Baltimore & Surroundings
Baltimore’s easy to get to and easy to get around. And nearly everything is “just two feet away” from the spacious Baltimore Convention Center and the famed Inner Harbor. Great restaurants, world-class attractions and museums and outstanding sports venues are part of the city’s compact, convenient “convention community.”
Get here. Get around. It’s Easy
Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport easily connects Baltimore with the rest of the world. Once guests are here, they can take the light rail or taxi from the airport or Amtrak’s Penn Station right to the heart of downtown. From there, the Baltimore Convention Center, hotels and attractions are within walking distance, a quick Water Taxi or a free Charm City Circulator bus ride away. And, look for our Downtown Partnership and Waterfront Partnership Guides and more than 700 Certified Tourism Ambassadors®—they are here to assist you.
Savor our Cuisine
We’re known for our crab cakes. But with culinary accolades in Gourmet, Food & Wine and Bon Appétit, Baltimore has emerged as a hot spot for foodies. Whether it’s a casual bite at one of the city’s restored historic markets or four-star farm-to-table cuisine, even a crab feast to remember, Baltimore’s culinary scene is not to be missed.
Arts and culture for every taste
Not only does Baltimore have several cultural attractions a few steps from each other, but many of these attractions are uniquely Baltimore. You’ll find museums for all interests, such as the American Visionary Art Museum, The Walters Art Museum and the Baltimore Museum of Art, featuring the world’s largest Matisse collection; the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum, Geppi’s Entertainment Museum , the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum, the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum and so many more. In the evening, the art scene comes alive with live theater, the symphony and opera.
Excitement around every corner
Discover Baltimore’s electrifying nightlife in the unique and diverse neighborhoods that surround the Inner Harbor. Whether it’s a relaxed lounge in Mt. Vernon, corner pub in Fell’s Point or dance floor that doesn’t stop in Federal Hill, Baltimore’s neighborhoods are filled with the after hours fun to suit any taste. Plus, when the sun sets, Baltimore’s Power Plant Live! features life music from national acts with sizzling sounds.
