    Terrific small size city for visiting. With the inner harbor, the aquarium and the train museum there is plenty too see and do. Small enough to walk around and see most of the sites

    Baltimore is very entertaining. The aquarium is very nice. There are great restaurants and hotels. Staying in the tourist area is important since there are parts of Baltimore that are not ver safe.

    Architecturally similar to Philly with some of the same urban problems, Baltimore is nevertheless hip and interesting... The harbour area is the main attraction, but check out the individual neighbourhoods. JHU might also be worth a look.

    I don't really know about what the character of Baltimore is like or what activities the city has to offer. My experience with Baltimore was getting completely and utter lost trying to navigate the incredibly confusing streets of the city. Based on this alone I gave the city a two star rating.

    I'm from here so I may be biased but Baltimore is great! The charm of a small town with lots of exciting things to see and do. Check out National Aquarium, take a stroll along the waterfront, or eat your way around town.

    People keep telling me that Baltimore is getting better, but when I passed through there a couple of times in the 90s, I wish I'd gone around.

    One of the main attractions here is the National Aquarium, which is quite large and very popular. It's in the Inner Harbor, which is also lined with shops and restaurants. If you're there on a Sunday, make sure to eat dinner early or find a restaurant not part of the shopping centers, which close around 6.

    What do Tupac Shakur, John Waters, the Star-Spangled Banner, and steamed crabs have in common? They all call Baltimore home. Situated on Chesapeake Bay, the largest city in Maryland has been nicknamed “Charm City,” although its reputation has been dimmed in recent years by a high crime rate. The average tourist has little to fear, however. Jazz or shopping on the Harbour, professional baseball and football, or a “Wire” tour of all the sites from the acclaimed HBO series, are all on offer as are a variety of museums and restaurants specializing in, yes, crab.

    A waterfront city famous for its crab cakes and baseball, Baltimore has gotten cleaner and more popular in recent years. It's definitely an interesting East Coast stop, although it's usually passed over for the Boston-New York-Washington D.C. corridor.

    As a native Baltimorean, I will always be in love with this city and my love has only grown in the years that I have been away. I would recommend that people venture outside of the harbor area. There is so much to see and do in the city and those that suggest otherwise are not giving the city its fair due. This is a city that is full of history and a culture all its own. Baltimore has a reputation among certain people of being dangerous and while I will admit that there are areas where this is true, I challenge these people to name one city that doesn't have bad areas. Baltimore has largely improved over recent years and is undergoing a great revitalization right now. I highly recommend you give this city a chance!

    Baltimore is a city that is rich in history. It is indeed a tourist's town. There's plenty to do here. There are tons of museums, parks, memorials, great resturaunts, sports bars, marinas, comedy outlets, concert halls, playhouses, markets etc. Whatever you are into, Baltimore has it, trust me. If you are a sports fan Camden Yards is the home of the Orioles and M&T Bank Stadium is the home of the Ravens. Both are places that you should not miss. Of course, the inner harbour is the true focal point of the city. Now don't get me wrong, this city has crime just like any other city in the nation, but overall it is generally safe. I would say that roughly 98% of the tourist attraction are in safe areas. Traffic can be somewhat upsetting at times, but if you follow the signs and the arrows on the streets, you should do just fine.

    Was once one of the U.S.'s most important ports, and has played a vital role in the early history of the country. It has of late gotten a bad reputation as a dangerous city, but it has really improved. The inner harbor is quite lovely, and the aquarium is worth a visit for its own sake. It is an easy day trip from either Philly or DC so try to fit Baltimore into your plans

    So many neighborhoods to explore. Please don't think that the HARBOR is all there is to do here!

    The Inner Harbor is wonderful, but the further you stray from the tourist areas, the scarier Baltimore becomes. That said, the city has some great restaurants and a vibrant history.

    The Inner Harbor is fun and there is a lot to do. Outside of the city sites, it isn't much. Not safe to go at night alone, except at the Harbor. Very good restaurants and hotels near the Harbor.

    This city totally sucks. It's looks like a third world country. The locals will rob you, carjack you, beat you up, and laugh at you. I'm embarrassed to have a place like this in America.

    Spent evening at Baltimore Harbour with family in Baltimore. Great place to go. Be prepared for long wait for restaurent so advise book ur table first then explore the harbour. Lucky we were with family from Maryland so this worked well. Make sure you visit Barnes and Noble bookstore nearby.
