Where to Stay

Rated the No. 1 hotel in Baltimore by TripAdvisor, Inn at Henderson's Wharf is an elegant boutique hotel that offers close to 40 upscale guest rooms. A peaceful retreat on the Fell's Point waterfront, the inn offers a great view of the recently renovated Under Armour campus. Under Armour, a massive athletic apparel company, has become ingrained in the city's fabric and sponsors the Baltimore Ravens practice football facility.

Speaking of football, the Hilton Baltimore is just a 15-minute walk to M&T Bank Stadium, home to those Baltimore Ravens. The pet-friendly hotel features a heated indoor lap pool and fitness center, as well as the casual yet upscale Diamond Tavern. If you're looking to really class it up, though, no place will suit you better than the Four Seasons Baltimore. Located in the high-end neighborhood of Harbor East, this soaring glass tower offers impeccable water views of the Inner Harbor, as well as world-class customer service.

Where to Eat and Drink

Keep it local at Farmstead Grill! Located on Boston Street at The Shops at Canton Crossing, the restaurant is known for its farm-to-table local foods. And if you're running short on time, you can stop by the Farmstead Shack, a little to-go stand out front. For those of you more interested in a liquid meal to feed your appetite, drop in to The Brewer's Art, which is located in a former townhouse on North Charles Street and is famous for its selection of homemade, Belgian-style beers.

Last but not least, an adventure in Baltimore wouldn't be complete without a trip to Little Italy. Amiccis on South High Street — a casual Italian restaurant, evident by its family-friendly atmosphere and old-timey movie poster decorations — is known for simple meals in massive portions.

What to Do

Looking for inspiration? Take a self-guided tour of Fort McHenry, a star-shaped fort that played a major role in the War of 1812, successfully defending the Baltimore Harbor from British invasion. It was the bombardment of the fort that served as the inspiration for Francis Scott Key's Star-Spangled Banner.

Next, head to Camden Station at Camden Yards, where Geppi's Entertainment Museum chronicles the history of pop culture in America. The privately owned museum features everything from the British rock revolution of the 1960s to the meteoric rise of multimedia in today's age. More family fun awaits at the National Aquarium in Baltimore's historic Inner Harbor. Children and adults alike can enjoy popular animal experiences such as Dolphin Discovery and Shark Alley. And don't forget to stop by the 1-year-old Blacktip Reef exhibit to say hi to Calypso, a rescued green sea turtle. He may be missing a fin, but he sure isn't missing his appetite, weighing in at a modest 500 pounds.
