Long Bar Harbor, a community of about 900 homes hidden in a nook along the Bush River in Harford County, has just two entrances between Edgewood and Belcamp along U.S. 40. That seclusion, its proximity to the Bush River and its wide range of home styles makes it a favorite among those who can find it.Each of the two entrances to Long Bar Harbor offers a different picture of the community of about 2,500 people.A flashing yellow traffic light marks the main entrance to the peninsula, bound by the Bush River, a tributary to the larger and more widely recognized Gunpowder River.

My good walk began after an early supper: a short Jersey Boy from Isabella's in Little Italy. The Jersey Boy is an incredible little sandwich (grilled Italian sausage with rapini, and peppery cheese on six inches of baguette) heated in the brick oven in the small corner carryout at High and Stiles, where the neighborhood bocce teams gather for their evening games. Isabella's is not strictly a carryout; there are a few tables and chairs. But Tuesday they had the air-conditioning set on Polar Vortex, so I took the Jersey Boy with me. There was a shockingly blissful breeze and the temperature seemed to be falling, making the Inner Harbor feel more like Bar Harbor, so I decided to head for Camden Yards and the Orioles-Angels game.

"I am convinced that there is no air in the world like the air of Maine."- Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, writing from Bar Harbor in 1944Standing at the summit of Sargent Mountain, deep in the heart of Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, Maine, I am conscious of every breath I take. It is an early summer morning, I've been hiking since daybreak, and the dense fog is just beginning to burn off, helped by the stiff ocean breezes coming up the mountain from Frenchman's Bay.Each breath is laden with scents so thick you can taste them on the back of your throat.

With high-end shopping, award-winning fine dining and a luxury hotel that can count One Direction members as recent customers, Harbor East can safely be called Baltimore's most glamorous neighborhood. When the attractive wine bar Vino Rosina came to Harbor East's Bagby building in May 2010, it seemed like a fine fit. But success isn't guaranteed just because a bar looks the part in an elegant neighborhood, and in July, Vino Rosina smartly hit the restart button. Ownership remains the same, but in its place is now Oliver Speck's, a restaurant focusing on Southern barbecue.
