Harbor View

On our first day in Baltimore, we decided that the aquarium was intriguing enough to give it a try on our second day there. We started off with a good walk over towards Federal Hill for brunch at Bluegrass Tavern. We needed a good, home-style meal that would fill us for the day since we planned on walking and adventuring a lot. It was delicious!

After brunch, we walked back toward Inner Harbor and bought our aquarium tickets. After hearing about the National Aquarium and how amazing it was - both from friends and websites - I was a bit disappointed. Large? Yes. But terribly laid out. And incredibly dirty - it looked like children has been drawing on all the windows with crayons (and we were there early). I found it weird to say I like the aquarium in Kentucky better (because, you know, it's in... Kentucky).  You can find more of the aquarium photos on Flickr, if you like.

We did enjoy ourselves, despite being stepped on a lot, but we definitely needed a beer, snack, and a seat afterwards. We took a nice walking tour of bars and restaurants, stopping in for snacks and beers wherever caught our eye. We even stopped into Rye again (we also visited last year in this post) for cocktails and duck fat fries!

  6. Agh, Leinie's is probably my favorite brand of beer. Cute outfit!

  7. A beer sounds wonderful after that aquarium trip. Sorry it was kind of crappy! I really love the Atlanta aquarium and the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. Both of those were really great last time I went.

    As for your dress. I love it! So nautical and cute. It looks perfect on you!
