Maryland and New Jersey

Annapolis is only like a 50 mile drive from Alexandria, so we stopped by "on our way" out of town. What a beautiful place! We got there just in time to enjoy lunch (crab cakes of course) at the Boatyard Bar and Grill.
My blue crab cake sandwich...yum!

We went to wander the town after that and found sailboats and cute little shops. It was a very peaceful town.

Annapolis also boasts the Naval Academy, so we walked around the campus while we were there.

We had originally intended to head to Philadelphia from Annapolis, but had trouble finding hotel rooms in a decent part of town. Upon zooming out from Philadelphia, we discovered that Atlantic City was an hour away so we stayed there. (In order to get to New Jersey from Maryland, we drove through Delaware. The part we drove seemed to mainly be farms.). My favorite discovery in Atlantic City was that New Jersey does not have sales tax on clothes....and there was an outlet mall : ) It was really neat to see the boardwalk and the Atlantic Ocean.
