Venture out of the city with trips to Baltimore (Baltimore Farmers Market and Bazaar & Horseshoe Casino), Diehl's Produce Market (in Severna Park) and Loch Raven Reservoir (in Phoenix). There's lots more to do: learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, take in the history at Antietam National Battlefield, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art.
