The American national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner”, was composed and this is probably what makes Baltimore famous. But by its determination and sense of reality, Baltimore is above all a deeply American city. Baltimore is a city of contrasts. Its dynamic seaport, which you can admire from the top of Federal Hill, the best viewpoint, is as vibrant today as it was in the 18th century. A favorite stop for cultural and heritage tours, the city is also famous for its charming neighborhoods and thriving culinary scene. Discover the most important landmarks such as the first Washington Monument or the first Catholic cathedral erected in the United States. Do not miss the old terraced houses and meet the friendly and proud inhabitants of Baltimore.
Where history, heritage and culture resonate. A visit to Baltimore can not be complete without a stop at the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, from where the defense of the city during the War of 1812 was organized. Discover Maryland’s African-American heritage at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, the Great Blacks In Wax Museum, and the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park. Edgar Allan Poe, one of the most famous inhabitants of Baltimore, forever marked the city; everything is explained at the Poe House and Museum and do not miss out on the writer’s grave. Enjoy two free tickets to the city’s major art museums: the Walters Art Museum, whose exhibits, artefacts, and jewelery span 55 centuries, and the Baltimore Museum of Art, home to the largest collection of works of Henri Matisse. To end your cultural walk, visit the B & O Railroad Museum and the American Visionary Art Museum. Browse adult personals ads in Doublelist Baltimore.
