Traveler's Tips for the Business Traveler Going to Maryland

a few travel trips if you happen to go to themiddleofnowhere, maryland. i was in either adelphi and hyattsville-take your pick. be able to speak spanish, in case you need directions-LOTS of latin bakeries, if that's your thing.  if you go to franklin's DO have the roasted mediterranean flatbread-DON'T have the bread pudding (great flavors, but a huge portion and the bread was not substantial enough). DO stop at a tangled skein-love that they had claudia's hand painted sock yarn and some pretty stitch markers. i do like to help the LYS when i can.  however, it made me really appreciate cast on cottage's selection and ambiance. this was a nice store with very nice people ( a lively bunch for the weekly knit night), but it was also very small and not well lite. if you rent a car DO utilize the map they give you and check your google directions against the map, or rent a GPS to prevent your from going to a different state to get to the airport. i'm glad i had plenty of time to get lost, more than once.DO remember maryland does not tolerate aggressive drivers or speeders-road signs clearly indicate this. DO plan to make multiple u-turns as you get no notice of upcoming junctions, and the right hand lane will cease to exist without warning.  renting a car on this trip reaffirmed why i like to go to a big city with a transit system, or is very pedestrian friendly. if you want an adult beverage to enjoy in your room, but don't want to go to the bar-find a liquor store as the grocery stores do not sell beer or wine OR you can enjoy a peach cosmo in the hotel bar-a very frothy treat! DO find a place that does crabcakes the right way, i had the MD crabcake sliders at the garden restaurant that was attached to our hotel-delish and the perfect size-all crabmeat! also, the homemade ships were awesome-DO refrain from eating the entire bowl of onion dip too! DO get out for a walk to see the area-the campus really was lovely, and DO look in the closet for the coffee pot-i know i thought the same thing (it was supposed to be in the cabinet under the tv that was clearly marked-ice bucket and coffee maker). all in all a great trip, good food to be had, i completed the leg of a sock, loved the citrus water they had in the lobby-will be stealing this idea myself- worked on my gilligan sweater, and enjoyed some quiet time.
clarification for some photos- the gold & white spires "thing" is the Latter Day Saints Temple in DC, spotted this on I-495, oh and the license plate says "taxation without representation" which i find hilarious.
