Adventure is in the air this time of year! Now is a great opportunity to get out and appreciate the natural beauty and stunning sites of our part of the region.
Spanning from Gemcraft Homes’ southeastern resort community, Captain’s Cove, all the way to our northernmost home sites in a picturesque rural Pennsylvania countryside, you can plan a road trip with your family and follow it with a home tour at each destination.
Here is a list of 5 sights to see along the way!
Wild Adventures in Accomack County
Captain’s Cove is a hamlet in Accomack County, Virginia, on the west coast of Chincoteague Bay. And this impressive resort-style community is where you should begin your journey.
From fishing and boating enthusiasts to homebodies looking to relax on the waterfront, there is a home just right for you at Captain’s Cove.
The main attraction that can’t be missed is Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. This 14,000-acre preserve is famous for its:
- Wild horses

- And so much more!
It’s an exciting destination for those who love the sand and surf!

Waterfront Destination at Rehoboth Beach
The beauty of Rehoboth Beach can’t be understated, and that’s why we chose to build Oyster House Village here. This brand-new community offers waterfront living on the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal.
When you arrive in the Atlantic coast town, you’ll want to make time for a laid-back afternoon and a sunset stroll on the mile-long boardwalk. This area is perfect for families who want to shop, enjoy delicious food, and be entertained with rides and attractions.
Don’t miss the upcoming holiday tree lighting event at the famous Rehoboth Beach Bandstand. It’s a lovely throwback, full of nostalgia that’s perfect for family time together. The rest of the year, this historic site offers live music by over 40 great bands!
Let’s keep cruising North.
Suburban Living Near the City
Just halfway between Philadelphia and Baltimore, Gemcraft Homes has several desirable communities for homebuyers that want easy access to city life.
Elk Nest, Riverbend, Pines at Cherry Hill, and Cecil County Offsites all have a wide range of floor plans, lot sizes, personalization options, plus the convenience of commuting to the nearby metropolises for work or play.
Of course, there are the usual city activities in Philly and Baltimore, but we have 2 specific recommendations to visit:
In Baltimore, you have to make a stop at the Inner Harbor – especially if you love art, science, and history. Home to multiple museums, aquariums, and the Maryland Science Center, you could spend days exploring and learning in this waterfront destination.
And of course, you can’t miss historical sites in Philadelphia, like the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and Elfreth’s Alley. This home of American history is one of our nation’s most important landmarks.
Countryside Wonder in York County
Continue north to York County, where multiple Gemcraft Homes’ communities showcase the country life. From quaint townhouse living in Sussex Place, to over 1 acre of privacy in York County Offsites, and duplex-convenience in Bridgeview, homebuyers can find home designs that suit their lifestyle.
And with miles and miles of farmland and scenery, you won’t mind putting down roots in this beautiful setting.
The local history dates back to Dutch, German, and English settlements, and you can see the continual influence of that lifestyle in the Amish and Mennonite homesteads. Head to the Amish Farm and House to tour life in this home of traditional values. Buy home-grown produce, canned goods, handcrafted items and other gifts, and see a unique way of life.
A Simple Life in the Woods of Cumberland County
In the charming town of Carlisle, you have your choice of classic rural pastimes to enjoy. From car shows to Civil War monuments and tours in the Historic District, you’ll feel like time has stood still.
And for family-friendly excitement, take a day trip to Hershey Park for world-class roller coasters and seasonal events. The home of Hershey’s chocolate factory is a national treasure!
