So, I don't think I would have picked Baltimore for a getaway but there was this Living Social deal I just couldn't resist. Mt. Vernon hotel in downtown Baltimore for 2 nights with breakfast & parking included - $152.
I booked for Dec 1 & 2 as they have a monument lighting with fireworks and laser show and I thought it would be something different to help us kick off the Christmas season. Turned out to be a great 2 days. The hotel was only a block or two from the park where the fireworks were and the neighborhood was very nice and clean. Here are a few pics of the hotel and monument.
There was a cute Irish pub around the corner from our hotel where we stopped for a drink.
On Friday we went to the inner harbor and aquarium which was also nice.
And here's a pic of the crab with a crab... LOL
There was a free bus to take you around so it really was an inexpensive getaway and a nice relaxing time before we get into the hustle and bustle. And we did alot of walking so I don't think I gained much... will get on the scale tomorrow!
Hope everyone has a good week!
