Food
“Great local food and vendors. Open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Lots of great local fruits, veggies, meats, etc.”

Performing Arts Venue
“Since we are in between Baltimore/DC and NYC/Philly, we get awesome shows for way cheaper than in the big cities. The theater is well equipped, and drinks are actually affordable (7/8 for a healthy glass of wine!) There’s also a small but beautiful and historic theater that shows movies, sometimes free, but otherwise only $7. It’s so worth it to just check it out! ”

“All American food. Great crab dip. It gets packed on weekends in the lower bar. Great spot to feel the energy of the city and its locals. Brunch on weekends and I believe its $3 mimosas on Saturdays and $5 fish bowl orange crush on sundays.”
