What to Expect When Visiting Baltimore

Many businesses are ready and eager to welcome you to Baltimore, but public health is our top priority. We ask for your patience and understanding as we all adjust to the new normal. Businesses, locals and visitors alike are strongly advised to adhere to best practices for health and public safety, including appropriate social distancing, regular hand-washing and mask-wearing.

Please stay up-to-date with Baltimore City public health recommendations prior to and during your visit. And please check the websites of individual hotels, restaurants, museums and attractions for the latest hours of operation, reservation requirements and safety protocols before you visit. Some restaurants and attractions are now requiring proof of vaccination for entry.


Top Things to Do

Safely explore what's open in Baltimore.

Parks, trails and monuments are a great way to take in the sights and learn about Baltimore. While some structures are still closed for visitation, the scenic grounds, vast green spaces and waterfront walking trails are open for exploration.

Museums, attractions, casinos and gyms may be open with reduced capacity. Some specific closures and restrictions are still in place. Please confirm hours of operation and reservation and online ticketing requirements before visiting these establishments

Restaurants, bars and other food service establishments are currently open for both indoor and outdoor dining with limited capacity. Our comprehensive Dining at a Distance aggregator details what restaurants are offering including carryout and delivery. And don’t forget to tip! Can’t make it in person? You can still support our local restaurants by purchasing gift cards, writing a positive review and engaging with them on social media.

Accommodations from trendy boutique to quaint B&Bs to waterfront luxury hotels are open and ready to welcome you, with upgraded health and safety protocols.

Seasonal events, festivals and large gatherings continue to be re-envisioned into safe experiences. Please check in with event organizers for the most up-to-date event status. Check our events calendar for virtual and safe activities.

GBAC STAR accreditation is being implemented by businesses across the city who are committed to new standards of sanitation and cleanliness. In order to earn accreditation, facilities must complete a thorough training to establish a comprehensive system of cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention for their staff, their facility and their visitors.
