There are many reasons to visit Baltimore, but one of the most obvious is that it’s an easy stop on any East Coast road trip. Located in the Mid-Atlantic region, Baltimore is less than two hours from Philadelphia and Washington, DC, and 45 minutes from New York City. There are countless things to do in the area, including some fantastic museums and historical attractions.
An obvious choice for inspiration
Whether you’re a football fan, history buff, or simply a foodie, Baltimore is an obvious choice for inspiration. Home to a two-time Superbowl champion, the Ravens are consistently underrated by rival fans and the league. The city is also home to the legendary Edgar Allan Poe, who spent many years in the region. His house and museum is worth a visit. Make sure to reserve your spot, as the popular museum has long lines and can be crowded.
Activist community. The city is full of activists, and individuals who want to improve the world around them. Activists can gather in places like Red Emma’s, a worker-owned bookstore. It is a hotspot for these individuals and hosts discussions and panel discussions.
