Affordable one-way flights to Baltimore-Washington

Baltimore

Baltimore is like an American Venice. Set on the waterfront with plenty of aquatic fun, cultural sites and great places to relax and dine, a holiday to Baltimore sounds just what you need. Most of Baltimore centres around the gorgeous Inner Harbour. Here you’ll find the magnificent historic ships, fine restaurants, the city’s Aquarium and science museum, plus all sorts of shops, bars and cafes. If you love being by the water, this is the spot to visit! While you’re sightseeing around Baltimore, make like the locals and take the famous water taxi to get around. There are dozens of stops all around the city so you can avoid the bustle of bicycles, pedestrians and cars and glide across the waves to get to your destination.

But first, Inner Harbour is where you’ll find Baltimore’s National Aquarium. Amongst the gallons of sea creatures, you can see jellyfish, touch stingrays or even catch a popular dolphin show. Back on dry land, The Walters Art Museum is home to a mix of fascinating art pieces including a rare Raphael painting, medieval armour, creepy taxidermy, Egyptian mummies and much much more. If that doesn’t satisfy your quirky side, check out the weird and wonderful American Visionary Art Museum where creativity has no limits. If you’re in the mood for a slice of history, check out the Fort McHenry National Monument. This historic site and its little museum tells a wonderful story of this centuries old fortress. Make sure to climb to the top of the fort to see an incredible panoramic view from the walls.
