Vacations, when done right, are the perfect escape. We leave our daily routines behind and exchange them for relaxation. I love replacing hustle and bustle with sun and sand, but unfortunately, it’s not always an option. That’s when vacation’s younger sibling comes in – staycation. Staycations are a great alternative because they allow a little escape without going too far from home.
My boyfriend and I went just a couple hours outside of Baltimore for a little staycation of our own. We stayed at The Gaylord hotel, which aside from long check in lines, was pretty perfect. We saw beautiful sunsets right on their pier and their spa was perfection. Food, shopping, and gambling were all close by making for a great mini escape. Photo diary below, so keep scrolling!
