Now through the end of summer, enjoy gentle stretch yoga in Deep Creek Lake’s own lavender farm! From 9-10 AM, you can start the mornings feeling refreshed and rejuvenated with an easy yoga flow as you inhale the fresh lavender scent all around you. Open to all ages and skill levels, this class is taught by local yoga instructor Sheri Kosh. Be sure to book in advance using the link above and bring your own mat. Yogis are also encouraged to “relax on the porch afterward, shop the amazing gift shop which usually includes lavender-infused ice cream and lavender ice tea.” What’s not to love?!

If you’re staying at a property closer to Oakland, MD, or feel fup for a short drive, head over to the Mountain Fresh Pavilion in downtown Oakland for a concert series under the stars. From 7 -9:30 PM, local bands take to the stage for fun live performances that are totally free for visitors. It’s BYO chairs, blankets, and food and drinks, so come prepared; but the prep will all be well worth it when you’re sitting outside enjoying the ambiance of a Youghiogheny Riverfront concert experience.
