Enjoy Some Outdoor Recreation at Aquia Landing Park

After being cooped up indoors all Winter, most of us have Spring Fever in a bad way. The cure is to head outdoors, and Aquia Landing Park is a beautiful place to visit.

Before and during the Civil War, this was a stop on the Underground Railroad, where slaves would emancipate themselves and escape from their masters. This was also the first site to see naval fire during the Civil War. Along with the historical value of the location, this is a beautiful place to go hiking, fishing, and to have a picnic. The park is open from eight in the morning until dusk every day, and is located off of exit 140 on I-95.
