Recreation, Culture & Entertainment Near Baltimore Area

Although downtown Baltimore is the city's main commercial area, Baltimore includes many neighborhoods with their own attractions. The city's architecture is displayed through its many historic buildings, such as the Phoenix Shot Tower, the Sun Iron Building, and the Baltimore Basilica, which is the oldest Catholic Cathedral in the United States. Though downtown Baltimore has much to offer, tourists often spend more time visiting areas such as the Inner Harbor and Fells Point.

The Inner Harbor is Baltimore's liveliest tourist spot. This bustling waterfront houses shopping centers, restaurants, museums, and hotels. The National Aquarium and Oriole Park at Camden Yards are two of the Inner Harbor's hottest attractions, though visitors can also enjoy locations such as the Maryland Science Center and the nearby American Visionary Art Museum. Many historic ships are also open for tours, including: the USS Constellation (Civil War); the USCGC Taney (Pearl Harbor); and the USS Torsk submarine (World War II).

Neighboring Fells Point, founded in 1730, is a tranquil counterpoint to the vibrancy of Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Though this historic district is only a short water taxi ride, or one mile walk from the Inner Harbor, Fells Point maintains its distinct charm with cozy shops, historic points of interest, and its share of local ghost stories. Visitors at Fells Point will enjoy a stay at the Admiral Fell Inn, a European-style hotel set within two (now attached) historic row buildings. The surrounding shops, restaurants and nightclubs include unique locations like The Horse You Came In On Saloon. Baltimore also offers several walking tours, such as the Fells Point Ghostwalk.

Known as the birthplace of the National Anthem, Fort McHenry is a popular Baltimore point of interest for both visiting tourists and local residents. Fort McHenry's rich history makes it a significant landmark for the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the American Civil War, and World War I. In addition to self-guided walking tours, Fort McHenry offers scheduled events such as twilight tattoos, concerts, and flag changing ceremonies.
