Baltimore, the largest city in Maryland, is home to the Inner Harbor, an important seaport that has served the area since the 1600s. The Inner Harbor houses the Maryland Science Center, where you can learn about dinosaurs, and the National Aquarium where you can view exotic sea life and dolphins, as well as waterfront lodgings. You can also catch a baseball game at Camden Yards, or a Ravens football game at M&T Bank Stadium, before enjoying the Italian cuisine in Little Italy, or exploring the area's shops and bars.
Visitors to the city typically land at Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI), which is about 20 minutes away from the heart of Baltimore. You can pick up a rental car at the airport, or you can opt for public transportation, and take the light rail to the Inner Harbor. You can also take a short 40-minute drive to Washington D.C., the capital of the United States, where you can visit the White House or visit Arlington Cemetery.
Baltimore is home to Fort McHenry, which defended the Harbor during the War of 1812, and is where "The Star Spangled Banner" was written. High temperatures in Baltimore can range between the 80s and 90s in the summer, while winter temperatures can fall to the 20s or below, with chances of snow.
