The news cycle has been wild lately. We’ve felt fear, then relief, following the story of the kidnapping (and rescue) of Tennessee girl Carlie Trent. We’ve laughed and rolled our eyes at the announcement that Rob Gronkowski will be on the cover of Madden NFL 17. We’ve devoured every story about Paul Ryan’s meeting with Donald Trump. And we’ve cared way more than we probably should about what’s happening with the cast of Empire.
Add all of that to weeks of rain, with only scant glimpses of the sun, and Baltimore is more than a little punchy.
Whether you’re #NeverTrump or #DropOutHillary, or you’re Feelin’ the Bern, you’ve got to admit, this election season, Baltimoreans need opportunities to escape from the news cycle like never before. Even watching the Orioles beat the Yankees isn’t quite enough, on its own, to cleanse our minds.
Fortunately, downtown Baltimore offers plenty of ways to escape – even if only for an afternoon.
Head to the National Aquarium in Baltimore to experience life under the sea – a location so remote, even the most tenacious political characters won’t be able to find you.
