Need Help on N VA/DC/Baltimore

Neil McClanahan | Apr 7, 2002 07:05 PM

I'm heading northward later this week for a combo of vacation and continuing education. I will be staying in Manassas and Crystal City. I do plan a one day excursion to Baltimore (Mencken stuff and the B&O Museum).

My interest is in eclectic, reasonably priced places (<$30 including alcohol). Does anyone have any recommendations around Manassas?

I'm a railroad buff, and I plan to travel along I-66 between Manassas and Front Royal along the former Manassas Gap RR. Any cool lunch places along the way? Another area I'll hit is Harper's Ferry/Charlestown/Martinsburg on the ex-B&O. Any good places there?

Whilst in Crystal City, I'll have access to the Metro. Any special recommendations in Arlington/Alexandria/DC?

Any suggestions for lunch in Baltimore? I recall the Inner Harbor as having some good places, but my last visit was in '85?

Lastly, any recommendations on N VA wineries? I do plan to visit Gray Ghost.
