Earlier this month, Visit Baltimore hosted a group of journalists for a familiarization press trip timed to coincide with the Baltimore Book Festival. Press in attendance included:
- Danielle Bauter, Freelancer for Saveur, Wine Enthusiast, Atlas Obscura, and Budget Travel
- Garin Pirnia, Freelancer for USA Today, and Mental Floss
- Alex Temblador, Freelancer for Lonely Planet, Fodor's Travel, VICE, and Bustle
In addition to taking in the festival experience, the group toured Baltimore's culinary scene at Cinghiale, Cosima, Dooby's, The Broadway and Cross Street markets, and Topside. They sipped cocktails at the literary-themed Bluebird Cocktail Room and The Owl Bar, explored the American Visionary Art Museum with founder and director Rebecca Alban Hoffberger, and shopped local bookstores before departing the city. Thank you to the generous partners who hosted the group during their trip; we could not succeed in these efforts without your support!
