Spring

Springtime in Baltimore means Orioles baseball and so much more. There’s no way you can visit the city in the spring without checking out a Birds game at the spectacular Camden Yards, or, at the very least, joining locals at a nearby tavern to cheer on the O’s. After the game, you may notice Baltimoreans defrosting in droves with a good springtime pub crawl or a day of shopping and noshing at the newly reopened farmers’ markets throughout the city, from downtown to Fell’s Point to Federal Hill.

The Baltimore region’s premiere event arrives in May every year—the Preakness Stakes, middle jewel of thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown. Kick off the weekend with Black-Eyed Susan Day on Friday, and join thousands of fans before Saturday’s big race at the InField Festival, featuring national music acts.

If you crave the great outdoors, follow the one-of-a-kind manmade creations along their trek at the American Visionary Art Museum’s annual Kinetic Sculpture Race, check out a food truck gathering or discover one of our hip, fun-filled neighborhoods on a walking tour. And what better way to say “hello” to spring than by smelling the blooming flowers at Cylburn Arboretum or Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Or, take the family to The Maryland Zoo to see the new arrivals and revel at events like the Bunny Bonanzoo and Zoo Bloom.
