Once a city of crime and decay, Baltimore has rebuilt itself into a safe tourist mecca of fun, history, and entertainment, its wonderfully quirky sense of humor intact.
A city in decay in the early 1970s, Baltimore has become a glittering tourist center of fascinating distinctive neighborhoods, with a downtown harbor that is full of activity and entertainment. The city is proud of its illustrious history, great sports center, and educational institutions that rank among the best in the world. This is a comfortable, likeable town... after all, what's not to like about a town that boasts Thurgood Marshall, Edgar Allan Poe, Babe Ruth, and John Waters as native sons? Come with me as I take you through "Charm City," a place with a whimsical, quirky attitude toward the vicissitudes of life.
