East bound and down, loading up and trucking. We're gonna do what they say can't be done. We've got a long way to go, and a short time to get there. I'm East bound, just watch ol' Bandit run.
Yes, I need to go get Smokey and The Bandit on DVD. I miss that movie.
Anyways, I'll be out in Baltimore next week. Never really been there for more than an hour. Any suggestions on things to do?
I take my hat off for one thing, one thing only

I used to live close to Baltimore. The main thing you want to do is stay away from most parts of the city after dark. :D
But, that said, you'll want to go to the Inner Harbor. It has a bunch of nice restaurants and shops and a battleship museum.
Wow, stay indoors? Sounds like a blast ;o) Inner Harbor might be a plan. Thanks.1:59 PM
Inner Harbor is a great idea! There's plenty over there. No beach though. There is water and ships and thangs ;)6:29 PM
I wrote you a long comment and, well, it got dumped accidently. So I don't know if I am going to totally re-create it, but.... Here goes:
1. Yes on Inner Harbor. There's also the aquarium next to the Hard Rock. Get tix through the base - save a coupla bucks.
2. If you want decent bar food, there's Hooters and Capital City Brew Co. But I wouldn't bother with most of the other restaurants ON the Harbor.
3. There's two somewhat pricey good chains: Legal Seafood and Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Legal Seafood has the BEST fried whole-belly Ipswich clams. By far. And I don't like fried clams! I ordered two orders of these though - one right after the other.
4. Upscale excellent Southern food = Charleston restaurant.
5. For the best Eastern Shore experience and beautiful location is across the daunting Bay Bridge - Harris Crab House. It's somewhat touristy, but totally authentic for Maryland Blue Crab. Take Hwy 50 east over the massive bridge and follow the signs for Harris. Oh, and that bridge is so crazy that some people have to "hire" a driver to take them across!
6. If you bring kids, go to the Discovery Zone a few blocks from the Hard Rock. Awesome.
7. There's also Annapolis and DC....
Need more? Gimme an e-mail! I got tons more. Tons. Lived in MD for 4, husband in DC for 10....
Too bad baseball season is over...I'm a big fan of Camden Yards. Despite living in DC for 3.5 years, that's the only place I've been to in Baltimore.
Eat some crab cakes!
damn! desult and I could take you to the aquarium, since well, wed figure you might need someone to hold your hand in the city
oh yeah and check out little italy for dining...marvelous food at a decent cost!!!1:55 PM
