Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland and is full of fun and interesting things to do. Residing on the Chesapeake Bay, visitors can enjoy the water along with an array of sightseeing, art, culture, museum and outdoor recreation options.
Baltimore is home to a thriving arts scene, from performing arts to galleries to creative institutions. Start at the Baltimore Museum of Art near John Hopkins University, where you can peruse 19th-century, modern and contemporary art in a space founded in 1914. The Creative Alliance is another top creative attraction that is well-known for holding hundreds of events each year, from shows to exhibitions to film screenings and beyond. You should also explore one of Baltimore’s numerous arts districts.
Baltimore’s most touristy area is its Inner Harbor neighborhood, and for good reason. It’s home to some of the city’s best museums and attractions, as well as a wide array of restaurants, although many are chains.
