In my fantasy career I'm a globe-trotting travel agent, carefully planning fabulous vacations to international locales. My trips would open the eyes of travelers to new people and ideas, vistas and ventures they may never have imagined.

In my dreams, I am not only the planner, but also the guide. There are just too many places to go in this incredible world, and I don’t want to miss out on any of them!

Here are some trips to consider for this summer, all perfect for a family adventure you won’t soon forget!

Local (within an hour from Annapolis)

Terrapin Park -- Just across the Bay Bridge, take exit 8, turning left at the light. Turn left again at the second stoplight into the business park. Follow the road around to Terrapin Park, a lovely but hidden spot situated directly across the Chesapeake Bay from Sandy Point State Park.

Bring your bikes, walking shoes, kite boards and sand toys. The walking trails lead through shady woodlands to a narrow and long beach. Terrapin is the trailhead for the Cross Island Trail, a gentle paved path that meanders north. Stop at Love Point Park, which has a playground and bathrooms.

Since you're on that side of the bridge, why not go for a 35-minute aerial tour? Contact the Bay Bridge Airport to find several charter companies offering views of the bay, islands and channels you couldn’t see any other way.
