Fam­ily trav­eler, lux­ury seeker, ro­man­tic or all three? We’ve got just the itin­er­ary, tai­lored to suit your travel style.

Fam­ily Trav­eler

Bal­ti­more can be a grown-up town, but its play­ful per­son­al­ity hints at pro-kid lean­ings, too. Even in the off sea­son, there’s plenty to see at the (1) Mary­land Zoo in Bal­ti­more. Tots spot African pen­guins (es­pe­cially at meal time: 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.), gi­raffes and po­lar bears. At the In­ner Har­bor, (2) Uno Pizzeria & Grill offers kids more than their own menu; they get to make their own pizza pie. On the site of a for­mer oys­ter can­nery, the (3) Mu­seum of In­dus­try tells the story of Bal­ti­more’s man­u­fac­tur­ing past with in­trigu­ing dis­plays and hands-on demon­stra­tions.

Ro­man­tic

In the city where Edgar Allan Poe fell in love, there’s plenty of in­spi­ra­tion for amorous out­ings. At the (free) (1) Bal­ti­more Mu­seum of Art, lovers gaze at beau­ti­ful paint­ings and sculp­tures and the world’s largest col­lec­tion of works by Henri Matisse. In (2) Patterson Park, cou­ples take self­ies by the lovely Vic­to­rian Pagoda (above) or glide along hand-in-hand on the ice rink (through March 30). Can­dle­light and live opera singers set the mood for ro­mance at chef Ric­cardo Bo­sio’s (3) Sotto So­pra, where din­ers also fall in love with house-made pas­tas like ravi­oli “dell’amore.”

Lux­ury Seeker

This city of Gilded Age man­sions offers many ways to en­joy the good life. The fa­ther-and-son team at (1) Christo­pher Schafer Cloth­ier’s en­tices the fashion-con­scious with be­spoke suits made with the lat­est fab­rics from Lon­don’s Sav­ille Row and Jermyn Street. Art afi­ciona­dos find fine prints by Kirst, Kusama and Stella at (2) Goya Con­tem­po­rary, plus up-and-com­ers through the gallery’s Goya-Girl Press. At (3) Mag­dalena restau­rant in­side The Ivy Ho­tel, a man­sion-turned-luxe lodg­ing, chef Mark Levy plates up luscious dishes like bu­ca­tini with crab and scal­lops.
