With more than 1,500 animals representing 200 species, the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore’s Druid Hill Park is the perfect place to show your wild side. For life (mostly) under water, check out the National Aquarium, located on the Inner Harbor.
For other activities, Baltimore’s parks offer places to hike, bike, or just relax with a picnic. Many of them also offer great space for family reunions. Federal Hill Park offers spectacular views of the Inner Harbor. Patterson Park features one of the city’s iconic landmarks – a pagoda. Conservatories, arboreta, gardens and golf courses provide residents and visitors alike with beautiful spaces in public places.
