Spring Break

Last week was Spring break for the Naval Academy and the Princess’ school.  It was also shaping up to be a snowy, cold time in Annapolis. So we packed up and headed a little bit south to the cute town of Cambridge Md.  My hero and I have visited before but this was a first for the Princess. There was an indoor pool and nightly S’Mores.  She was happy.

Cambridge was a thriving small town at one time but had suffered from some rough days in the last decades. Slowly, people have rediscovered the lovely old homes and darling Main Street atmosphere and gorgeous views of the Chesapeake and a revitalized movement has taken over. The town had a much needed boost when the Hyatt Regency built a beautiful spa and resort there which hosted a US Republican Conference in 2007. It is also a designated Maryland Main Street community, a process created by the Maryland Housing Department to preserve and strengthen the history and heritage of small towns and increase tourism. Each time we return my hero and I are pleasantly surprised at the new stores and restaurants that have opened! Always a wonderful , relaxing experience for us in every season!


The beautiful Hyatt Regency.  The service and facilities are outstanding.


The cutest Main Street with lots of convenient parking. The Antique shopping can be dangerous to your wallet!


Especially at the Heart of Dorchester Antiques (located on Main St.)

Before we had a Princess in our lives, my hero and I enjoyed staying at quaint little bed and breakfasts like Cambridge House.  Quaint and a three year old just don’t fit together, but if you are looking for that romantic atmosphere, try this charming place…maybe I will see you there…maybe in ten years.


Bay Country Antiques is a little ways out of town but it is a must see! The place is huge and packed with awesome vintage and antique finds.


And last but not least…The favorite activity for the Princess…and me as well….nightly S’mores. Could life get any better?

  1. The Princess looks very, very happy enjoying those S’mores and beyond adorable too! Your Spring break sounds like fun. Such beautiful photos of intriguing places to discover next visit to Maryland. I lived in Baltimore back in the late 60’s and it has always been special to me. Thank-you for sharing this lovely post.
