So much more than just crabcakes!

I love uncovering secrets and for a great girlfriend getaway, Baltimore is just waiting to be discovered! First off, it's easy to get to, both by Amtrak and the happily un-hectic BWI airport, and second, it's so affordable! We gals admit we'll splurge when necessary, but getting a great deal makes us oh-so happy. Plus, saving on accommodations and travel lets us save more for bonding experiences like dining out and shopping!

My favorite way to explore is just wander on foot and I love that this is a walkable city, laid back and letting you discover it on your own. The charming cobblestone neighborhood of Fells Point is historic, yet is one of the hippest areas in town with a diverse, cultural mix along with fabulous shopping. I love Ma Petite Shoe, not just for the name but for the fact that they pair designer shoes with gourmet chocolate. Shoes, shopping, chocolate...need I say more?!!!
And kudos to the Baltimore Symphony for choosing Marin Alsop, the first female director of a major American orchestra. Love culture? The Baltimore Museum of Art has the largest collection of works by Matisse in the world - and no entry fee.

Walking and sightseeing works up an appetite and again we gals get what we love most - options! You'll find the gamut of ethnic foods in hot spots ranging from the casual to higher end but all without the velvet ropes! Bonding time with your girlfriends should not be spent stressing about reservations!
