Travelers can also visit the first Carmelite monastery in the U.S., the Carmel of Port Tobacco, for either a mass or a tour.
Bustling Washington, D.C. is less than an hour north, providing attractions such as the Smithsonian museums, national monuments, and the urban amenities of dining, nightlife and shopping.
Nature lovers staying at our Waldorf hotels can head west to the Potomac River to spot bald eagles at Chapman State Park, or take a short jaunt east for sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. Cyclists can also wind through forests and wetlands on the Indian Head Rail Trail.
