Baltimore - a Port City in Maryland

Baltimore sits on the edge of Chesapeake Bay and is world famous for its seafood. Likewise it is hard to think of Baltimore, without thinking of the Baltimore Orioles who play from their field at Camden Yards. To those who are not familiar with the city, you will find that a visit to the Inner Harbor is a treasure trove of restaurants, shops, museums, hotels and live entertainment.

Traveling by Rental Car

One good way to visit Baltimore is to take a trip in your Baltimore rental car from CRX along the I-95 Hwy. or JFK Memorial Highway. That thoroughfare travels all the way from New York through Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and Baltimore, on to Richmond, Virginia. These New England cities are rich in history and are filled with examples of historic architecture and
events.

Museums

The city is replete with an entire group of well-known museums, including the Walter's Art Museum, The Contemporary Museum, the Baltimore Museum of Art, and the American Visionary Art Museum. The latter is unique, in that it features many self-taught artists and unusual styles. If you go there, you will find convenient parking for your Baltimore rental car from CRX.

Little Italy

Not too far from the Inner Harbor, is Little Italy, an area of the city which features several
outstanding, small, family-run restaurants. You will find this near the corner of Pratt and
Albermarle streets. Popular fare includes pasta, veal chops, and eggplant parmesan.

Places of Interest

Another place that draws visitors to Baltimore is the National Aquarium. The city is also renowned for John Hopkins University and John Hopkins Hospital.
