Local Information

Closest city is Baltimore

Baltimore is a diverse and complete East Coast city—though not always thought of that way by some who consider it the less attractive sister of Washington, D.C. It surrounds a major inland port on the upper portion of the Chesapeake Bay, with prosperous shipping, transportation, and manufacturing industries among others. Many areas of the city, particularly downtown, have experienced a vast renewal with a strong emphasis on historic preservation. The restored waterfront adjacent to the rather ordinary downtown is now a commercial and leisure destination with excellent museums, a first class aquarium and plenty to do. Urban residential areas close to downtown are known for their rowhouses, many dating back to the 18th century, spreading for miles and full of character and historic interest.
