Many visitors come to the city to try their luck at Horseshoe Casino, but things to do in Baltimore include a range of different activities away from the roulette table. For a slice of Baltimore history, visit Fort McHenry National Monument, which played a major role in defending Baltimore Harbor during the siege of 1812. In addition to offering insight into the life of the influential Garrett family, Evergreen Museum & Library attracts art aficionados with its Gilded Age architecture and lavishly furnished rooms. To spend some quality time with the family, tour Oriole Park at Camden Yards for a behind-the-scenes look at the history of baseball in Baltimore, or check out the educational programs at National Aquarium.

Few cities boast such a well-defined tourist district, it shouldn't come as a surprise that all the major chain hotels in the city are located right in this busy neighborhood. If you prefer to stay in a quieter area offering a bit more local character, consider one of the city's outlying districts, offering affordable accommodations and plenty of dining and shopping options.
