Baltimore

Trip Planner USA  /  Maryland  /  Baltimore

City of Firsts

A major center for tourism and travel, Baltimore is famous as the city where amateur poet Francis Scott Key wrote the lyrics for the United States' national anthem. One of the country's major ports, Baltimore sits on the Chesapeake Bay--a popular holiday destination in its own right. The city claims more than 300 officially designated neighborhoods (some just a few blocks large), making the metropolis a conglomeration of distinct places to visit ranging from heavily industrialized to recently gentrified. The heart of the city is its historical harbor, home to the lion's share of Baltimore's tourist attractions, including one of the world's largest aquariums. The city banks on its financial industry as well as professional and business services, education, and medical services for commerce. Use our United States trip builder website to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Baltimore.

Where to stay in Baltimore

For quick and easy access to practically all of Baltimore's major attractionswhile on holiday, follow the example of most tourists and stay near the Inner Harbor neighborhood. Few cities boast such a well-defined tourist district, it shouldn't come as a surprise that all the major chain hotels in the city are located right in this busy neighborhood. If you prefer to stay in a quieter area offering a bit more local character, consider one of the city's outlying districts, offering affordable accommodations and plenty of dining and shopping options.
