About Baltimore

Baltimore, also known as "Charm City", is comprised of culturally rich neighborhoods and hundreds of distinct districts. 

Established as a seaport settlement in 1729, Baltimore's harbor has been the focal point for several historical events and characters in American History, including Edgar Alan Poe, Frederick Douglass and Thurgood Marshall. The harbor is now home to museums and shops, the National Aquarium, and Fort McHenry, the site that inspired Francis Scott Key to pen "The Star-Spangled Banner." Neighboring districts combine the urban allure of museums, live music, street art, theater, bars and restaurants with the quieter charms of cobble stone streets, tree-lined parks, and coffee shops, to make it our favorite ‘little-big city’.

“ I love going to the farmers market under the 83 overpass every Sunday. It's the best market I've ever been to! People are super friendly and you're buying the freshest produce directly from the farmers. ”
