    Located between Kittamaqundi Lake and the Mall, this is a pleasant, well-planned common space. If Columbia has a center, then this is it. It's a nice place for a stroll, and has a few restaurants nearby. Be sure to check out some of the artwork, especially the People Tree. Look closely, and you can see gold-colored human forms. This is the emblem of Columbia.

    This lake is nearly surrounded by residential development. But there is a small park on the north side. It has a dam on the eastern side, and a small creek flowing into it on the western side. They are connected by a hiking trail. Small, non-motorized boats are allowed on the lake.

    Wine in the woods is a wine festival held at Symphony Woods on the grounds of the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. It’s held to show off the local MD wineries wonderful varieties of wine. It’s a wonderful treat for the whole family, experienced and novice wine drinkers alike. It’s a must for wine lovers (and a great way to break into seemingly exclusive world with out all the pretentiousness). This is a two-day event that affords you the chance plenty of time to look around and enjoy everything at a leisurely pace. From vendors with jewelry to jerky there is something for everyone. Tickets this year were about $18USD for advanced and $20USD at the gate for entrance. This price got you 20 ½ oz free samples that were good at many tents (unless otherwise marked) and that is plenty. It’s a great way to try out many wines you haven’t had before or redeem more for a larger amount of your fave wine. Also you get a free commemorative wine glass to take with you. The selection of wine was huge and very good. Having previously worked at a winery (Cantiga Wineworks) in California, I was pleased with the quality wine that a few of these places had to offer. Basignani Winery is one of my new faves cause I actually liked the Vidal the best (and I don’t like white wine generally but they have a new fan here with this wine). This is just one of the wines in the American Market that has the power to stand up to other more popular international wines. Look out world Maryland wine is offical a shining star on the map.
