Elkton, MD: Plumpton Park Zoo

For some reason, there is a zoo on the country road in Elkton, MD. MD-273 isn’t that lonely, but it is definitely off the beaten path. Nobody I know have heard of Plumpton Park Zoo, let alone visited it. I have only know about it from the drives and rides along MD-273. It was never […]

Kent Island, MD: Fisherman’s Inn.

Back at this giant restaurant on Kent Island, a small community between Annapolis (Mainland) and Delmarva Peninsula. It is curious why people begun settling here, because there is nothing on the peninsula. My hunch? Maybe people from Annapolis are trying to escape the city life? (That’s not really true though, because Annapolis is amazing). Fisherman’s […]

The Delmarva peninsula, consisting of the three states Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, is famous for sandy beaches that stretches for miles and miles more. In the States, city with beaches often come equipped with boardwalks, kind of like a strip shopping mall along the beach for beach goers to buy some ridiculously priced food, drinks and […]

Baltimore: Hamilton Tavern

Hamilton Tavern was selected for serving the “best burger” in the state of Maryland by Thrillist in 2015. Since the food scene in Maryland is based only on crabs, it wasn’t a surprise that a restaurant in Baltimore snagged the title. However, Maryland is pretty populated, being the suburbs of D.C., so it made me […]

Rocks state park

39° 38′ 14″ N, 76° 25′ 0″ W One of our friends, Jimmy, found a nearby waterhole we could take a swim in, and so we headed to Rocks state park. I was expecting a hole in the ground with spring water bubbling out, but it turned out to be a waterfall, and the second tallest free fall in Maryland. It’s […]
