Choose your own adventure. They've got a boathouse bar, tack room, Saranac room, fly-fishing display, some taxidermy, and great porches. But be sure to visit the Great Room, constructed out of a 200-year-old timber barn that they brought in from Vermont. Eat fried pickles while you admire twig art.

2. Copperwood Tavern 4021 Campbell Avenue, Arlington, VA 22206 (Arlington)

Though you wouldn't expect it from the sidewalk patio, this Arlington restaurant is decked out like a wooden cabin, complete with a canoe on the wall, leather booths with plaid pillows, and copper embellishments all around. The American menu is strictly farm-to-table, and all of the farms Copperwood sources from are nearby in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. There's a full bar serving local Virginia beers on tap, bourbon, and moonshine.
