Oh, hi Baltimore!

Last weekend I lucked out with a 33 hour layover in the nation’s capital, conveniently located near my brother’s new home in Baltimore, Maryland.

He took me all over the Mt. Vernon area near downtown. Having never been before I was pleasantly surprised by all the local flavor. We kicked off our day at Dooby’s and indulged in some coffee and delectable spicy breakfast sandwiches.

We explored the Peabody Library, Walters Art Museum, Washington Monument and the Baltimore Basilica. We dined at the Mt Vernon Marketplace where there are a number of different vendors and eateries.

We ended our day at a rock climbing gym where I became familiar with my new favorite activity.

I was also thrilled to see so much great street art!
