Capital Region’s open spaces and remote places to visit in 2021

Capital Region USA has conducted research and found that 77% of holidaymakers are looking for beautiful countryside, wide-open spaces and the room for exploration and adventure on their next holiday.

The Capital Region which includes Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC, is home to mountains, forests, coastline, islands, national parks, rolling farmland and wide-open skies, making it an ideal destination to explore the great outdoors, hit the open road in an RV and get back to nature. Some of the region’s open spaces and remote places to plan for a 2021 trip:

America’s capital city: The greenest city on the East Coast

America’s capital, Washington, DC is the greenest city on the East Coast and home to the largest urban National Park, Rock Creek Park. The perfect spot to see the cherry blossoms, Washington, DC has so many beautiful outdoor spaces for visitors to enjoy. 

Take a family trip through the region with Bon Voyage’s brand new multi-generational package for 2021

Bon Voyage’s new Capital Region USA 12-night holiday costs from £1,655 per person based on four adults and two children and includes return flights between London Heathrow and Dulles International Airport with British Airways, minivan hire, 12 nights’ accommodation in four-star hotels and a personalised road book with travel tips and day to day driving itinerary with local area information for Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland. Prices based on travel over May half term 2021. 

Camp out in Virginia’s National Parks

Virginia has more than 20 national parks, including Shenandoah National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway, and its 38 State Parks, each as diverse as the state itself.

Collect shells and spot wild ponies on Assateague Island

Maryland is home to Assateague Island National Seashore, which is known for its pristine beaches and wild ponies. A good site to pitch up camp away from the crowds and spend time kayaking, hiking, bike, and horse riding whilst exploring the island.

Hike the famous Appalachian Trail

Virginia has more miles of the world-famous Appalachian Trail than any other state in America and the weather makes camping along the Trail possible for most of the year. Sample the southern end, where the Trail travels westerly through the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. According to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, this portion of the Appalachian Trail is the most remote and less travelled, making it the ideal way to escape the crowds.  

Slow down for the day on Smith Island

Smith Island is one of the least inhabited islands in the Chesapeake and is only accessible by boat. It is also famous for its layered cakes, the official dessert of Maryland.

Sleep in the treetops at Primland

A stay in a treehouse at Primland Resort promises stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains with access to amenities like golf on one of the nation’s top courses.

Visit a deserted island a stone’s throw from Baltimore

Located just outside Baltimore City, Hart-Miller Island and Pleasure Island are uninhabited beach getaways only accessible by boat, perfect for those looking to for a place to escape to.
