Go here: Berlin, only seven miles west of Ocean City, is an antidote to a vacation overdose of sun, saltwater and mindless fun. The quiet, tree-lined streets of the town's historic district have a multitude of shops, art galleries and antique stores. The town is so picturesque it was chosen as the location for the filming of Runaway Bride and Tuck Everlasting. Berlin's historic district is lovely but small; it can easily be covered on foot in an afternoon, although you could linger there much longer if you have more time.

When a motorcycle accident left Corey Davis strapped to a hospital bed seven years ago, he began to lose hope for a recovery. "This is it for the rest of my life," Davis, who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury that made him unable to walk, recalled thinking. But after six months of treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital's Outpatient NeuroRehabilitation Program, he was back on his feet. Now the race director for Saturday's Ocean Games, an ocean sports event in Ocean City , Davis continues to give back to the program that helped him return to the active lifestyle he once thought was no longer possible.

City slickers, be forewarned. One visit to this picturesque and utterly charming town on Maryland's Eastern Shore, and even devout urbanites may be tempted to pull up roots, pack their bags and change ZIP codes. That's no exaggeration. Berlin has in recent years welcomed an influx of new residents -- nicknamed "come heres" in the local parlance. Indeed, those who discover this locale less than 10 miles from Ocean City and Assateague Island's famous ponies will find a destination that's increasingly gaining national buzz.

Berlin is already the official, ceremonial and historic capital of united Germany. The question now is whether it will become the actual seat of government, with the chancellor's office and most federal ministries moving from Bonn, or whether Bonn will remain the seat of real political power.As the Germans debate this problem with their usual angst, one calumny against Berlin should be put to rest: The idea that Hitler's brief association with the grand old city on the Spree somehow makes it a distasteful symbol and an unseemly capital.

Baltimore has experienced a bounty of Bach, Beethoven and Brahms, among others, in recent days. My favorite experience came Sunday evening when Shriver Hall Concert Series presented the Scharoun Ensemble Berlin, a chamber group comprising (mostly) of members of the famed Berlin Philharmonic. It's always uplifting to be in the presence of musicians who are at the top of their game. Brahms' Clarinet Quintet, a piece infused with twilight, received a performance of commendable sensitivity, where the spaces between phrases emerged as meaningfully as any of the notes.

There should always be room for an old-fashioned burst of holiday entertainment, free of complicated thoughts or challenging philosophy, well stocked with song and dance. "Irving Berlin's White Christmas," now at the Hippodrome, fits the bill nicely. To be sure, it does place a few demands on audiences. For a start, you have to suspend all cynicism and stifle the urge to groan at obvious jokes and turns of plot. Not that there is much of a plot. And you have to be open to some second- or third-drawer Berlin ditties along the way. Once you accept those terms -- if I can do it, you can do it -- you might be surprised how remarkably easy it is to enjoy this snowflake-thin variation on the let's-put-on-a-show business that goes with vintage musical comedy territory.
