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.
