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.

Stay on top of all the cool stuff happening Downtown, sign up for our newsletter. We bring Downtown events to your inbox twice a month.

In place of the traditional events calendar, we share events, entertainment options, restaurant news and promotion via Twitter at @DtBaltEvents and Instagram at @downtownbaltimore. Follow along for all the fun things to do in Downtown Baltimore.
