Trains, Planes, but mostly, Automobiles

ROADTRIPPING IS THE BEST. It’s been around for a long time. Before the T-Model Ford, Chevy Corvette, the ‘Oregon Trail,’ and even before hippies started tricking out their air-cooled VW Vanagons, road trips have been an American favorite.  Countless movies, songs and books have been based on it. Look up Kerouac’s ‘On The Road.’ Arguably one of the most famous road trips in American History is when Sacagawea led those two other guys (what’s their names again?) across North America in search of a waterway to the Pacific. They failed, but the actual act of them roadtripping made them famous. If your reading this, chances are, your planning a trip to the Atlantic Ocean. In doing so, we would like to offer a few tips and suggestions before you hop in the car.

Tip #1: Look out the window (and if it’s nice out, open that window!). Cars are basically moving windows, they’ve got a three hundred and sixty degree panoramic view. That’s panoramic to the max! It’s ok to look around as you drive down the road. The Eastern Shore of Maryland is, for the most part, flat. But it’s home to some of the most beautiful countryside this side of the Mississippi. Old run down barns and farm houses are such a joy to look at and they can remind us how life used to be and to some degree, how it still is. There’s a lot of small towns with old brick buildings and narrow streets with old fire halls. Through these towns are small rivers and creeks that if followed could lead you right to the Atlantic Ocean, which is where you were going anyways… But in-between your home and the beaches of Ocean City are vast fields of greens and yellows and reds that if peered upon could show you deer and wild turkey and woodchucks scurrying across the ground. If riding on Rt. 50 make sure not to miss looking out over the Vienna Bridge. This is where the Nanticoke River runs along the Blackwater Refuge. It’s beautiful. There’s a very good chance to spot a Bald Eagle, Osprey or Great Blue Heron while heading over this bridge.
