Lux­ury Trav­eler

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.

First-Timer

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.”

Fam­ily Trav­eler

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.
