THERE’S A REA­SON WHY BAL­TI­MORE’S NICK­NAME

is Charm City. Oh, sure, you may know about our famed In­ner Har­bor, with its glit­ter­ing ho­tels and renowned aquarium, but to dis­cover the soul of the city, you have to ven­ture be­yond the glitz. In neigh­bor­hoods like Fell’s Point, Fed­eral Hill, and Ham­p­den, you’ll find cob­ble­stoned streets lined with an­cient row homes, bub­bling arts scenes, and women with bee­hive hair­dos who call you, “Hon.” I’ve lived here since 1991 and have writ­ten about Bal­ti­more’s quirky char­ac­ters, fas­ci­nat­ing his­tory, and best at­trac­tions as a guide­book au­thor and magazine editor. Once you ar­rive, you’ll quickly dis­cover a town that wraps you up in un­ex­pected warmth.
