The Baltimore Rundown
Located along the Patapsco River in central Maryland, Baltimore is a city that boasts historical roots that go back over 300 years. With its roles in the American Revolution, the War of 1812 and the Civil War, Baltimore is not only one of the oldest, but most exciting places to visit. There are a lot of ‘firsts’ in this city due to its rich history. From the first original Washington Monument to the first fort, Fort McHenry, tourists will have to make several return trips just to see it all.
New meets old with the National Aquarium and the Port Discovery Children's Museum. There is also Oriole Park at Camden Yards for sports enthusiasts to enjoy watching a game of baseball. Those interested in art will be visually inspired by grand museums like the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Visionary Art Museum and Walters Art Museum. Whether it is a weekend trip from Washington DC or a weeklong vacation from across the ocean, Baltimore hosts a wide array of things to do, see and learn.
