MARYLAND TRAVEL GUIDE
An Amazing Family Weekend Getaway to Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore Hotels

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 extraordinary experience.

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!
