Destination guide

Welcome to the heart of Maryland

From its historic neighborhoods to its world-famous crab cakes, Baltimore is one of America's most iconic cities. There are stellar museums to explore, vibrant nightlife to enjoy and plenty of Chesapeake charm to soak up _ especially if you snap up Baltimore vacation rentals housed in heritage lofts and warehouses. Locals have nicknamed their city "Bawlmer" and while it has gritty working-class roots, Baltimore is also a trend-setting city. It treats visitors to innovative science attractions, farm-to-table restaurants and Maryland's best boutique shopping.

Things to do

Sea creatures and star-spangled banners

History buffs won't want to miss Fort McHenry. Back in 1814 the stronghold successfully deterred an attack from the British navy during the infamous Battle of Baltimore. After witnessing the bombardment, Francis Scott Key famously saw America's star-spangled banner fluttering "by the dawn's early light" And thus, America's iconic national anthem was born. Art lovers will be beguiled by the medieval showpieces and contemporary paintings at the Walters Art Museum _ just one of Baltimore's many cultural attractions. Here with the kids? Treat them to a visit to the National Aquarium, which is considered one of the USA's best, and is home to dolphins, sharks and other majestic creatures of the deep.


Neighborhood-hopping in Baltimore

With its red brick walkways, Baltimore's Inner Harbor is brimming with character. While it was once a rundown industrial district, today it's lined with seafood restaurants, trendy boutiques and plenty of characterful Baltimore vacation rentals. From narrated tours to sunset sails, harbor cruises are a great way to see Baltimore from a different perspective. Fell's Point is another iconic district steeped in nautical charm. Today its 18th-century storefronts house a mix of oyster bars, historic taverns and al fresco cafes. Baltimore takes its sports seriously, so why not score tickets to an Orioles baseball game or a Ravens football match?


Gear up for summer festival season

Baltimore is at its prime in summer, when the city enjoys warm weather and an endless lineup of events and festivals. Temperatures can climb into the 90s so be prepared for the occasional heat wave. Spring and fall usher in cooler temperatures and thinner crowds. For shorter lines and a relaxed atmosphere consider visiting in winter. Temperatures can dip below the 30s so be sure to pack plenty of layers. While the city can experience downpours at any time of the year, there are plenty of "rainy day" attractions to keep you entertained.

Natural features

Seafaring in Chesapeake Bay

Thanks to its coastal setting, Baltimore has a long history as a major American seaport. It sits on the Patapsco River, just a few miles from Chesapeake Bay. Lovers of coastal vistas will be spoiled for vantage points during their regional explorations. And, while it's a sprawling urban playground, you'll also find plenty of greenery near Baltimore vacation rentals.
