Baltimore


Baltimore 2009 105

It took me a while to warm up to Baltimore. For the longest time I found myself there in the winter months when it’s cold and overcast. But through the years, it has slowly warmed up to me and now I have several reasons to enjoy my visits there…with the most obvious being the crabcakes! To be be perfectly honest, I usually stay right near the heart of all the activity near the Harbor. There is shopping and lots of places to eat down there. Plus you have the beauty of the water and the multiple docked ships that are all a part of the tourism of Charm City. There are also many cool museums and a plethora of places to walk to. Here are some pictures of my most recent visits. If I could recommend it, visit during the fall. I realize it’s not “crab season”, but the trees are changing and the cool weather make Baltimore a fantastic place to just hang out and enjoy it’s many charms…

  1. Thanks for the tour and for the eye-opener. I have always had the opinion of Baltimore as being sort of seedy and dirty. Don’t know why! Thanks for changing that opinion:)
