On August 3rd 1998, My husband and two girls and I went to the Inner
Harbor for the first time. Needless to say the weather was just
beautiful. The sky was pure blue all three days that we were there.
The National Aquarium was the best that we've seen so far. The
Dolphin show kept everyone on the edge of their seats. We were told
we were sitting in the "SPLASH" zone, but not one time did we get wet.
The Maryland Science Museum was nice. For $50.00 for all of us,
the best attraction was the IMAX Theater seeing first "Climbing Mount Everest" then the Thrill
ride. The screen was at least three stories tall. And it felt like you
were actually there. We then went into the Planetarium. To tell you
the truth going into one of those always reminds me of my childhold
because it really amazed me even 20 years ago.
We stayed at a "Hilton", as we usually do these days.We had a nice view
of the Pool area.
To be honest with you I might have gained about 5 pounds because of
all the good food we ate.We went to two seafood restaurants. The first
"The Rusty Scupper" was situated right on the Harbor and was very expensive.
If you want good seafood, trust me, don't go for the atmosphere. It's not worth it.
The food wasn't that good, but the view was georgeous.
The best seafood on our trip was found outside of The Inner Harbor.This time
I didn't order Crab Imperial like I usually do or Crab Cakes
This time it was directly to the Mother Load. Jumbo Crabs were served directly on the table. What a mess it was but
it was great!Then, believe it or not we all woke up with an appetite
and ate at IHOP. It was great. Like I said ,I know I gained.
On our last day in Maryland we stopped off at The Baltimore Zoo
It was one of the largest Zoos I've ever experienced being at. We had a very nice time
but it started to get very hot and we were tired of walking.
We love to take a few days now and then and get away from it all.
Every 4 months or so we start planning our next trip.We might head north next time again
but in a different direction. We've been to Rhode Island, Connecticut,
New York, Massachusetts. Our favorite to date is Block Island.
Seems that Cleve and I love being near water and boats .
It's great going away alone with Cleve but the kids really enjoy
vacations with us too.
