My boyfriend and I went to Baltimore last weekend!Like I said before, I came down with a cold and was forced to stay in for a while so any excuse to get out of the house was a good one. We took the Marc train down and explored the Inner Harbor! My boyfriend and I took a quick day trip to Baltimore last week!
I mentioned this on Sunday but we decided to take a Water Taxi to get to various places. We could have walked, sure, but it was fun to take a boat. It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon with very low humidity levels - quite atypical for the area, but we're not complaining!
We started off with an early lunch in Harbor Place at the Cheesecake Factory. I know it sounds ridiculous to go all the way to Baltimore just to have a meal at the Cheesecake but we've found they actually make amazing cocktails and drinks. We then made our way over to Fell's Point for a bit of sight seeing. We saw a cute store with painted bricks that look like points of interest in Baltimore! A future DIY perhaps?
Although I didn't get any pictures of this, I really should mention that we stopped by a Hattery for both men and women. I took a snapchat selfie wearing a fascinator but this was also a haberdashery of sorts. Guess who liked that? (hint, his name is Brian).
Next we headed to Fort McHenry, a big battle site during the War of 1812! To be honest we didn't see much of the fort - we just weren't feeling it that day and they charged quite a bit to see the inside. We just wanted an easy-going outing, not an expensive history lecture in the hot sun. They had a nice grassy area where we hung out and we saw some of the canons and the outside of the fort. We did see a map on the ground and of course my first instinct was to get a picture standing next to Washington, DC. I know my boyfriend is getting used to my antics because before I could even request a photo, he says, "That'd be a nice photo op!" Gotta love having an Instagram Boyfriend :P
And we finished the night in Little Italy at a fantastic restaurant called Germano's Piattini.
All in all, it was a great trip and I had a great time seeing more of the DMV (that is the DC, Maryland, and Virginia) area. If you guys are planning a trip out here, I would definitely recommend the Inner Harbor! There's lots to do and see while the port town has it's own quaint charm.
