Anniversary Getaway: Baltimore, MD

Last week Wes and I took off in the middle of the week for a little 3 year anniversary getaway. We got engaged in NYC and married in Mexico so we made a pact to always try to spend our anniversary out of town (first anniversary we went back to NYC and the second anniversary we went to Vegas). We had originally thought we'd just stay in town because we had already gone to the Dominican Republic back in July and we have a 30th birthday trip planned for Wes in December. But the hubs suggested a quick and inexpensive trip out of town to keep our pact in tact. So Baltimore it was...


We left on Tuesday and it only took us 2.5 hours to get there. It was rainy but we didn't care one bit. We got up there and immediately wanted to get out and just walk around so we threw on our rain jackets and headed out. We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn near Inner Harbor and it was great (pic #1 below is the view from our room). There was shopping (we were right near MAC (and yes pic #3 is the MAC store), J Crew & Anthropologie!) and lots of bars and restaurants around us. We went to Fells Point to one of our favorite spots, Max's Taphouse. It's nothing fancy but we love going there. Don't laugh at pic #2, it's a recreation of a photo we had in Mexico - thanks Taco Fiesta  for the memories! We are so classy!


We had a great dinner out at McCormick's & Schmick's and walked around taking in the cooler night air. We just loved being by the water!


And the next day we got to go to the National Aquarium. For my birthday we went to the Metro Richmond Zoo and for our anniversary we went to the Aquarium...it seems to be a theme with us. We had a blast! If you haven't been then you need to go!


And as it turns out, we didn't need to go far in order for us to disconnect from everything and solely focus on one another. Sometimes it's nice for us to press pause on all the responsibilities that comes along with being a grown up and just have some play time. We had a great time celebrating 3 years of marital bliss.

  23. Aren't those getaways so nice? When you have kids you will really struggle to make time for a trip but when the kids get older you can resume your "couple life"
    Enjoy it!
    I have said it before but you guys are both such a gorgeous couple!
    Happy anniversary!!
