ONLY 10 MILES FROM DOWNTOWN BALTIMORE
Downtown Baltimore is a major travel destination welcoming 12 million business and leisure visitors each year. Most sites and neighborhoods are within walking distance of each other, and this makes Baltimore an ideal place for business as well as pleasure.
Charming historic neighborhoods surround the Inner Harbor, each offering their own character, history and cuisine. Little Italy is a pasta lover's paradise with outdoor movies on summer weekends, festivals of San Gabriel and St. Anthony, and two bocce ball courts. Fell's Point is the oldest section of Baltimore and still has the feel of an old English neighborhood with cobblestone streets, unique shops and plentiful pubs and restaurants. And, there's Harbor East, a bustling waterfront stop with its own attractions, retail shops and restaurants.

Baltimore played a crucial role in the War of 1812, when soldiers, stationed at Fort McHenry, successfully held off a British attack on Baltimore. That victory for Baltimore was commemorated in a poem by Francis Scott Key and is now our national anthem.
