In the Shadow of Edgar Allan Poe: Sites in Boston, Baltimore, and Beyond

Edgar Allan Poe has been an icon of English language literature for over a century. Between the chilling and killing of Annabel Lee to a raven rapping at a chamber door, his works are amongst some of the most celebrated and reenacted in our culture. A Poe fan, but not an expert, I’ve stopped in many places where Mr. Poe lived during my travels. And it occurred to me: just how many sites are there to visit for Poe enthusiasts?

Surprisingly, I couldn’t find a comprehensive list of Edgar Allan Poe sites. I did some digging around and compiled this … Continue reading

Discovering the Charm of Baltimore, MD – Things to Do & Travel Guide

Every building is so beautifully crafted and the entire city sits on its original streets, making it feel … Continue reading

10 Easy Day Trips from Washington, DC

There are lots of places to visit in and around the immediate DC area, but many more areas to be explored in the areas surrounding the nation’s capital. If you’re live in DC or are looking to take some day trips, here are some great ideas for nearby places to explore for an easy day trip from Washington, DC.

How to get there? To be honest, many routes are best done by driving your own vehicle or renting a car. Trains aren’t super fast, cheap, or popular in America, so I’d recommend looking into Greyhound or Megabus. If you … Continue reading
