Berlin, Maryland voted the “Coolest Small Town In America” by Budget Travel is less than a 30 minute drive from Mad Men Beach House and the perfect winter activity when visiting Ocean City, Maryland in the “off season”!
We had our first experience exploring this quant little town in January of 2020. It was a brisk day but there is something magical about bundling up and hoping around from tea rooms to bakeries to bars to antique shops to art galleries! The window shopping is fabulous with a cup of hot coco! We were lucky to hit the last day of Restaurant Week in Berlin, Maryland! We tried tasty bites, treats and brews at multiple hot spots in the area including the Bakery Dessert Cafe, Burely Oak Cafe, and the Black Smith Restaurant!
We explored the Hotel Atlantic where “Runaway Bride” was filmed and hopped into locally owned retail shops like the Viking Tree! The art galleries were aplenty and fantastic. The artists really took the time to share their story and passion with you as you took in their unique gifts to the world! The Wooden Octopus and Jeffrey Auxer Designs were a highlight for sure!
Lastly what is a trip to Berlin, Maryland without checking out one of the most popular craft brewing companies in the country, The Burley Oak Brewing Company! With over 20 beers on tap and more in the cans, it is a must for every beer lover out there! We were lucky to get there on a “release day” for 5 new brews! It was hopping in that tasting room in more senses than one! I loved trying a flight of beers that were so diverse in flavor and colors it was impossible not to take pictures of it’s beauty!
