I will be travelling around MD and PA in Septmeber celebrating my 10th anniversary with my boyfriend. I've spent some time reading about Gettysburg and decided that 1 day only will do for our tour in Gettysburg, we are interested mainly in the Battlefield tour.
We will rent a car. We are arrivning at the BWI and were thinking of going to Annapolis and then to Easton and St. Michaels but this same weekend (Sept 20th) will be the Chesapeake Film Festival and the hotels are sold out (our budget is around US100 per night).
That said, we are thinking of planning our trip counterclockwise. So we would leave the BWI and go to some place (which is why I am writting, I would very much apreciate suggestions) and then the second day would be Gettysburg.
Even if we are doing the Battlefield Tour (plus the Film, Cyclorama and Museum Experience) I dont want to arrive at Gettysburg late, that's why it should be the place for our day nº2.
So that you know, we love local food, local markets, history and culture. We absolutely LOVE a great breakfast, beer and tasty not-chain like burguers so tips regarding these are really really welcome! Oh, we dont like sports but we will go anywhere for great food and beer (thats is 100% true).
From there we will go to Lititz (maybe) and then to Philadelphia for 2 days, From there we move to Delaware for outlets, Ocean City, Cape Charles and Virginia Beach, St Michaels+Easton and back to Baltimore and DC.
