After Charlottesville, we decided to stop in Baltimore. We ended up an hour behind schedule because of daylight savings, but it didn't matter because the train was five hours late! We decided not to wait and took the Greyhound bus instead.

One of the reasons for going to Baltimore was to check out the National Aquarium. It's definitely an impressive facility but I think we still like Monterey better (for its interactive child stuff and its strong environmental focus). Nevertheless, we enjoyed the Baltimore aquarium and it's certainly worth a visit if you're in the area. The dolphin show (one of their highlights) was closed due to renovations but I have mixed feelings about dolphins in captivity anyway. (I don't worry so much about fish!)

We also really liked the big Barnes and Noble in an old power plant building. Cool old building, nicely restored.
