Baltimore is one of the most influential cities in America. It is the home of the Ravens, the Orioles, crab cakes and, of course, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
With such a rich and diverse history, it's no wonder that the place nicknamed ”Charm City” gets so many visitors each year.
In addition to your concert, here are a few other things you can do during your visit to Baltimore:
American Visionary Art Museum
The American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) is located in the Federal Hill neighborhood of Baltimore. It has 55,000 square feet of exhibit space and a permanent collection of 4,000 pieces, including works by visionary artists Ho Baron, Nek Chand, Ted Gordon, Clyde Jones, Leo Sewell, Vollis Simpson and Ben Wilson. It also includes over 40 pieces of work from the Cabaret Mechanical Theatre of London.
B&O Railroad Museum
Located among Baltimore City's historic southwest neighborhoods, at the original site of the historic Mt. Clare Shops, the B&O Railroad Museum is recognized universally as the birthplace of American railroading. The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum possesses the oldest, most historic and most comprehensive American railroad collections in the world. The Museum's roster of locomotives and rolling stock represent the first, last, best or only of their kind in existence today.
Baltimore Museum of Art
Art has always had a strong hold on the city. The Baltimore Museum of Art houses work by some of the world's most honored artists, including Picasso, van Gogh and Renoir. With nearly 100,000 works, the museum promises to please art lovers of any age, skill or taste. It is couched between Charles Village and Remington, two northern Baltimore neighborhoods.
Baltimore Museum of Industry
The Baltimore Museum of Industry, located in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, is home to over 100,000 objects that document the often overlooked people in history-the workers, small business people and citizens who built America. The collections are reminders of Baltimore's great history, explaining how the city developed from a small trading post to a thriving, industrial center of manufacturing and commerce in a few decades.
Perhaps nothing is more revered in Baltimore than its baseball team, the Orioles. The team is more than 100 years old, and is one of the eight original charter franchises in the American League. Camden Yards, one of the “new old stadiums,” is located just a few blocks from downtown Baltimore, giving it easy access to visitors and residents alike.
Fort McHenry National Monument
One of the world's most popular pieces of music was created at this location. In 1814, Francis Scott Key, a professional lawyer and amateur poet, wrote what would become some of the most recognizable lyrics in the history of music: The Star-Spangled Banner. Today's wannabe tunesmiths can walk the grounds, summoning up the spirits of those who laid down more than just their quills.
This open-air venue plays host to jazz, funk and blues festivals, songwriting recitals by professional and upstart musicians, and performance art from magicians and dancers. As great as the acts are that step on stage, the price tag – free – is even more impressive.
Maryland Science Center
The Maryland Science Center, located in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, features three levels of exhibits, a planetarium, an observatory and an IMAX theater.
The National Aquarium, with over 1 million visitors a year, proves Baltimore is one of the great port towns of the world. This waterlife zoo is home to over 16,000 specimens, such as the bottlenose dolphin, roughtail stingray and bonnethead shark.
Ranked among the top five children's museums in the United States, Port Discovery Children's Museum offers three floors of interactive, educational exhibits and ever-changing programs for children ages birth through 10.
Reginald F. Lewis Museum
A major Inner Harbor attraction, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum is the largest African American museum on the East Coast. It highlights the history and accomplishments of Maryland's African American community, featuring exhibitions and resource centers.
Top of the World Observation Level
Top of the World is the perfect starting point for any visit to the city and provides a breathtaking view of Baltimore 's skyline, harbor and beyond. Located on the 27 th floor of the World Trade Center, this city attraction featuring a 360-degree panoramic view of Baltimore has stationed binoculars and photo-map guides to help guests learn about local attractions, hotels and neighborhoods.
Walters Art Museum
The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland is internationally renowned for its collection of art. The collection presents an overview of world art from pre-dynastic Egypt to 20th-century Europe, and counts among its many treasures Greek sculpture and Roman sarcophagi; medieval ivories and Old Master paintings; Art Nouveau jewelry and 19th-century European and American masterpieces.
