History...Bah! Humbug!

Let's not go all historic! If you are going to be in Mass. Think about Salem, Ma. and the Puritan witch trials. Loads of museums and sites in the area and not to far from Plymouth Rock! Colonial battle sites like Breeds hill and Bunker Hill lots of other places to see and check out in Boston too! Paaark the Caaar! Happy Trails, Ed

Uhm, Ed, those are all place of historical significants. It is kind of hard to avoid history even when trying to just see the sights.
The Kelly's are passing through Baltimore very soon to have some axles swapped out on their trailer. When they do, I promise to send them off on a tour where the history is balanced out with some pure fun. I however, find history to be highly stimulating. Maybe they can go fly kites at Fort Mc Henry. Fun at the site where the Star Spangled Banner was written, learning and fun all in one visit. Being from far from the sea, I think they will need to visit one of our downtown markets and sample some crab cakes, soft crab sandwiches or some Lake Trout. Perhaps they will be more into BBQ(coming from where BBQ is king) and I will have to send them for some Pit Beef(darn, now I am hungry and it is just breakfast time). They could also go visit the Aquarium or the Science Center. Does science count as learning when history is the objective?

Does anyone know of a good doggie daycare in Baltimore?

Wow! We will have to make a trip to Baltimore. I am all up for some cooked crabs. Sounds like a fun place.

I second the Gettysburg recommendation. I'd also add Thomas Jefferson's homestead on the Potomac River in VA to your list. It's just outside of DC.

Sounds like a fun trip! I like your Dane. We had one too - his name was Bongo. Hence my AS forum "handle"...

Uhm Frank, I was just tryin' to lighten up the posts a little! I know the trials were historic. Heck I had relatives in the colonies back then. If they hadn't hidden they too might've been "pressed"! But I won't get any hexes out of the ol' spells book if you disagree with my funnin'! Gave them something else to think of looking at in the process. Just look after their axles and there will be no need to dunk you guys! LOL! Ed

Haven't read all the post so if I duplicate something I apologize

1. Great Smoky Mountains in TN/NC - especially Cades Cove, Newfound Gap and the Gatlinburg area. Yes some parts very touristy but the mountains are awesome.

2. Chattanooga TN including Chickamauga Battlefield and the battles in and around Chattanooga. Chattanooga has a really nice riverfront area including Imax, aquarium, minor league baseball, Rock City and the bluff view arts district.

3. From Chattanooga you can follow Sherman's march to the sea (Savanah).

Happy Streaming!

@ Brian... please come. Baltimore has a great deal to offer the casual or serious tourist.

@Ed... Keep those hexes to yourself. Here in Maryland we never had any witch trials. History is thick here however. The Colonial period and the Federal period are very well represented here as things to explore. My favorite spot to see in Baltimore is Fort Mc Henry. Most of the tourists seem to go else where and the views are spectacular there. We have a very active sea port and watching the ships coming and going is kind of cool too.

Thanks Frank. I am checking into availability.

Wow, an awesome trip! In PA there is Valley Forge, not too far off of the Interstate. In DC Arlington Cemetery is a good stop as well. Have you considered any of the Presidential Libraries?

Good Luck in the rest of yourtrip

I can't remember if I posted the RV place we stayed when we were in Gettysburg. We really want to go back there and camp. We really enjoyed it plus we were only about 10 minutes from the town of Gettysburg.

Not my photo, but the essence of how it's done in Maryland. I think the "spiced crabs" you refer to is the Old Bay seasoning we steam them with.
