Baltimore’s fascinating attractions and entertainment options are second to none. Visitors can’t help but be charmed by the city’s diverse offerings.
Baltimore is one of the nation’s oldest ports: dating back more than three centuries, it was a major point of entry for immigrants from all over the world. Many key structures that were built in the early days of the city still stand today, a testament to the pioneering spirit and vision of its first residents. Our museums and historic sites transport you back in time and honor well-known personalities, celebrate significant industries and commemorate great events. Art museums and galleries serve as cultural centers, showcasing the world-famous works of masters such as Matisse, Van Gogh and Picasso, as well as eclectic creations from self-taught artists.
For the kid in all of us, there’s a zoo, aquarium, science center and nationally recognized children’s museum conveniently located in the city. You can mix learning with fun at these and other sites that offer hands-on activities.
When it comes to performing arts, our venues have just the ticket! Take in a show with the entire family at one of our spacious theaters that specialize in total entertainment. Smaller playhouses offer both traditional and offbeat shows in more intimate settings. And, with its internationally acclaimed artists and more than 100 concerts a year, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is not to be missed.
If you love shopping, Baltimore has everything you’re looking for. High-end boutiques, malls and specialty stores are here, along with antiques shops where you can find one-of-a-kind treasures that make a trip truly unforgettable.
Prepare the sports aficionados in your group to experience the thrill of competition. We have golf courses, sports arenas and playing fields that will host your tournament, as well as spectator sports ranging from horse racing to indoor soccer. The nostalgic Camden Yards complex features Oriole Park and M&T Bank Stadium, where the Baltimore Ravens clash helmets with NFL rivals. You can also root for the home team at one of several sports bars within walking distance of the two stadiums, or occupy your time before the big game by touring a sports-related museum in the area.
With such an array of unique attractions to see and exciting activities to do, members of your group will remember their experience in Baltimore for years to come.
