Looking for something fun to do in Baltimore, MD? Here is our list of the fun things to do while visiting Charm City. Or, if you're a local looking for something different to do with friends and family!

  1. Take a Walking Ghost Tour with Baltimore Tours & Crawls!
  2. For adults...check out the Bars and the "Spirits" of Fells Point on a Haunted Pub Crawl with Baltimore Tours & Crawls!
  3. Fun for all ages can be found at the Baltimore Aquarium! The Jellyfish exhibition if REALLY cool! Don't forget to check out their website for special offers and deals!
  4. Another fun family-friendly place to visit is the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. They have special events happening all the time...For you locals, if you have not been recently, you should go back and check it out! And, they now serve beer!!! Just sayin'!
  5. The Baltimore Museum of Industry...a lesser known, but really fun place to go...especially with kids! Lots of hands on interaction displays!
  6. Check out dem O's! That's right, go to see the Baltimore Orioles play at Camden Yards...arguably the best ballpark in America! Have a Natty Boh (National Bohemian Beer) and a Crab Cake (or some of Boog's BBQ) and enjoy America's pastime! Just remember...during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner, it is customary to scream the "O" during the line "O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave" as loud as you can! This is not's just the Baltimore way!
  7. On the subject of sports and baseball, don't miss the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Sports Legends Museum! A must visit for the sports fan!
  8. Of course, go to a Baltimore Ravens game! The only professional sports team named after a poem (in this case Baltimore's own Edgar Allen Poe)! Nothing like being inside M&T Bank Stadium hearing the roar of the crowd as Joe Flacco and the rest of our Ravens do battle with the opposing team!
  9. Speaking of Ravens and Poe, don't miss the Edgar Allen Poe House and Museum! The house includes exhibits on Poe’s his life and death in Baltimore, poems and short stories written in Baltimore and significant artifacts including Poe’s chair, lap desk and telescope. You may leaving saying "Nevermore!"
  10. Take a walk through Fells Point, Federal Hill, Mount VernonCanton or one of our cities many other cool neighborhoods!
  11. Head on dewn (or down if you're not a local) to Hampden Village, Hon! Go see the REAL Bawlmer (or Baltimore, if you're not a local)! See the Baltimore that movie director John Waters features! Check out Hon Fest (of which our very own guide, Stacy Hurley holds the 2013 title of Miss Hon), Christmas Street (a holiday site to see!), shopping, dining and so much more. No trip to Baltimore is complete without a stop in Hampden Village!
  12. Have a real Maryland crab cake, pick crabs and eat some bay oysters...all washed down with Natty Boh, of course! This is a true delicacy from the Chesapeake Bay, right here in the Land of Pleasant Living! In our opinion, you have not lived until you've done this! And once you do, you'll be hooked! There are WAY too many great places to list. So, check out your favorite dining sites, ask your concierge, friends or one of our tour guides and we'll make sure you get your Bay eating on!
