Baltimore - the colorful, diverse city that is Maryland's largest city and economic hub, is known for its beautiful harbor; quirky, distinct neighborhoods; unique museums and the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital to the east and the University of Maryland Medical Center to the west. With the rich history the city boasts however, it's amazing that Baltimore hasn't been deemed one of America's greatest historical destinations.
With hundreds of identified districts, Baltimore has sometimes been dubbed "a city of neighborhoods," but is more commonly known as "Charm City." The talents of writers Edgar Allan Poe and H.L. Mencken, musician James Hubert "Eubie" Blake, and singer Billie Holiday influenced it; each called Baltimore "home." Baltimoreans take pride in their city, boasting one of the most remarkable transformations in history. Yet, they continue to welcome and amaze visitors with "down to earth, small town" spirit and hospitality.
