Julie Bowen

Actress, Cool Mom

I love bringing my family to Baltimore.

I have three kids—and I want to show them everything. The sharks at the Aquarium. The dinosaurs at the Science Center. Chessie the paddleboat. The art at the Walters. And the whole wide world at the Irvine Nature Center. Because I want their days to be full of excitement, learning and fun. And I want their nights to be full of wonder and lightning bugs—just like mine were. Baltimore knows just how special a day out with your family can be.
