Baltimore, Maryland

A city of surprises and unique experiences makes Baltimore the charm of the Mid-Atlantic. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is one of the most photographed and visited areas of the city. It has been one of the major seaports in the United States since the 1700s and started blossoming into a cultural center in the 1970s.

Distinct in function and form, locals and visitors alike enjoy Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the surrounding neighborhoods that offer a variety of fine dining, cultural experiences and exciting nightlife. The National Aquarium in Baltimore houses more than 16,000 creatures in naturalistic exhibits, including a walk-through rain forest, an exciting live-action dolphin show and a new Australian exhibit. Be sure to see the treasures of Inner Harbor by touring the USS Torsk, the USCGC Taney, the Lightship Chesapeake and more. Visit the Maritime Museum and you’ll receive a discount for the USS Constellation, the only Civil War ship still floating today.

A visit to Camden Yards is just minutes away and, if you’re a true baseball fan, be sure to see the Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame exhibit and the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum as well. You can also visit the Sports Legends Museum which offers 22,000 square feet of artifacts and interactive exhibits, transforming Camden Station into one of the most spectacular sports museums in America. For the kids, Port Discovery Children’s Museum provides 3 floors of educational, interactive and hands-on/minds-on experiences to ignite imagination, inspire learning and nurture growth through play. When it’s time to dine, elegant gourmet cuisine, ethnic foods from around the world and plenty of fresh seafood from Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay abound.
