If you’ve followed me long enough, you’ve probably seen me claim both Baltimore and D.C. as my hometown. Confusing, right? Let me explain.
I was born in Baltimore and lived there until I was five, then I moved to Northern Virginia (aka the D.C. suburbs) with my mother. My dad and his entire side of the family still lived in Baltimore, and since the two cities aren’t that far from each other, I was always bouncing back and forth. My dad has worked at Baltimore City Hall for a couple of decades, so it was fun getting to visit him at work and experience the city. Baltimore has a lot more culture than the D.C. ‘burbs does, and I love that half of my family still lives there!
If you’re in the Mid-Atlantic and are looking for a fun weekend trip, Baltimore should be on your radar. I had the opportunity to work with Visit Baltimore to put together a full weekend trip for you guys — and now I’m counting down the days until my next Charm City visit!
