    The American Visionary Art Museum is solely dedicated to featuring what's called outsider art. It opened in 1994 and covers 1.1 acres. Inside, there are more than 4,000 pieces of artwork from varying artists including Leonard Knight, Judith Scott, and Mr. Imagination.   Each art piece is completely unique and raw, which makes it so unique. There also aren't any official curators that work in the museum. Instead, varying guests come and curate the many different shows and exhibits, which makes the museum even more interesting and different.

    You Should Know

    Though the museum is always open until 5 p.m. (except when it's closed on Mondays), they stop letting people in at 4:30 p.m. Children under the age of 6 get free entry!  

  • Visit the Babe Ruth Birthplace & Museum

    The Babe Ruth Birthplace is the home of Babe Ruth! It's only a few short blocks away from Oriole Park, where Baltimore's own Major League Baseball team, the Orioles, plays. Babe Ruth was born and raised in Baltimore in the late 19th century and went on to be one of the most iconic baseball players in history. Inside the museum, visitors can learn more about Babe Ruth's life and the history of baseball. There are exhibits featuring pieces from his house and old uniforms. If you're a huge sports fanatic (or even if you aren't) then you'll love visiting Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum.

    You Should Know

    Tickets don't have to be purchased online, though you're more than welcome to. Normally, visitors find that one hour is the perfect amount of time to spend perusing the museum.  

  • Learn history at Fort McHenry
    Learn history at Fort McHenry

    Fort McHenry served as an important fort during the War of 1812. It served as a defense against the British Navy, protecting Baltimore Harbor from destruction in 1814. It was later utilized again during World War I as a hospital. Soon after the war ended, Fort McHenry became a national park and was restored in the mid-20th century. Visitors go to the fort today to learn more about the history that has touched its walls. 

    You Should Know

    Usually, visitors spend about 1.5 hours exploring Fort McHenry. Don't miss out on the orientation film that shows every half hour after the fort opens. This is the perfect introduction to the fort.  

  • View the Washington Monument
    View the Washington Monument

    Baltimore's Washington Monument was erected from 1815 to 1829 and is dedicated to none other than Goerge Washington. It's located right between Washington Place and Mount Vernon Place and is the first monument in the United States to be dedicated to Washington. It's about 250 feet tall and is one of the city's most visited monuments. Visitors are welcome to come and explore the monument for free when it's open. Keep in mind that it does have limited hours so you'll want to check the times that it's opening before visiting.

    You Should Know

    Visitors are more than welcome to climb the tower at the monument for a small fee. It only takes about 20 minutes to get to the top and it offers a great view!  

  • See the Orioles play at Oriole Park

    The Orioles are the Major League Baseball team in Baltimore! They play in the American League East division and have been in the World Series championship three times, in 11966, 1970, and 1983. Locals in Baltimore love their sports and going to a game at Oriole Park is one of the best ways to get introduced into the city's sports culture. You'll feel just like a local when you're shouting from the stands! Oriole Park was built in 1992 and covers just shy of 20 acres.

    You Should Know

    If you want to guarantee admittance to a game, purchase your tickets well in advance! This is the perfect activity for families when visiting Baltimore.  

  • Visit the Maryland Zoo
    Visit the Maryland Zoo

    The Maryland Zoo opened in the late 19th century and covers around 130 acres of land. It's one of the most popular places to visit in Baltimore among families and animal lovers alike!  There are many different animals inside, including North American river otters, spotted turtles, black rat snakes, and trumpeter swans. The zoo is split up into different exhibits based on the habitat of the animal. There are exhibits called African Journey, Polar Bear Watch, Maryland Wilderness, and Animal Ambassadors.

    You Should Know

    When visiting the Maryland Zoo, it's important to watch children at all times and also don't feed the animals. The easiest way to get to Maryland Zoo is by driving. Be sure to grab a map of the zoo upon arrival so that you can easily maneuver yourself around the park! This is a great way to explore especially if you're on a tight schedule.  

  • Explore nature at Sherwood Gardens
    Explore nature at Sherwood Gardens

    Sherwood Gardens is a gorgeous park in Baltimore that's extremely picturesque. It's the perfect getaway from the city life of Baltimore and covers 6 acres of land. The park is technically private but is free to visit for any traveler or local. The park is most well-known for its amazing flowers, including magnolias, dogwoods, and tulips. Many of the flowers in the garden were planted here back in the 18th century, making it a truly historical garden.

    Best Time To Visit

    Arguably, the best time to see Sherwood Gardens is during the spring when all of the breathtaking tulips are blooming! There are usually around 8,000 planted. The park opens right at 6 a.m. - try to visit at your earliest convenience to beat the crowds that the afternoon brings.  

  • Visit the Edgar Allen Poe House and Museum

    The Edgar Allen Poe House and Museum is the very place that the famed writer Edgar Allen Poe lived in the early 19th-century! He lived in a tiny row brick house for only two years but the city prides itself on being the home to this American writer, if even for a short time. It officially became a museum in 1949 and has been a popular tourist spot ever since. Inside the museum are exhibits about Edgar Allen Poe's life, including some of his own artifacts such as his desk and dining set.

    You Should Know

    The Edgar Allen Poe house is tiny and therefore can get quite crowded later in the day. Try to visit when it first opens to fully experience the museum without lots of other people!  

Baltimore Cruises When To Visit

Quick Facts

Baltimore, like most cities in the United States, is a popular tourist destination during the summer months. However, it's still a great place to visit no matter the time of year! The shoulder seasons have great weather still, while the low season can be quite chilly. The spring and fall have great weather and reasonable prices.

  • Spring and Fall - September to November and March to May - Shoulder Season

    The shoulder season has decent weather and prices that won't break the bank when it comes to accommodation. Not many people visit during these months. The spring temperature ranges around 60°F while the fall ranges around 68°F.

  • Summer - June to August - High Season

    Most people will flock to Baltimore during the summer months when the temperature averages 87°F. The pro to visiting during the summer months is that this is when most of the fun festivals are held in Baltimore! Prices tend to be at their highest in the summer months.

  • Winter - December to February - Low Season
