Named after Lord Baltimore, the first Proprietary Governor of the Province of Maryland, this colorful, diverse city is the state’s largest and serves as its economic and cultural hub. Baltimore is known for its beautiful harbor; quirky, distinct neighborhoods; unique museums and the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital to the east and the University of Maryland Medical Center to the west. The city boasts a rich history from the ramparts of Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, to the inspirational legends at the National Great Blacks In Wax Museum, to the largest collection of Civil War locomotives ever assembled at the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum. If you want to fit in with the natives on your next trip to Baltimore you'll have to get an ear for the dialect they speak in many neighborhoods in "Bawlmer," as the locals call their city. The accent comes from the combination of Baltimore's English colonial settlers with influxes of Irish, German and European immigrants. It may help to know that locals call strangers “hon,” no matter their gender or age.
Baltimore is not so much a place as an experience. And after close to 300 years of history, this city can deliver more fun-filled family days (and romantic evenings) to make any vacation one you’ll remember forever. There truly is something for everyone; tour any of the great historic sites, museums and African-American heritage sites, attend professional sporting events (Baltimore Orioles, Baltimore Ravens and horse-racing at Pimlico), enjoy unique restaurants, shopping and much more. The beautiful waterfront at Inner Harbor, one of the major seaports in the United States since the 1700s, is one of the most photographed and visited areas of the city. From historic places and harbor cruises to family friendly attractions and fabulous neighborhoods, Charm City is one of the top tourist destinations in the United States
It’s been said that there are 50 ways to prepare crab in Baltimore and all of them are good. Whether dining in a fish house, a food stand or more traditional restaurant, you gotta try Maryland steamed blue crabs, but expect to get your hands dirty. Other top-shelf, fresh seafood, without cracking your own crabs, is easy to find in this water-front city. Little Italy will serve up traditional Italian classics like cannolis, tiramisu, biscottis and pastries. If funky and fun is your style, check out the eateries near John Hopkins University which caters to the college crowd. Diverse ethnic choices are available downtown and in most all neighborhoods.
Cafés are usually a world to themselves and Baltimore’s are no exception, offering plenty of variety in atmosphere, food, drink, and entertainment. Whether you crave cheaper java, specialty pastries or ethnic delicacies, Baltimore won’t let you down. Here are a few of the local favorites.
When the sun goes down, the fun is just beginning in Baltimore with a great choice of nightlife excitement from prime concert venues to excellent watering holes. Visitors staying downtown or in the Inner Harbor need not look hard for a good time. It’s easy to find everything from "big-city" dance clubs to the quirky and edgy. Fells Point is full of charming old buildings that have been restored, and many are now home to cozy pubs and classy cocktail bars.
Whether you prefer high-end boutiques, large modern malls, flea markets or just browsing, you will find lots of shopping opportunities in Baltimore. The Inner Harbor houses many familiar national retailers, while some of the older neighborhoods like Mount Vernon and Fell's Point are home to some fine boutiques and specialty stores. There are several great choices for antique-lovers at Antique Row, an entire block of historic antique stores. Perhaps the most distinctive shopping options are the public markets. Lexington Market, founded in 1782, is the city's oldest, but the Broadway Market in Fell's Point and the Cross Street Market in Federal Hill also offer many unique offerings and handmade gifts.
