Tourism Tuesday: Inner Harbor

April 19th, 2016 by Allison Langley

HarborWhat: The Inner Harbor

Where: The Inner Harbor

When: Whenever you want to go.

I think this might be the most vague Tourism Tuesday, but yes, the Inner Harbor in the spring is something that every tourist and Baltimorean should visit/experience. We have all been spoiled with this amazing weather the past couple of days so how can one not think of a harbor with sail boats, blue crab, water taxis and the taste of a cool drink down by the water.

The Inner Harbor is the place to go because not only do they offer excellent dining choices they also have a wealth of fun activities. Try out the water taxi with the family to see all of Baltimore’s sites, or hit up Ripley’s Believe It or Not, or just go for a nice walk around the harbor.

Museum Monday: Thomas the Train

April 18th, 2016 by Allison Langley

Train What: Day Out With Thomas

Where: B&O Railroad Museum

When: April 29-May 1

How about some good old fashioned family fun? I think…yes. Double yes because it is with Thomas. I hope that when you were younger you shared the same obsession with Thomas the Train as I did and this event excites you as much as it excites me.

Bring your little ones from ages 2 and up to go for a fun train ride out in the sun. Along with the train ride there are several other activities to head towards. How about a picture with Sir Topham Hatt, or a magic acts, or even a moon bounce! There will also be carnival games and plenty of activities to keep you and your family busy throughout the day.

Food Friday: Kooper’s Tavern

April 15th, 2016 by Allison Langley

1390405603 What: Kooper’s Tavern Brunch

Where: Historic Fells Point

When: Hours

Come on down to fells this weekend…weather is to suppose to balm(y)… and head to Kooper’s Tavern for a great brunch option or lunch if you’re not and never-will-be-a-brunch-person.
I had the pleasure of brunching at Kooper’s this past weekend; I jump started my early afternoon with an excellent table look out onto Thames and the water in Historic Fells Point. And then dove into the Cream of Crab… perfect brunch starter right? But, the Cream of Crab was so delicious I would’ve ate a vat of it.
Kooper’s does have a mean brunch, I got the French toast with whip cream and cinnamon and it was simply perfect. Or bite into a Fish Sandwich for lunch; blackened Atlantic Cod, avocado (amazing), fried onion straws, and cilantro lime aioli make this the perfect sandwich.
Stop on by to Kooper’s this weekend!
