    Last updated 6 months ago

    Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to plan a romantic getaway for you and your sweetheart. Even if you don’t go too far from your Washington, D.C.-area home, it’s easy to get away from it all at a beautiful resort like Turf Valley. A romantic Valentine’s Day trip can be just what the two of you need to relax, refresh, and reconnect with each other. Keep reading for ideas for planning a Valentine’s Day trip to remember.

    Make it Fun
    Though Valentine’s Day is often associated with formal candlelit dinners, this doesn’t mean you can’t make your experience fun. Book a stay at a resort that offers activities such as golf, indoor and outdoor pools for year-round swimming, and a variety of other events. If your sweetheart’s idea of fun is more about being pampered than playing a round of golf, book a couple’s massage or even a full day of spa treatments for the two of you to enjoy together.

    Set the Mood
    You lead a busy life, and it may not be realistic for you to arrive at your hotel to set up a romantic scene before your date gets there—especially if you’re planning a surprise getaway. It’s always a nice idea to bring a bottle of bubbly with you to pop when you arrive, but it’s an even better treat to have champagne and snacks waiting for you in your room. Call your hotel ahead of time to inquire about having a special Valentine’s Day package in your room ready for your arrival.

    Be Attentive
    No matter what activities the two of you decide to do during your Valentine’s Day trip, the most romantic thing you can do is to pay attention to your sweetheart. If she’s in the mood for a relaxing weekend, you’ll find plenty to do without ever leaving the Turf Valley campus. If she is looking for an adventure, you can explore nearby Baltimore or Washington, D.C. Just listen to find out what she wants to do.

    Looking Back at the History of the City of Baltimore

    Last updated 6 months ago

    The city of Baltimore has been through a great deal since it was founded hundreds of years ago. Surviving the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and a massive fire that burned most of downtown, Baltimore is a resilient city with culture, sports, universities, and more. If you’re curious to know more, continue reading to trace the history of Baltimore.

    Named after Lord Baltimore of the Irish House of Lords, Baltimore was established in
    the 17th century. In its early days, Baltimore served as a tobacco trade hub with England. By the 18th century, Baltimore served as a granary, storing sugar produced by colonies in the Caribbean.

    Star Spangled Banner
    A few years after America declared war on the British, Baltimore was attacked. During the Battle of Baltimore, Francis Scott Key, a lawyer from Maryland, negotiated with the British for the release of an American prisoner. He later recounted his experience by writing “The Star Spangled Banner,” the poem that eventually became our country’s anthem.

    19th Century Growth
    Foreign trade flourished after the Revolutionary War ended, especially in the flour industry. With the construction of the Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) Railroad, Baltimore fortified its status as an epicenter for shipping and manufacturing. During this time, the skyline saw new monuments, churches, and other buildings.

    The 1904 Fire
    In 1904, a fire destroyed more than 1,500 buildings in downtown Baltimore in just 30 hours. Baltimore turned this catastrophe into an opportunity, allowing a better-planned city to emerge from the rubble.

    1980s Revitalization
    Urban renewal efforts intensified in Baltimore in 1979. New buildings including Harborplace, the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, hotels, and office buildings replaced warehouses and wharves. Brand-new stadiums, billion-dollar biotechnology parks, and a number of museums were built in Baltimore, further boosting its status as a world-class city.

    If you have business in Baltimore or nearby Washington, D.C., come to Turf Valley Resort of central Maryland. We have a golf course, restaurant, spa, and luxury hotel. Visit us online to learn more about what our resort has to offer, and call us at (410) 465-1500 for more information.
