Must See Places in Baltimore, MD

Top places to visit in Baltimore

Baltimore is Charm City. And with more than 250 neighborhoods there are plenty of opportunities to explore, eat, play and learn. We’ve compiled a few of my favorite locations below to help you with your next weekend out!

The Walters Museum:

The Walters Museum is located in the Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore. With a collection that spans 7 millennia and over 36,000 objects, The Walters Museum is a phenomenal resource for learning about human culture and creativity. Notably, The Walters Museum intentionally engages children through their exhibits with special activities, treasure hunts, and more.

The National Aquarium:

The National Aquarium is the most frequently visited attraction in Baltimore. With massive Atlantic and Pacific coral reefs, a 5-story high tropical rain forest, sharks, dolphins and hundreds of other aquatic species, there is no doubt as to why. Located right next to the ChapmanPT clinic within Grind Gym in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore, it’s a must-see in Baltimore.

The Maryland Science Center:

Located not far from the National Aquarium in the southwest corner of the Inner Harbor is the Maryland Science Center. This center in particular is mostly geared towards young visitors but also will inspire adults with their varied exhibits exploring space travel and physics, as well as it’s IMAX theatre. Children will be particularly amazed by the dig pits where they can excavate dinosaur fossils, the live demonstrations, and different DIU workshops for all ages. Voted “Best Place for Families,” you can’t miss with The Maryland Science Center.

Oriole Park at Camden Yards:

Home to the Baltimore Orioles (also known as The Birds or The O’s,) Camden Yards is a beautiful park for baseball fans. Only 2 blocks from the birthplace of Babe Ruth, Oriole Park is located right in the heart of Downtown Baltimore and has very reasonable pricing for seating, allowing for any budget to visit and enjoy a game. Before the game, make sure to check out Pratt Street Ale House, Mothers in Federal Hill, Diamond Tavern at The Hilton, or The Orioles Grille at The Sheraton, if you’re looking to eat and drink, will fellow baseball fanatics. If you’re looking for something a little more, contact them to schedule a tour to get an inside look at the dugout, control room, press level, and club level suites.

American Visionary Arts Museum:

Definitely not your standard art museum. Nothing about AVAM is standard or expected and that’s what makes it wonderful. AVAM displays the work of self-taught artists from around the world spanning cultures, paintings, and drawings, but also mosaics, modern art, and exhibits that defy description. AVAM is truly a celebration of the free spirit and is well worth a visit.
