If you have a chance, and the time, travel between VA and MD via White's Ferry. It's fairly inexpensive and a great way to see the historical Potomac River. The boat we were on was the "Jubal Early" and the crew were very friendly! I noticed on the MD side you can utilize a picnic are, rent canoes, etc. Lot's... 更多
Your car will feel loved and pampered if you take the historic, leisurely White's ferry. It's a winding, quiet road through western Montgomery County, MD onto the wooden ferry over to Leesburg, Va. Enjoy a small, but special part of American History!

We took White's Ferry from Virginia to Maryland on a beautiful fall day and it was a handy, relaxing way to get across the Potomac.
