One Day in Baltimore: Travel Itinerary


Charm City, Clipper City, Smalltimore... Whatever you know it as, if you've never been to Baltimore, you are missing out! Being located right on the Chesapeake Bay and the home to NFL (Baltimore Ravens) and MLB (Baltimore Orioles) teams, there's never a lack of things to do... and eat! There is tons of outdoor space to enjoy the views of the city and bay and plenty of activities to match. We had one day to do, see, and eat as much as possible, so if you find yourself in Baltimore on a limited schedule, this is the itinerary for you!
