Baltimore may be known for its down-to-earth charm, but the city with a Gilded Age past also knows how to pamper. Treat yourself to a steak dinner at (1) The Prime Rib, where the Art Deco décor takes diners back to former resident F. Scott Fitzgerald’s time. Reserve a black sedan from (2) Execucar, for getting not only to and from the airport, but also around town in style. For a truly unique souvenir, head over to antique shop (3) McLain Wiesand, where local artisans create one-ofa-kind, hand-crafted treasures to decorate your home.
Since its founding in 1729, Maryland’s largest city has become a popular destination for historic sites, world-class art and rowdy nightlife. Newbies should be sure to visit the (1) Washington Monument, whose cornerstone was laid more than 30 years before that of the D.C. landmark. In (2) Fells Point, stroll waterside paths, then take a cue from one-time local Edgar Allan Poe and belly up to the bar at one of the zone’s many taverns. Cultural and quirky, (3) The Walters Art Museum showcases paintings, sculptures, jewelry and a “Chamber of Wonders.”
Have kids in tow? You’re in luck, because Baltimore boasts a wide variety of sites geared to family fun. At the (1) B&O Railroad Museum, little ones explore the collection of locomotives, ride the carousel and delight in stories during bimonthly “Toddler Time” sessions. A haven of pop culture comic books and toys, (2) Geppi’s Entertainment Museum also offers intriguing scavenger hunts. It’s all about hands-on learning at (3) Port Discovery, where children ring up orders in a 1950s-style diner and look for a pharaoh’s lost tomb in 1920s Egypt.
