Baltimore is a multi-layered city of old and modern charms. Most visits start with the promenade of Inner Harbor attractions and restaurants sporting sumptuous Maryland Crabs. A tapestry of inviting communities extend in all directions from there. Most visitors are familiar with Fort McHenry where the Star Spangled Banner national anthem was written. Others who’ve seen Baltimore on TV shows will recognize the 18th century port district of Fells Point. Some also make their way to Mount Vernon District, the home of most art venues in Baltimore, large and small.
We like those attractions too. But we believe that every visit should also deep-dive into the city’s two black colleges, black churches, restaurants, nightclubs, shops, cultural institutions, historic sites and events. In fact, the city has 5 major black museums to visit if time permits.
