If you like imagining rugged men in colonial garb camping in the woods, a trip to Jockey Hollow may be just the thing. Here’s where the Colonial Army spent two harsh winters during the American Revolutionary War. Be sure to explore the log cabins, built to replicate the troops’ rudimentary barracks. With its miles of woodland trails, Jockey Hollow is also a great departure point for hiking and birding excursions.
