For those in need of a multi-stop adventure, look no further than a day trip to Poolesville. The sunflower fields at the McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area are famous for their early-July blooms that reach up to seven feet tall. The wildlife area has four sunflower fields with free admission, perfect for an afternoon stroll or photo shoot.
But beware, the wildlife area does not have public seating or restrooms, so when hunger hits or nature calls, make the 10-minute drive over to Rocklands Farm Winery. On top of locally made wine, the winery has a rotating selection of local food vendors on weekends and welcomes outside food. There is live music every Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (Posted by Warren E Wilson, Community Contributor)
