We all need a getaway once in a while. So, grab the girls and head to the BWI region and Baltimore for the weekend. Filled with shopping and dining options, fun activities and a great nightlife, the BWI region and Baltimore is the perfect place to get away with your gal pals for a few days.
Follow this three-day itinerary for a great girls’ getaway:
Check in to one of the area’s many full-service or boutique hotels and relax before beginning your shopping extravaganza at Arundel Mills, the largest outlet and value retail shopping destination in Maryland. It features 200-plus stores with scores of premier brand-name retailers and discounts up to 70 percent off.
In the evening, get ready for a dining and entertainment experience extraordinaire at Arundel Mills’ Maryland Live! Casino. The $500 million, 300,000 square foot world class casino features 4,750 Las Vegas-style slot machines and electronic table games. Plus, on-site you’ll find several nationally acclaimed restaurants. Still have some energy left? End the night with some live entertainment at Maryland Live! Casino’s intimate, 500-seat Rams Head Center Stage.
Get up early, rouse your gal pals, and hit the BWI Trail for a walk or jog to get your blood flowing. This paved trail circles BWI Airport for 12.5 miles and offers several scenic views of the Airport.
If you’re feeling adventurous, head to Baltimore and check out Harbor East, Baltimore’s newest, upscale neighborhood on the harbor with phenomenal shopping and dining options. You’ll be within walking distance of Fell’s Point, a historic waterfront neighborhood with quaint brick buildings, cobblestone streets, a bustling food market and plenty of restaurants and pubs. If the timing’s right, take in a sporting event—Baltimore is home to both the Major League Baseball team Baltimore Orioles and the National Football League’s Baltimore Ravens—or head to the National Aquarium, one of the nation’s premier aquariums; the attractions’ multiple displays will truly dazzle.
For a laid-back start to your Sunday, make the quick drive to Annapolis and do brunch. Pick your choice of a jazz brunch, buffet brunch, fancy-drinks brunch, themed brunch, or even water-side brunch. Check out your options here. Afterwards, stroll this scenic, waterfront town. There are over 20 art galleries in Downtown Annapolis, lots of great boutiques with one-of-a-kind finds, and gawk-worthy picturesque homes on quaint, brick-lined streets. Or, head over to Washington, D.C. for a day spent wandering the National Mall or a light lunch at one of the many fine-dining restaurants in town.
