hi friends! we got back from our short d.c. trip and had the most fabulous time. seriously, it is definitely the highlight of our mini travels for 2017.. let’s be honest. we basically hopped on the plane, got to baltimore pretty tired after a full week prior and sort of winged it. got some great suggestions to jump start my planning from friends.. and it was go go go for the 2.5 days we were there. here is a photo journal of our trip with some tips & reflections at the end! definitely looking forward to our next visit to d.c. and the rest of our mini jaunts lined up (hawaii, portland, santa barbara) over the next few months. happy traveling friends!
we just got back from our trip to d.c. which ended up being quite short… but it was packed with so much fun! we flew into BWI. (there are closer airports so definitely check your options, but BWI worked for us in terms of timing, costs, and our plans) .. we were going to take the MARC into d.c. but ended up meeting up with my cousin who lives in baltimore for dinner first so we took the metro from the restaurant into d.c.
family vacations are the best. growing up we spent many summers and winters up in the cabin in lake tahoe. it’s so fun to continue this tradition with our sweet little e. we were super pumped to get rooms at the hyatt resort in north tahoe (my favorite area on the lake).
STAYCATIONS! one of our favorite staycations this year was heading a short drive south to huntington beach to stay at the hyatt resort! i love using points to find ways to make our trips go a bit further and we used points to book a 1 night stay to avoid resort fees and save on a bit of cash!
