Fresh seafood, an abundance of family focused activities and one of the best baseball stadiums around is enough to convince us that this city has to be explored. Here are our top twelve things to see and do in Baltimore.

12. Fell’s Point

Fell’s Point is home to over 350 original colonial period buildings, historic homes and cobblestone streets. Pubs, unique shops and restaurants line the Historic District which during the day is the perfect place to spend antiquing; and the night partying. Start off at the visitor’s centre where educated employees will give you a quick history lesson on this waterfront town. Artifacts and brochures about the area are also found in this historical building that once housed trolleys and horses.

Arrive via water taxi and head to Stuggy’s; the best place to grab a hot dog and load it up with crab mac’n’cheese. Or head to The Horse You Came In On Saloon, one of Edgar Alan Poe’s favorite drinking spots. For the kids and the kids-at-heart try your hand at the Pirate Ship cruise where you can battle it out. Try the oysters at the Thames St Oyster House. Walk, shop, dine, catch some outdoor live music and explore the beautiful historic town of Fell’s Point while you are in Baltimore.
