ALA Annual 2010

Discover D.C. – The Great Blogdown to the Annual Conference #2

If you’re planning an extended visit in the Washington DC area before or after the annual conference, consider a day trip to one of the near-by cities accessible from DC by car or public transportation.  During the week, commuter trains service both Frederick (MD) and Harper’s Ferry (WV)   and Fredericksburg (VA).   By car, these are a short drive away when commuters aren’t on the road.  These cities offer lots of charm, shopping, and tourist attractions.

Baseball aficionados may want to visit Baltimore (MD), also reachable by commuter rail and Amtrak.  Baltimore was the birthplace of George Herman “Babe” Ruth.  During the Annual Conference, Oriole Park at Camden Yards will be the site of the “Battle of the Beltways,” part of the MLB interleague series between the Baltimore Orioles (AL) and the Washington Nationals (NL).

Check out the ALSC Annual Conference Wiki for additional tips for theatre-lovers, shoppers, history buffs, and more.  The ALSC Local Arrangements Committee will be making additions every week as the conference approaches.
