Taking backroads all the way from Rockville into Pennsylvania is a great drive on a nice day.

Sometimes you find random things at these places and just have to have them. Emily found one "Speedy Gonzales" glass in one of the booths and was determined to find another and low and behold, another booth had one to make the pair!
This place has a ton of things to look through. Plan on a couple of hours as there are 26,000 square feet of stuff to see. The backroads drive going into PA is fun and relaxing.
I love places like Yesteryear. They take you back in time and you always find interesting things to look at. This particular antique center is nice and clean and well kept. I highly recommend a drive there!

We stopped off at Serpent Ridge Winery near Westminster, MD, on the way home and was pleasantly surprised. It's a small, mellow place that has nice views of the vineyard and there are tables and chairs to picnic at. Music is going in the background and the overall vibe is mellow and relaxed. Owners Karen and Hal were super nice and fun to talk to. We shared a flight of some of the wines offered and then purchased a bottle of Serpent's Song to take home. They had a delicious wine slushy and Peter got a free one for Father's Day. :) This vineyard has live music and food trucks on Saturdays. Check their website for specific schedules.
Driving into Pennsylvania and finding antique centers is a great way to spend the day. It took us about an hour and twenty minutes to get there and the drive way fun in and of itself. There are many places to go picnic on the way home, with Serpent Ridge being one of them.
Chilling at Serpent Ridge.
