As the name suggests, Clear Spring, MD, was built and named for the natural spring on which it resides. Call into Tom’s Run Outfitters and rent a canoe to make the most of the upper Potomac River. Spend your time absorbing the scenery, keeping an eye out for birds and local animals or simply relax on the gentle water. Top off your trip with a tour of the Knob Hall Winery. Pick your own grapes, learn about wine making, listen to the live music or simply enjoy a glass or two in the serene grounds.
