Found on the juncture of the Chesapeake Bay, Baltimore is one of the largest and most significant cities in the Mid-Atlantic region. The history of Baltimore alone represents a huge, compelling narrative. For example, did you know that Baltimore is the city in which the lyrics to Star Spangled Banner" were written? That's just one of the connections Baltimore has to the fantastic history of the US. From the Battle of Baltimore in 1812 it's extraordinary to think of all of the ways in which Baltimore has changed both socially and economically.
When you combine that with the fact that Baltimore is the home of the legendary filmmaker John Waters who based and shot most of his films in the city who is primarily known for creating the Baltimore-centric hit show The Wire. But if history isn't really your thing find out if a Baltimore Orioles game is going on or check to see what the Baltimore Ravens are up to. Have some steamed crabs (a local hit!) or grab a drink at one of the bars that can be found in the Inner Harbor."
