Where should you stay in Baltimore?

The best places to stay in Baltimore for bus travelers are most likely going to be in the Fells Point, Federal Hill, Little Italy or Inner Harbor neighborhoods. All of these are accessible by CityLink buses that you can catch near the Baltimore Downtown Bus Station, the busiest bus station in Baltimore, although you unfortunately won’t find direct bus routes between the station and your destination.

Inner Harbor is a great spot because of its easy access to the National Aquarium, museums, and Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Additionally, there are some great budget options in downtown Baltimore, which is also easily accessible from the Baltimore Downtown Bus Station.

For tourists, the Charm City Circulator is a great option. It’s a free bus service between Baltimore’s most popular sites, including Fort McHenry and the Baltimore Museum of Art. A bus arrives every 10 minutes at each stop along the 4 Charm City Circulator routes.

Or to make your transportation really fun, check out the Baltimore Water Taxi. An unlimited one-day adult ticket is $10.

What are some places to visit in Baltimore?

Fort McHenry, the spot that inspired “The Star Spangled Banner” during the 1814 Battle of Baltimore, is definitely a top tourist attraction. Charm City also has a selection of great museums, including the Walters Art Museum, the American Visionary Art Museum and the Baltimore Museum of Art.

Make sure to visit Inner Harbor and its collection of historic ships (the oldest is the USS Constellation, which saw action in the Civil War). The National Aquarium is also in the Inner Harbor area, and Oriole Park at Camden Yards is in walking distance.

Finally, stop by the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum before heading over to Poe’s gravesite and imitating the infamous “Poe Toaster.”

What are some good restaurants in Baltimore?

Baltimore is known for crab cakes, pit beef and Berger cookies. The cookies you can purchase at markets and bakeries all over the city and get pretty much the same thing, but there’s a bit more variation when it comes to crab cakes and pit beef. The classic Baltimore crab cake can be found at Faidley Seafood, but you can find great crab cakes all across town.

Chaps Pit Beef is a popular spot for this Baltimore delicacy, made of thin-sliced top round that’s been grilled over charcoal and then served on a Kaiser roll. Pioneer also has great pit beef, but be prepared: they only accept cash, and the seating is limited to picnic tables, so you may want to skip it on a rainy day.

Other popular Baltimore restaurants include Woodberry Kitchen, Charleston, Ida B’s Table and The Food Market.

What is the best time to visit Baltimore by bus?

Maryland crabs are in-season from April through the end of November, so if you’re looking forward to eating some crab, make sure to factor that into your travel plans.

The weather is especially comfortable in April through June, and Baltimore’s summer festival season starts picking up at the end of May. May or June are the best months to visit, depending on whether or not you’re interested in attending some festivals.
