Family-Friendly

If your family prefers urban activity to mouse-eared cruises, you’ll find few big cities as family-friendly as Baltimore. The entire area around the harbor, including Inner Harbor and downtown, will keep everyone happy. The area’s attractions (museums, historical spots, harbor cruises), connected public transportation (not to mention the free Charm City Circulator buses) and walkability (no need to rent a car!) make it a no-brainer for families traveling with children. Between the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, Port Discovery Children’s Museum, Fort McHenry and dozens more attractions, you’ll fill your itinerary without even trying. 

Should the parents manage to escape for a while, they’ll find cool pubs, world-class restaurants, eclectic shopping and luxury spa amenities to pamper and indulge.
