BALTIMORE AREA AND NEIGHBORHOODSBaltimore a city that is edgy, artsy, quirky, and inviting, and provides a charming, unique living experience. Baltimore has a rich architectural legacy with a mix of Art Deco, Federal, and Victorian styles (among others), which provides a perfect setting for all individual tastes. Baltimore is also known for its collection of distinct neighborhoods.
The city has something for everyone. With a total population of over 622,000 people living and working in Baltimore, it is the largest city in Maryland and serves as the area's primary cultural and economic center. Baltimore is also uniquely situated in the center of Maryland, so you are only a short drive to the beach, the mountains, or farmlands.
Historically a working-class port town, focused on steel processing, shipping, auto manufacturing and transportation, Baltimore now has a modern service economy, led by high-tech, biotech, medicine, and tourism. Distinctive restaurants, bars, businesses, and shops can be found throughout. The Inner Harbor - so important in the city's first days - has become the model for cities around the world. Several Fortune 1000 companies like Constellation Energy, Legg Mason, T. Rowe Price, and Stanley Black and Decker call Baltimore home.
With hundreds of identified districts, Baltimore has sometimes been dubbed "a city of neighborhoods," but is more commonly known as "Charm City." The talents of writers Edgar Allan Poe and H.L. Mencken, musician James Hubert "Eubie" Blake, and singer Billie Holiday influenced it; each called Baltimore home. Baltimoreans take pride in their city, boasting one of the most remarkable transformations in history. Yet, they continue to welcome and amaze visitors with "down to earth, small town" spirit and hospitality.

The National Aquarium features more than 16,000 animals, from sharks to a giant sea turtle, while the Maryland Science Center's highlights include two-story dinosaurs and interactive exhibits to keep the kids busy. The Port Discovery Children's Museum features more activities for the little ones, and, a short ride away, the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore's Druid Hill Park engages young and young at heart with the giraffe-feeding station and much more. And, if it's the unexpected you seek, you'll be talking about the oddities in Ripley's Believe or Not! for weeks!
Resilient Baltimore came back strong, beginning in 1979, with urban renewal efforts that rank among the most ambitious in the United States. Downtown and many other neighborhoods have been revitalized, with special attention given to the city's greatest asset - the harbor. Hotels, office buildings and entertainment facilities like Harborplace, the Maryland Science Center and National Aquarium (Maryland's largest tourist attraction) replaced dilapidated wharves and warehouses. State-of-the-art stadiums have been constructed nearby for the Baltimore Orioles and Baltimore Ravens. A few miles away, billion dollar biotechnology parks attract the world's leading scientists. The National Great Blacks In Wax Museum, American Visionary Art Museum, B&O Railroad Museum, and Frederick Douglass - Isaac Myers Maritime Park (among others) entertain and educate. (Frederick Douglass worked the docks in Fell's Point, Baltimore as a young man.)
Numerous events come to Baltimore every year, from the many farmer's markets, outdoor summer movies in Little Italy; to concerts and shows at Pier Six Pavilion and the Royal Farms Arena, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the Hippodrome Theatre; to the conferences at the Baltimore Convention Center (please don't hold BronyCon against us). And the local universities offer great music, theater, and sports events. There is always something to see and do in Baltimore!
