Summer of KidsPost: Mountain views, Stonehenge copies and wild ponies
Elizabeth Murray, 7, of Omaha, Nebraska, and her family decided to keep their travel within their home state. They stopped in Alliance to check out Carhenge, a copy of Britain’s Stonehenge created entirely out of vintage American cars.
Theodora “Teddy” Hughes, 10, of Takoma Park, Maryland, also stayed nearby and visited Maryland’s only oceanfront state park, Assateague State Park, which is on Assateague Island. She enjoyed jumping the waves and watching wild ponies with her family.
Siblings Evan Zimmerman, 5; Alice Zimmerman, 9; and Clara Zimmerman, 7, of Olney, Maryland, Maryland, visited one of their favorite summer spots: Lewes, Delaware. They love its historical main street and calm beach. Here, they are pictured in front of the Zwaanendael Museum, which tells the story of the city’s Dutch founders.
