|An Amazing Family Weekend
Getaway to Baltimore, Maryland
Baltimore, Maryland is an
exciting place for a family weekend getaway. Finding interesting things
to see and do in every corner is an absolute certainty. The main attraction
for this family vacation is the Inner Harbor where most of Baltimore's
attractions and activities are found.
Although the Inner Harbor
is still a working seaport, it has been Baltimore's major tourist destination,
and one of the top family weekend getaway jaunts, for years. The water
taxis that transport people from one place to another alone is a sight
to see. The people of Baltimore take pride of their 300-year maritime history.
This is particularly evident in several of their attractions such as the
Baltimore Maritime Museum where your family can explore three historic
ships and an old lighthouse. Older kids will be thrilled to participate
in a special program where they discover the lives of young sailors at
the USS Constellation, an 1854 naval warship that is restored and docked
in the harbor for public tours.
The Inner Harbor holds a
significant number of museums. Aside from that, retail stores, live entertainment
and bars also found their home in the harbor. Restaurants such as J. Paul's,
Rusty Scupper and Gardel's Supper Club are must-tries. The Maryland Science
Center is an attraction for kids of all ages - that includes the parents,
of course. The younger ones will surely learn and discover a lot of things
from the very impressive interactive displays. The center has an IMAX movie
theater that exhibits amazing family shows and concerts such as U2 performances
in 3-D, giving parents the perfect opportunity to have a bonding moment
with their teenagers on this weekend getaway. Kids as young as 3 years
old are also allowed in this attraction.
Catch a weekend baseball
or football game at the Camden Yards in this family getaway and get into
the spirit and action of Baltimore. Also within the Camden Yards, you will
find Geppi's Entertainment Museum that showcases American pop culture.
This is an attraction that the entire family will enjoy. While the kids
visit their favorite characters such as Superman and Batman, parents can
revisit their favorite celebrity icons such as Elvis Presley.
One attraction you cannot
afford to miss on this family weekend getaway is the Port Discovery, located
just one block northeast of the Inner Harbor. The Port Discovery houses
Disney's Imagineers' designs and allow everyone in the family to create
their own artworks and produce their own movies. This attraction helps
enhance your children's, from toddlers to teenagers, imagination and unleash
the Steven Spielberg or Walt Disney in them. A popular exhibit in the Port
Discovery is the Miss Perception's Mystery House where the entire family
help a detective solve the mystery of the disappearance of a fictional
family by gathering clues as evidence.
The highlight of this weekend
getaway is the very family-friendly National Aquarium where your children
meet thousands of marine animals. What makes a visit to the National Aquarium
great is the close encounters with the dolphins where the entire family
can even have breakfast with them. In addition, the Aquarium holds wild
sleepovers for visitors such as a sleepover with the sharks. Reservations
are required for these tours, though, as many visitors want to have this
Baltimore is a city of guaranteed
amazing treats for everyone. With all the attractions and activities scattered
all over the city, Baltimore is indeed a great family weekend getaway destination!
