just across the Rappahannock River from Ferry Farms, Washington's boyhood home. (One $11 ticket lets you visit both sites.)

The shop spikes its ganache bonbons with ancho chile and candied ginger.

Located on the Potomac River, the Torpedo Factory Art Center is an expansive complex comprised of the Alexandria Archeology Museum, six art galleries, innumerable art studios, and two workshops.
