How to Spend 3 Days in Baltimore

How to Spend 3 Days in Baltimore

As the largest city in Maryland, Baltimore is full of fun and interesting things to do. Three days give you ample time to go sightseeing, enjoy the city’s waterfront location, and delve into Baltimore’s art, culture, and food. Here’s how to maximize three days in Charm City.

Day 1: Explore the Neighborhoods

Each of Baltimore’s neighborhoods has its own unique vibe, so kickstart your time on a neighborhood tour that gives a sense of the area’s history and culture. Tours of the Mount Vernon area typically cover the country’s first monument to George Washington, the Baltimore Basilica, and America’s first Catholic church, and tend to include a snack and drink at Mount Vernon Marketplace, a former warehouse that’s now one of the city’s most popular culinary hubs.

Afterward, embark on a food-focused tour of a different neighborhood. Tours of Fell’s Point or Little Italy typically take you to family-run restaurants to sample dishes such Baltimore-style pit beef, homemade meatballs, and Polish dumplings. Then, devote your evening to Sagamore Spirit Distillery, where you can learn more about the whiskey-making process and taste American Straight Rye Whiskey.

Day 2: Spend time Around the Inner Harbor

Baltimore’s busiest area is the Inner Harbor neighborhood, and for good reason; it’s home to some of the city’s best museums and attractions, as well as an abundance of restaurants. Walking tours offer a more intimate glimpse into the area while revealing historical and cultural details that you may otherwise miss. After you’ve explored on foot, spend an hour at one of Baltimore’s museums; choose between Baltimore Maritime Museum, Maryland Science Center, Port Discovery Children’s Museum, and the National Aquarium. 

The Inner Harbor is also where you’ll find the World Trade Center, which rises 405 feet (123 meters) above the harbor; head up to the 27th-floor observation deck for panoramic views of Baltimore. Afterward, get out on the water on a dinner cruise of the illuminated harbor.

Day 3: Nature or Vineyards

Even in urban Baltimore, there are many ways to experience nature. Explore 207 acres (84 hectares) of trees, flowers, and vegetable gardens—plus a greenhouse and historic mansion—at Cylburn Arboretum, or go strolling around Federal Hill Park, Patterson Park, and Druid Hill Park.

If wine is more your thing, spend the day in the Maryland countryside on a tour of the Heritage wine region. Tours typically visit vineyards such as Great Frogs, Thanksgiving Farms, and Friday’s Creek, and include tastings of white wines such as viognier and sauvignon blanc, as well as snacks. Back in the city, head to one last neighborhood—perhaps quirky Hampden or colorful Charles Town—to enjoy a last taste of the city’s dining scene.
