Visit the Edgar Allen Poe House and Museum and see if you can recite "The Raven," explore Walters Art Museum, or tour Fort McHenry National Monument. The American Visionary Art Museum's inspiring exhibits are also worth a stop. If you're a fan of fish, visit the National Aquarium. Or if sports are your thing, go to M&T Bank Stadium for a Ravens football game or Camden Yards for an Orioles baseball game. When it comes to shopping, you can't miss the boutiques in Federal Hill or the local food stands at Lexington Market. At dinnertime, oysters, crabs, steaks, craft beer, wine, and more await in Fell's Point and Canton Square. As you look for Baltimore hotels, consider what you want to do while here.
Festivals and Events
When you search for Baltimore packages, also look up local events. The Preakness Stakes in May (and the Preakness Festival leading up to it) is by far the biggest event in Baltimore, as the horse races attracts enthusiasts from all over the world. The African-American Festival in June is a fantastic cultural celebration, and Baltimore Artscape in July brings in hundreds of thousands. The Fell's Point Run Festival in October also gets the city buzzing with excitement.
