Winchester, Va. -- less than two hours from D.C.-- is the home of country music superstar Patsy Cline. It's also the setting of "Homeplace: A Southern Town, a Country Legend, and the Last Days of a Mountaintop Honky-Tonk."
We’ve entered the dog days of summer, and we’re on the lookout for excellent excursions to escape the urban / suburban grind. Kojo takes to the water and the trails to explore kayaking on the Patuxent River, mountain biking at Fort Dupont, and other hidden and not-so-hidden gems in our region.
