About Baltimore

Baltimore has been a city since 1729 and remains a busy seaport on the eastern U.S. coast. Located near the Appalachian Mountains and close to a lot of water on the coast, this is one city that has a lot to offer in terms of outdoor adventure.

Since this city is not a major tourist destination and is not a favorite of Americans looking for hot vacation spots, it is usually makes a very enjoyable, relaxing location for a trip. It may not have the huge theme parks, beaches, and other attractions offered by some of the other big cities in the U.S., but it is quite welcoming for those who want a safe place to kick back and relax, or families looking for adventure and fun without crowds of people.

Some of the most popular destinations for vacationers and other travelers happen to be places that the locals also enjoy on a routine basis. For instance, many visitors enjoy the National Aquarium, Maryland Science Center, and a variety of museums and art centers located around the city.

There are also some great parks throughout the city which are playards for the locals and lucky visitors who take the time to discover them. Many feature large ponds and fountains as well as walking trails and access to natural areas for bird watching and other outdoor activities.

Mostly, Baltimore is known as a major seaport with some of the most delicious seafood restaurants in the country.
