Baltimore's story is America's story.

Literally. That's what I love about this town. Everyone knows we have Poe's grave and Fort McHenry, home of "The Star-Spangled Banner." But we also have the first African-American-owned shipyard. Baltimore's railroads helped win the Civil War. And even today, Baltimore reflects a larger American story. Plus the crab cakes are unbeatable, the music scene is fantastic and we have a heck of a ballpark. Plan your visit today!

Watch as Mike salutes the men and women of Baltimore, who won a pivotal victory in the War of 1812, built ships like the Baltimore schooners that helped conquer the oceans, and laid the first track of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, which later helped preserve the Union during the Civil War. He also enjoys a great crabcake and the crack of the bat at Camden Yards.
