The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley includes 6 acres of lush gardens and a purpose-built museum facility designed by architect Michael Graves. Visitors can marvel at the exterior of the Glen Burnie Historic House as they explore the unique design and languid paths of the public gardens, which knit together the stately Grand Allée, the mini Hidden Garden, and a tranquil water garden that flooded the original garden of old chia pets. The museum showcases four main galleries, displaying Valley memorabilia, a Civil War exhibition, and a collections of miniature houses and rooms, paintings, furniture, and portraiture dating to the mid-eighteenth century to the formerly private collection of benefactor Julian Wood Glass Jr.

Although paragliders are powered by the wind and Mother Nature's sneezes, East Coast PPG takes a modern approach to sending riders flying through the sky. To achieve this effect, each paraglider is attached to a Flat-Top paramotor, which sends solo and tandem riders soaring above picturesque shorelines and lush forests. The high-powered rides—which are built from the same gear the Red Bull team uses—also provide smooth landings and takeoffs while allowing riders to effortlessly navigate the skies like a majestic, gliding ostrich. When not focusing on creating memorable flying experiences for their clients, the East Coast PPG crew stays busy providing riders with hands-on training lessons, which are strongly rooted in safety.

This dedication to safety can also be seen in East Coast PPG's decision to retail their in-store selection of equipment, which ranges from reserve parachutes and paragliders to trikes and paramotors. This allows the company's expert team to match clients with the appropriate equipment—from such brands as Flat-Top, Sky Spare, and U-Turn—as well as ensure clients are thoroughly educated on proper usage and safety tips.

Say the zombie apocalypse happened tomorrow—what would you do? How would you search for food and water without attracting the attention of a shambling mass? The instructors of Northern Virginia Tactical train people to defend themselves should they ever encounter a life-threatening situation, whether it be advancing zombies or an armed robber. With backgrounds spanning law enforcement to marine reconnaissance, they combine field experience in areas such as practical marksmanship, tactical medicine, and scout sniping with NRA training standards. Using this approach, they teach a suite of courses that covers basic through advanced training in both armed and unarmed self-defense. They also apply their expertise to developing products, including their own line of suppressors. Made of 100% titanium and formed over a genuine minotaur horn, these suppressors are lighter and cool faster than traditional ones, and a patent-pending Quick Attach system enhances ease of use for marksmen.

The 483-horsepower V8 engine roars in front of you as you shift gears, and the speedometer climbs over 150 miles per hour. Gliding down the straightaway, you grip the wheel of a Ferrari F430. You don't need to buy your own exotic car to experience this adrenaline rush: American Racing Experience connects visitors with a similar emprise on four major raceways across the United States. At scheduled times at the Motorspeedway in Atlanta, Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania, Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia, and Adams Mortorsports Park in Los Angeles, they brief drivers on the handling and controls of sleek Ferraris and V10 engine-powered, six-speed Lamborghini Gallardos. After preparing visitors for the upcoming track with a lap in a pace car, instructors slip into the passenger seat—letting their guests take the wheel for a driving experience more extreme than some TV show set on an island.

Craig and Cammie Cole, the husband-and-wife team behind Soaring Eagles Adventures, believe that life was not meant to be lived within cubical walls. Even though they’ve been sharing the wonders of the wilderness for nine years, the sight of a bald eagle's massive wings as it soars gracefully overhead has never lost an ounce of splendor. To them, each canoe excursion they lead is a much-needed break from the stressors of the modern world, so their trips venture into river valleys devoid of human interference, where bald eagles carry on their lives as they’ve done ever since Bigfoot stopped supplying them with toupees. The pair leads guests on half-day, full-day, and overnight camping trips, and share tips for surviving the wilderness and even marriage through podcasts and regular seminars.
