This trip was wild, to say the least. Zack and I took this trip to drop shoes off at a shoe store, Flight Club, in New York. They lost our luggage but we still managed to make the most of our trip. We were in two different cities every single day! Our trip was only 4 days long and we visited 6 different cities. That meant lots of singing in the car to stay awake and good conversations. We flew into Baltimore and then drove to NYC then stopped in Boston, Philadelphia, Virginia, Washington D.C and back to Baltimore.
If anyone is interested in seeing a detailed outline of things we found to do and places to eat then scroll allll the way to the bottom! It is pretty long but includes a ton of stuff we didn’t actually get the chance to try.
Dos Caminos in Times Square
At our first stop, we met up with an old friend from elementary/ middle school. She was working an internship for the summer and we thought it would be perfect to grab lunch. We had fun catching up and seeing what she was up to! We hadn’t seen her since high school.
This is Linsey! She has a super motivational fitness Instagram @linz.fit. Check her out!
The food was pretty good but expensive! It was literally in Times Square hahah we had no idea! Let me tell you, parking was $40 for ONE HOUR. I repeat ONE HOUR. You might as well park 20 minutes away and Uber😂 Once in a lifetime, it was def worth it!
The food was really good but a little expensive. Knowing where it was, it wasn’t that shocking that it was expensive but I figured I would mention it still🙂 They have several different locations. So don’t worry if you want to try it you don’t have to go to Times Square necessarily haha.
The Paul Revere House
This was a crazy piece of history to walk through. Seeing Paul Revere’s home the way he lived in it with his family was amazing. I totally recommend stopping at this! They also had a student discount😁
They were installing some cobblestone right in front and it was def a good choice! It made it feel very historical.
Boston Tea Party Harbor
We opted out to go to this museum. We were extremely short on time and the tour was guided so we had to stay for a specific amount of time. It also cost somewhere around $60 for each of us! I am sure it is totally worth it. We could see people on the boats throwing the tea overboard (pretty cool), but for us, it just wasn’t worth it!
Benjamin Franklin Bridge
Being in Philadelphia made me feel like I was in National Treasure and I was so not mad about it. I loved that this bridge was blue, it was really pretty!
Again, National Treasure… Not going to lie I feel like the movie had the bell outside🤔. Who knows🤷🏻
They kept this building pretty much identical to how they would have met in it back in the day. Super crazy to experience history like this.
These were a nice little appetizer. We were starving and needed something to help fill our tummies! These were meatballs.
This was literally the best chicken ever. Zack was pretty upset he didn’t order it. I definitely recommend this place!
His meal was still really delicious but compared to that chicken, you just can’t!!
The Rocky Steps
I won’t lie I have never seen the movie with Rocky training on these steps but I kinda sorta vaguely knew what it was. We went because Zack was a pretty big fan of the scene.
This is across the street from the Rocky Steps. They were having some big event in the courtyard. Not sure what it was all about but it looked fun!
The view from the bridge just before the Rocky Steps.
The Fancy Biscuit
This place was really cute and different. I found them on Instagram, like most of the other restaurants we visited.
We both custom-made our biscuits. Zack’s looked super good!
Not going to lie, I didn’t love the Hollandaise sauce over mine. I will say the biscuit and the chicken was really good.
This margarita was so strong but in a good way! Loved it🙌🏼
The cauliflower tacos were really good too! I am trying to eat more plant-based so I figured ordering different things to see what’s good is a good way to get started. God, I also really love fish tacosssss. I have a new addiction to fish tacos😭
The White House
The backside of the White House.
The front. We were on the sidewalk on the opposite side of the street. They had the whole street area fenced off for some reason. Zack and I remember going all the way up to the fence on our 8th-grade trip.
Edgar Allan Poe House
These were the extremely narrow stairs up to his bedroom.
This was his bedroom. Super simple compared to what our interior design looks like nowadays.
Thank you guys so much for catching the wave with us🌊 ‘Til the next trip✌️ Love you guys! Like I said in the beginning, I have the whole detailed list of everything we wanted to see below! Check it out🧐
