About Baltimore Tourism
One of only two independent cities in the United States, Baltimore has long been a historically important town. Located in the state of Maryland, Baltimore boasts its own harbor and convenient position near some of the most influential business, financial, academic and political centers in the country. After continued redevelopment in recent years, Baltimore is now very much a modern city, with a beautiful Inner Harbor waterfront and promenade. However, there is still plenty of history beneath the swanky high-rise buildings and skyline.
There are an amazing variety of museums and galleries in the city of Baltimore and within easy reach of Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), such as the enthralling National Aquarium and the Maryland Science Center. The performing arts scene is also excellent, with opera, orchestras, theaters and concert venues spread around the city. Outdoor enthusiasts will marvel at the preserved maritime and coastal areas, while Chesapeake Bay offers opportunities for boating, whale watching and fishing. Also nearby and to the south of Baltimore Airport are Annapolis, Washington DC, Arlington and Alexandria.
