Located one hour west of Washington, DC, Middleburg occupies only about six blocks of green countryside. Despite its size, the town has become known as the nation's horse and hunting capital due to a long-standing fox hunt and steeplechase tradition. Some of the world’s finest horses—including Triple Crown winner Secretariat—have been raised in Middleburg farm estates, which are famous for their pristine hills. The town has also drawn prestigious horse owners, such as President Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, who made their summer home here. For an in-depth look at this equestrian culture, head to the National Sporting Library, where paintings, books, and rocking-horse tour guides chronicle the history of field sports.Though Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Inn sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
Swedenburg is located on historic Valley View Farm, which dates back to 1762 and still has a slight fondness for powdered wigs. The vineyard itself was planted by the Swedenburg family in the 1980s, more than 200 years after the farmland was originally cultivated. Today, the family still lives in the original, Colonial-era "Patent House," a testament to the farm's long history. When you pay a visit to Swedenburg, be prepared for hospitality befitting the landscape and Old World values. Weather permitting, picnic tables with umbrellas are set up for a relaxing wine tasting amid the bucolic splendor. Sample the six wines the vineyard produces, including Riesling with green-apple notes, the dark, oak-berry richness of pinot noir, and a semi-dry rosé for middle-ground wine balance.

Capitol Wine Tours also offers romantic outings for couples, fall foliage tours, and wine-country weddings.
LA Boxing’s instructors thumb their noses at the suggestion that fighting has no place in public. They happily subvert this social convention, leading students through safe and noncontact fitness classes inspired by the pugilistic arts. Each boxing, kickboxing, or group MMA class is led by a professional fighter, who teaches basic skills during the up-tempo, one-hour workouts. Students warm up with plyometrics before strapping on 6-ounce gloves and hitting a heavy bag with combination of kicks, knees, and elbows. Classes may burn between 800 and 1,000 calories per session, improve coordination and stamina, and increase your tolerance for listening to the theme from Rocky IV on repeat.
