  • National Aquarium

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Baltimore Things to Do

    Since its opening in 1981, the National Aquarium has been one of the major sights at Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Its striking modern architecture of a pyramidal roof, colorful rectangles and cylindrical sections are not what you may think an aquarium would look like, but once inside there is no doubt that the aquarium is all that you hoped it would...

    Baltimore Restaurants

    NOTE: After 30 years at Baltimore's Inner Harbor, Phillips Seafood has moved!! It's now located at: 601 E. Pratt Street Baltimore, still on the Inner Harbor but located next to the very large Barnes & Nobles store. It appears that Phillips also has a new style and is now no longer a buffet restaurant --- the end of an era!! Guests order from menus...

    Annapolis Things to Do

    Here is where many of America's most prestigious "old money" families tie up their pride and joy--their sailboats. In Annapolis, some of the country's finest sailors go head-to-head in competitions, such as the regattas held out in the bay. No wonder it's nicknamed "Ego Alley". The City Dock has restaurants, bars, shops, harbor tours, and a lot of...

    Below the Chapel is a crypt that contains the burial place of Captain John Paul Jones, (1747-1792) U.S. Revolutionary War hero.

  • Unique Shop in a Sea of Beach Junk

    Ocean City Shopping

    Almost every shop on the OCMD boardwalk sells the same t-shirts you see over and over again. Swirled World is different. I'm not a skater (in fact clashed with that group back in school days), but a lot of the fun counter-culture stuff represented here applies to many fringe groups.The staff is always pretty nice and you really never know what...

  • Rebuilt after the Fire

    Solomons Island Restaurants

    The Lighthouse Inn is on a narrow part of the island, and is visible both from the Patuxent and from Back Creek. You could see right through the top of it to the other side. The bar was in the shape of a skipjack. The one-third scale skipjack bar was designed and built by local master craftsman and carver, "Pepper" Langley THAT WAS THEN. But this...

  • Give the Kids a Souvenir

    Solomons Island Shopping

    When my children go on a trip, they usually want to buy themselves a souvenir. While my daughter and her cousins had fun in the children's section of the museum where she found and the docent identified a shark's tooth for her, she also wanted to buy an otter figurine. Who could resist that face? I bought my daughter a little otter because she...

  • Need Homemade Ice Cream or Chocolates?

    Havre de Grace Shopping

    The home made ice cream is on one side of the street and the home made chocolates on the other. If you need a chocolate fix, I am sure you can find what you need. Me, I stick to the ice cream. Bomboy's has been open since 1978 and uses family recipes. One question though... how do they get all that cream from a plastic cow?

    Assateague ponies, made famous by Marguerite Henry's novel "Misty of Chincoteague" and it's sequels, aren't always hanging out close to the trails. There are several outfits that offer pony watching tours by boat where you can get much closer to the horses than we did.Still, the MD end (National Park section) is great for short walks and you can...

    This restaurant has been re-invented as Bottom of the Hill Tavern.

We had eaten at Arizona Pizza and Rustic River, but didn't try the two Asian incarnations.The primary thing they serve here is ribs. But Bob had...
