7 Things To Do in Baltimore Before Summer Ends

Guest Author - Donna Ledbetter


While the days of summerís perpetual late-summer heat wave comes to a close, some travelers may be tempted to believe that all their days of summertime adventure have already been spent. Yet thereís still plenty to do all over the MidAtlantic as summer winds down. Here are just 7 things you can do in Baltimore.

1. Visit Druid Hill Park. The area comprising Druid Hill Park is one of Baltimoreís celebrated treasures. It is home to both the Baltimore Zoo and the Conservatory and Botanic Gardens of Baltimore. One other notable feature of the park is its winding paved roadways. You can ride a bike or drive through this quiet oasis tucked away in an urban setting.

2. Take a Stroll Down 36th. Thirty-Sixth Street and its surrounding neighborhood is widely known to Baltimore locals as Hampden. It is the site of the annual Hon-Fest, a street festival celebrating the over-the-top fashion and culture of a Baltimore era widely popularized in Hairspray, a John Waters film now turned into a Broadway sensation. Visit the local, independently owned shops along 36th and snag a piece of Baltimore history at its antique and souvenir shops.

3. Revel in Artís Beauty at the BMA and Walterís Art Museums. The Baltimore Museum of Art shares a beautiful expanse of land alongside Marylandís famous Johns Hopkins University. The BMA regularly offers an interesting array of exhibits and events for patrons of many tastes. The Walterís Art Museum is paces away from the Maryland Historical Society, its museum, and its library. Both the Walterís and MHS Museum specialize in historical art and artifacts.

4. Put $20 on a Horse at Pimlico. The Preakness isnít the only time to visit Baltimore and Pimlico Race Track. Pimlico is open all summer long, and you can go to soak up a bit of Maryland history and pride long after the crowds are gone.

5. Cheer on the Oís! They need it. Orioles baseball fans will cheer for their home team no matter what the score, and itís always welcome when kindly out-of-towners send a bit of support their way. While youíre at the Yard (Camden Yards), take a tour of the stadium and explore nearby Federal Hill.

6. Walk Around the Inner Harbor. This spot is a central tourist location and where everyone takes those guests who come visiting for the weekend. Herein lies the Maryland Science Center, the Baltimore Aquarium, quick dining, and a plethora of clothing and souvenir shops. Take a boat ride around the Harbor to Fells Point.

7. Enjoy the Sounds of the BSO. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has received international praise for their delivery of classical music programs. Though the orchestra has toured as far as parts of Asia, you can enjoy this renowned group of talents right in the heart of Baltimore.
