If you've never lived or spent a significant amount of time in Baltimore, then I know what you're thinking. Why in the world would I want a to visit this city? Yes, we definitely get a bad rap, but there is way more to Charm City than crime statistics and The Wire (granted, it is a superb show!). Baltimore is a diverse city with a rich history — and while we might be known for the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards — this guide will take you out of the tourist traps and give you a small taste of what Baltimore has to offer. Excellent restaurants, strollable neighborhoods, and a thriving arts scene, to name a few. But above all, get out and meet some of the people that live here, they are the true heart of this authentic city.
