Traveling To Maryland

Disclaimer: This trip was not sponsored. Expenses were made by my husband and I. All opinions are my own.

So, hubby and I decided that it was time for us to have a mini-vacay, which I totally agreed with!

We had set our goals on visiting all of the 49 states and territories of the USA. And, we thought it would be best to continue traveling to areas that played a pivotal role in Black History (our first trip on said list was Georgia).

We purchased our tickets at a reasonable price from American Airlines. We were also able to find reasonable prices for our 3-day, 2 night stay at the Cambria Hotel in Hanover via I’ll talk about how our stay went later on.

Our flight was about 2-hours long. When we arrived, the temperature was about 69 degrees which is below the norm for us. We are used to warm weather!

From there, we made our way to pickup our rental vehicle. And thankfully, the weather began to get a bit warmer and the sun began to shine.

Once we got our rental, we headed to the Cambria Hotel. We were immediately greeted by the front desk staff who checked us in. The aesthetic of the hotel was really nice and we loved our hotel room 😍.

After checking in to our hotel room, we decided to grab some food at a local pizza spot called Gianni’s. We’d heard great reviews and decided to give it a try.

The staff had great customer service and their pies were super affordable. We loved the pizza from Gianni’s so much that we ate it every day during our stay!

Afterwards, we decided to go sightseeing.

We ate at San Antojito’s which was a local Spanish eatery as well as a seafood spot called Locust Point Steamers. The food at these restaurants were delicious.

Shortly afterwards, we visited the Reginald F. Lewis Museum. We learned so much about the history of Black people in Maryland.

Unfortunately, I fell ill after our trip to Locust Point Steamers. I may have eaten something that I was allergic to. That night and the next day consisted of me staying in bed. I swelled up really bad and had to go to an urgent care where I was given a steroid injection.

On the morning of our last day, I started to feel a bit better. I felt so bad that our trip didn’t go as planned.

I was able to muster up the strength to go to brunch. We dined at Ms. Shirley’s Cafe in Annapolis. The food was amazing!

Our planned itinerary consisted of a trip to The Harriet Tubman National Historical Park, The Walters Art Museum, The Baltimore Museum of Arts, Assateague State Park, The Antietam National Battlefield, The Small Boat Shed, Vault Restaurant, Cantler’s Riverside Inn. Iron Rooster, and Woodberry Kitchen.

It sucked that we weren’t able to fulfill the plans on our itinerary. However, the experience that we did have was great and we definitely plan to go back!
