Bethesda — 9 nights

Bethesda is a census-designated place in southern Montgomery County, Maryland, United States, located just northwest of the U.S. capital of Washington, D.C. It takes its name from a local church, the Bethesda Meeting House (1820, rebuilt 1849), which in turn took its name from Jerusalem's Pool of Bethesda. Do some cultural sightseeing at Desert Rose Ranch & Winery and Aspen Dale Winery at the Barn. Explore hidden gems such as Cabin John Regional Park and The Manassas Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Bethesda: Fishpaws Marketplace (in Arnold), Morais Vineyards (in Bealeton) and Cold War Museum (in Vint Hill Farms). The adventure continues: experience rural life at Cox Farms, see the interesting displays at The Fauquier History Museum at the Old Jail, grab your bike and head to Capitol Crescent, and take in the history at Ox Hill Battlefield Park.
