I wanted to do the cemetery. Itís all close. The waterfront in DC I think itís called the Wharf. Definitely get out to Annapolis if you can.

He wanted info on Arrington, not Arlington. I thought it was a misspell at first too

Devils Backbone brewing and restaurant (really good food), Crabtree falls is a good hike, Skyline Drive not too far, and Charlottesville is a cool city about 30 minutes away north on route 29. There is a bunch of wineries around that area but haven't been to any of them. Don't head south on 29, it's just sleepy country towns.

It's close to Charlottesville and you can also visit historic Monticello.
