While the modern world forces constant attention and creates frequent stress, the farms and agritourism sites in Prince George’s offer solace from that chaos. These spaces were built long ago by Native American inhabitants and new settlers, and they’re still open to visitors today. During your visit, you can engage with farm animals, learn old farming practices, ride horses, and much more.
