In an April, 2009 feature story in Southern Living magazine about Horizon, Annette Thompson said: "We met legendary National Geographic photographer Bob Madden on the bridge over the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal just before sunrise.

Throw in accommodations and relatively temperate weather and it's a perfect place...[and it's] within a three hour drive of over 10% of the entire population of the U.S."
