Here’s a new guide to hidden attractions, unusual locales
Writer: Angela Mattingly Breck | Autumn-Winter 2022

Southern Maryland-This is Living contributing writer Judy Colbert knows a thing or two about what to do and what to see in the region. She has published dozens of books about travel.
She’s also written dozens of stories for the magazine about the tri-county area – whether she’s taking readers on a tour of wineries and distilleries, featuring watermen heritage tours or detailing the history of the Ghost Fleet of Mallows Bay.
Colbert has been writing about the mid-Atlantic area for decades. “I have always been fascinated by the area’s history and people,” she says.
Her latest book, “Maryland and Delaware Off the Beaten Path. A Guide to Unique Places,” is now in its 10th edition. It’s available in paperback and electronically.
Colbert tells Vocal Expressions blogger Deliah Lawrence the new edition was necessary “because so many attractions (or restaurants, etc.) closed (lots of that with Covid) since my last update and replacing them with things that are interesting to see and do for a wide range of people and that haven’t been written about. What have I discovered that’s just not that well-known but should be?”
“Off the Beaten Path” features the things travelers want to see and experience –– if only they knew about them. From the best in dining to quirky cultural tidbits to hidden attractions, unique finds and unusual locales, the book takes the reader down the road less traveled, Colbert says.
“You’ll find the best food, the friendliest people, the most incredible history, amazingly unusual attractions, wonderful scenery and natural resources, and enough interesting ways to spend a few hours off the interstate to keep you busy for years,” Colbert tells Lawrence about the book.
