About Baltimore

Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland and the center of a metropolitan area of 1.5 million people. Located on the Chesapeake Bay, the city is a melting pot of cultures and neighborhoods, ranging from metal and glass skyscrapers to brick row houses to the famous Inner Harbor.

Baltimore offers cultural opportunities, professional sports, outdoor activities and much more. If you enjoy the surf and sand, Baltimore is within driving distance of beaches and ocean resorts. Or if you’d prefer, head to the mountains. Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York are also an easy drive or train ride away.
