South Jersey Locavore goes to Annapolis

The sign outside of VIVO! in Annapolis.

Ah, the weekend getaway without the kids. Anticipated for months, over before you know it. Brian and I spent this past weekend in Annapolis, Maryland, one of our favorite getaway spots. Annapolis is a wonderful destination for a weekend getaway. Great restaurants, shops, and people.

I thought I’d point you to a few of the things that as a locavore, I appreciated about Annapolis during this trip.

Hell Point Seafood (now closed) – I did a full write about this waterfront restaurant over on MNN, but I thought I’d give it a quick plug here, too. The restaurant serves local seafood (of course) as well featuring some other local foods on the menu. I had a salad of local mixed greens with goat cheese and a cup of cream of crab (Annapolis is the place to go for all things crab) soup that were really good. The menu changes seasonally.

Georgian House Bed and Breakfast, Annapolis, MD

Georgian House Bed and Breakfast

Georgian House Bed and Breakfast– I can’t rave enough about this cozy B&B or our hosts Ann and Tom. Breakfast featured seasonal fruits, and Ann likes to shop seasonal, local and fresh for her breakfasts when possible. Appropriate food is composted. Water saving devices are in the bathrooms and energy savings light bulbs are in the lamps. Baskets placed around the B&B encouraged recycling. I didn’t know any of this when I made the reservations, but I was pleased at all of the environmentally thoughtful efforts at Georgian House.

VIVO! Boutique (now closed) – This was a trip where we were there for the experience, not the stuff, so I had to pass over several items I saw in this boutique that focuses on local artists and sustainable clothing and jewelery. There was a lot of jewelery I would have liked to have walked away with. Perhaps if you’re in Annapolis, you’ll be able to do more than just window shop at this cool store.

eCruisers – We got a free ride on an electric vehicle courtesy of eCruiser’s restaurant shuttle. You can read about my eCruiser experience on MNN.
