It's another remarkably beautiful but simple video from Baltimore's Future Islands. "Balance," a cut from their Oct. 11 LP On the Water , gets a video courtesy of director Jay Buim. A nomadic couple hitchhikes along, finding enjoyment in innocent pleasures that feel wholly American - parking lot mischief, carnival rides and fried dough, aimless wandering down a highway hand-in-hand. The couple have little - really, just a backpack and each other - but their moods are never morose.

While some travelers seek out pristine white beaches for quiet and relaxation, others go to the beach for the boardwalk, carnival-like rides and an action-packed adventure. If you're of the later persuasion, then visiting the Wildwoods in New Jersey is a must do. The five-mile island is made up of three distinct municipalities: Wildwood, Wildwood Crest and North Wildwood – collectively known as The Wildwoods. Its famous two-mile boardwalk, replicated in Disneyland and Hershey Park, dates to the 1890s and was recently named one of the nation's Top Ten American Boardwalks by Sherman's Travel.

Karen Weber has spent some 15 years helping to run the spring carnival at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Essex. She knows what brings in the crowds — and it isn't the food, or the goldfish toss, or even the chance to hang out with good friends while helping raise money for church and school. Nah, what brings 'em in are the rides: the Ferris wheels and merry-go-rounds and other mechanical contraptions that lift you up and spin you around, defying gravity and turning the whole world happily upside-down.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLA. JOURNEY THROUGH HALLOWED GROUND Capital Books / $20 Instead of spending Presidents Day weekend skiing or off at a spa, why not brush up on your U.S. history? This book charts a 175-mile historic driving trip from Monticello in Virginia to Gettysburg, Pa. Most appropriate is the "presidential journey" part of the tour, which takes readers to the homes of several presidents including Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Dwight D. Eisenhower. And though Camp David is closed to the public, the book recommends stopping at the nearby Cozy Restaurant, which has an exhibition about the presidential retreat.

The familiar odor of hay and cow manure hung in the muggy air of the cow palace at the Maryland State Fair in Timonium yesterday, but some might say the real bull was on the other side of the fairgrounds.Under a large white tent, a stone's throw from the midway, the State Bar Association was staging a mock trial, complete with a real judge, lawyers for the plaintiff and defense, and "witnesses" to a pretend case.Listening to lawyers presenting their cases and questioning witnesses might seem to be an odd activity for a state fair, but more than 200 people sat still in the hot, humid air under the tent for the 1 1/2 hours it took to try the case, apparently engrossed in the proceedings.

Union Bridge and Gamber will start things off this week. Hoping for favorable weather, Gamber will offer a holiday fireworks display after dark tomorrow.
