7. Wisp Resort – 2 Hours, 10 Minutes From Frederick

We’ve been to Wisp several times and always have a great time!

The tubing hills are so much fun for the kids and the adults.

They have a people/tube mover to get you up the tubing hill.

It really doesn’t look too bad of a hill, does it?

The moving walkway taking you up the tubing hill at Wisp

That is, until you get to the top!

Wisp Ski Resort Tubing Hills

Our friends’ son, Caleb was the bravest out of all of us!

Maybe it’s because he was the closest to the ground.

Let me tell you, when you’re a middle-aged adult like me flying down that hill on a tube, your life flashes in front of your eyes!

But after the first time down, we adults got much braver.

And by the end of our day we were jumping on the tubes on our stomachs and racing each other down the hill.

So much fun!
