Week 27: Favorite spot in my city
The only city in the very rural area I live in is Oakland, MD. MY favorite spot is right in the heart of downtown Oakland.
This gorgeous footbridge that goes over the Youghiogheny River and leads to some amazing hiking trails and historical landmarks.
I love anything old fashioned, retro, vintage, classic… there’s this charm to downtown Oakland, and if it wasn’t for the vehicles, it would look like something from the 40’s or 50’s. They restored a lot of the old buildings, but kept the “old charm” look. Not far from the bridge is an antique store called Englanders. In the back of Englanders is an old fashioned Diner called Dottie’s Bar & Grill. Now, “bar” does not mean alcohol, it actually means a bar that you sit at and watch the cooks grill and prepare your food. There are also tables if you don’t want to sit at the bar. Dottie’s has amazing breakfasts, great sandwiches, and old fashioned milk shakes!
Walk a little further up Main Street to the old B&O Railroad Station and Museum. Once again very old looking and charming. If you ever get a chance to stop by let me know, and I’ll make sure you see all of the beautiful sights, shops, and restaurants our small town has to offer!!
None of these pictures are mine, I got them all off google, but I plan to take lots of pictures in the near future, and I will be sharing them all with you!!
What’s your favorite spot in your city?
