Baltimore is a year-round vacation destination filled with experiences
that appeal to travelers of all interests. From free museums and
unforgettable dining experiences to strolls along the Inner Harbor and
afternoons at Camden Yards, Baltimore's attractions leave visitors
wanting more. Potential things to do include:

 

  • In the Neighborhood - Baltimore is a city of eclectic and bustling
    neighborhoods, and it is hard to pick just one favorite area of
    Baltimore. A few areas that visitors will not want to miss include
    hipster Mount Vernon, historic Fell's Point, funky Canton, quirky
    Hampden, upscale Harbor East, emerging Station North Arts &
    Entertainment District, and a slice of Europe in Little Italy. Variety
    is the key ingredient in Baltimore's neighborhoods - each location has
    its own unique personality, lively character and story to tell. Together
    the neighborhoods create the rich tapestry that makes Baltimore a cozy,
    interesting and real city with small-town charm.

 

  • The crown jewel of downtown Baltimore, is the vibrant and beautiful
    waterfront. The waterfront is home to dozens of shops, eateries and attractions, all
    within walking distance of more than 20 major hotels and the expansive
    Baltimore Convention Center. Take advantage of the diversity of
    Baltimore's downtown attractions.

 

  • Culture Haven, At the Right Price - With over 20 museums and galleries
    located in the heart of Baltimore, arts and culture lovers might have to
    add an extra day to their trip. Two world-class museums, the Baltimore
    Museum of Art
    and the Walters Art Museum, have permanently eliminated
    admission fees, so that the treasures inside can be enjoyed by everyone.
    Kids of all ages can step back and witness the history of pop culture at
    Geppi's Entertainment Museum or view nontraditional, original works by
    self-taught artists at the American Visionary Art Museum.

 

  • Bring Your Appetite - Baltimore is becoming a "can't miss" destination
    for culinary travelers in the United States. A city with a "no velvet
    ropes" policy, Baltimore's cuisine has a comfort vibe that is
    recognizable in restaurant service and cozy, yet upscale, atmospheres
    with diverse menus to please every palate. Dining in Baltimore provides
    a great variety of neighborhood treasures, from Faidley's famous crab
    cakes at Lexington Market to sampling celebrated chef John Shields'
    creations at Gertrude's in the Baltimore Museum of Art. However,
    Baltimore is more than just crab cakes - there is so much more to
    Baltimore's culinary scene, including locally owned restaurants where
    chefs are having fun with food, true farm-to-table experiences and the
    freshest Chesapeake Bay seafood around.

 

  • Take a Pass at Top Attractions - No one likes standing in line for
    tickets at one attraction after another. The Harbor Pass enhances the
    visitor experience by allowing quick access to Baltimore's most popular
    attractions at a discount providing both value and convenience. With the
    Harbor Pass, you can visit the National Aquarium, Maryland Science
    Center
    , Top of The World Observation Level, Sports Legends at Camden
    Yards
    and your choice of Port Discovery Children's Museum or the
    American Visionary Art Museum at a savings of up to 25% when purchased
    in advance by phone.

 

  • Shop Til You Drop - Baltimore's collection of boutiques, antique shops
    and art galleries are a shopper's paradise. From the perfect party dress
    to a unique piece of antique furniture or a contemporary sculpture,
    Baltimore's shops let every visitor take home a piece of the city. Don't
    leave without stepping foot in shops such as Trixie's Palace, fashion
    boutique Cupcake or art galleries such as the Light Street Gallery. Or,
    pick up the latest new handbag at Harbor East's Handbags in the City and
    window shop the quaint row of South Charles Street boutiques found in
    Federal Hill. If unique and original is what you seek, Baltimore
    shopping has it all.

 

  • African American History - A number of African Americans were integral
    in shaping the cultural, social, political and economic fabric of
    Baltimore and our nation. Their contributions remain a vital component
    to the city's heritage and even inspired a Broadway play - "Thurgood," -
    based on the life of Baltimore's Thurgood Marshall. Baltimore's rich
    African American history
    and attractions are one of the city's greatest
    draws. Top attractions include the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, Frederick
    Douglass
    - Isaac Myers Maritime Park Museum, the National Great Blacks
    In Wax Museum
    , the Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural
    Center, and the Dorothy Parker Memorial.

 

  • Meet Me in Baltimore - Baltimore is undergoing a major renaissance
    including groundbreaking growth in accommodations and meeting
    facilities, nightlife, and attractions, all just two feet away in this
    walkable destination. With the recent opening of the 757-room Hilton
    Baltimore Convention Center
    Hotel, Baltimore now offers more than 1,000
    committable rooms attached to the Baltimore Convention Center, all
    within walking distance to the shopping, restaurants and attractions of
    Baltimore's Inner Harbor.

 

  • FamilyMore - Moms, dads and kids alike can learn and play at family hot
    spots like Port Discovery Children's Museum, Sports Legends at Camden
    Yards, the National Aquarium and the Maryland Science Center. A variety
    of hotels and restaurants with family-friendly prices add to Baltimore's
    appeal for the entire gang.

 

  • A Cleaner, Greener, Healthier City - Baltimore is cleaner and greener
    than ever before. Baltimore has cleaned up its act with new citywide
    cleaning initiatives; expansions to parks and trailways; and a new,
    greener infrastructure. Rent a bike in the harbor and enjoy Baltimore's
    fresh air as you pedal along the recently expanded Gwynns Falls trail -
    spanning 15 miles and connecting more than 30 neighborhoods - or walk
    the more than seven miles of waterfront promenade surrounding
    Baltimore's picturesque harbor. Check out the new Hilton Baltimore's
    "green roof" which turns otherwise useless space into green space or
    stay at Baltimore's first LEED-certified green hotel, the Fairfield Inn
    & Suites
    , and hop an environmentally friendly ride on the new Super
    Shuttle buses that will take you anywhere you want to go - for free!

 

  • After you've worked up a healthy appetite, stop in for a bite to eat at the staggering array of
    restaurants, eateries and food vendors scattered throughout Harborplace
    and the surrounding area. With so many delicious options, we are
    confident that you will find something to satisfy any taste. But wait!
    Your Baltimore experience only begins at the Inner Harbor. Hop on the
    Baltimore Water Taxi when the weather is warm or set out on foot to
    explore other downtown neighborhoods and head off in the direction of
    your next adventure.
