Baltimore is all about accessibility and fun. It’s easy to get around town with our many transportation options (how many cities can boast “boat” as a viable option for getting where you need to go?) Have dinner al fresco in Canton and head to Camden Yards for a game in the Spring, or spend your day bike riding around town.
