End of Summer Fun at the Ward Museum
Schools getting ready to kick back in. Plan a day trip to the Ward Museum to squeeze out the last of the lazy, hazy days of summer. The Ward Museum is located just 30 minutes west of Ocean City, MD. The museum is a great spot to cool off and take in the natural beauty of the surroundings.
