Baltimore, Maryland: Come for the Crabs, Stay for the Kitsch

Baltimore's nickname is "Charm City," and it's an apt description of this revitalized East Coast port city. If you're in the mood for crab cakes, historical sights, and quirky culture, hop in your car rental, brave the local traffic, and travel to Baltimore.

Culture Buffs

Baltimore may be best known for its sports teams and its culinary staples, but it's also home to plenty of cultural hot spots. For great art, travel to the Baltimore Museum of Art. Located 15 minutes from the Inner Harbor by car, the BMA's collection ranges from Monet paintings to ancient Egyptian relics. Literature buffs may want to check out the Edgar Allen Poe House and Museum, a celebration of Baltimore's spookiest writer.

Root for the Home Team

Baltimore has two major sports teams: the Ravens and the Orioles. Baseball fans can catch a game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, which is located a mere mile from the waterfront. Right next to Camden Yards is M&T Bank Stadium, home to the Ravens.

Hon Culture

Baltimore's kitsch-filled local culture has been immortalized in John Waters films, such as "Hairspray" and "Crybaby." It's associated with beehive hairdos, pink flamingos, and the word "hon," and travelers in search of local flavor should drive their car rentals straight to Hampden. This area of Baltimore—a 13-minute drive from the Inner Harbor—hosts the annual HonFest in the spring. It's also home to eclectic antique shops, classic Baltimore diners, and hip bookstores.

The Inner Harbor

No trip to Baltimore is complete until you've toured the Inner Harbor. Explore the Maryland Science Center, which features hands-on exhibits and IMAX presentations. Right next door is the National Aquarium, home to tropical fish, sharks, and dolphins. History buffs will enjoy the Fort McHenry National Monument, and families will love the Port Discovery Children's Museum.
