Baltimore Daycation | Pinterest Challenge

Pinterest challenged its users last week to create a place board of your ideal dawn to dusk daycation. I naturally chose Baltimore! With their new boards, you can map out places on Pinterest and link up with them on FourSquare. You can also check out and post photos people have already taken there, which is pretty neat when researching places to go.  I wanted to share it here with you lovely folks as well. You can check out my Charm City Daycation on Pinterest or read on.

 

Start your morning with Rise & Shine Yoga at Charm City Yoga in Midtown. If you are going to rise, you might as well shine. (Photo credit: Charm City Yoga Facebook Page)
