Washington, DC, and Colesville, MD

Location: Washington, DC, and Colesville, Maryland, USA
Visited: June 2012

Though they're not actually all that near to each other, I put these two trips on the same spread because I visited them on the same day.  We started the morning with a muggy tour of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, ate a delicious pizza lunch, then wandered up to Maryland to ride the trolley at the National Capital Trolley Museum.  I had a grand time, but I think I'll wait to visit Kenilworth again until it's a little bit cooler out.

Champaign, IL

Location: Champaign, Illinois, USA
Visited: June-July 2012

Sometimes it feels like my hometown was holding out on me, because I've certainly discovered a lot more new awesome things about it since I left than I ever knew about when I was living there full time. The top page is mostly dedicated to food - I try to eat at places we don't have in Virginia whenever I visit - while the second spread is all about The I.D.E.A. Store, which is one of the most amazing stores ever.  If you're ever in the area, be sure to take a gander. You never know what you'll find there.
