Baltimore is an American port city that’s full of historical significance. And even though it has a reputation as a gritty, working-class place, Baltimore is steadily on the rise, offering international cuisine, and great museums. Visitors to Baltimore can begin at the Inner Harbor, the heart of the city and home to the National Aquarium and the USS Constellation. Stop in at a restaurant in the Harbor to sample some famous Maryland blue crabs. Then, make your way to Patterson Park, a beautiful 300-year-old park featuring a pagoda, marble fountain, swimming pool, lake, and dog park with amazing panoramic views of the city.

Learn about Baltimore’s history by visiting Fort McHenry, the site of a battle in the War of 1812 and the place where Francis Scott Key was inspired to write the Star Spangled Banner, America’s national anthem. Pay a visit to the Edgar Allan Poe House to walk in the footsteps of one of Baltimore’s most famous (and strangest) sons.
