Baltimore is a major city in Maryland with a long history as an important seaport. Fort McHenry, birthplace of the U.S. national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” sits at the mouth of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Today, this harbor area offers shops, upscale crab shacks and attractions like the Civil War–era warship the USS Constellation and the National Aquarium, showcasing thousands of marine creatures.

Peanut butter and jelly, apple pie and ice cream, Baltimore and sports – some things just go together. Baltimoreans take their sports seriously. Today, sports fans flock to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the first of the new breed of retro ballparks, to cheer on the O’s or the Birds as they are known locally.

The city’s love affair certainly extends to the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens. You also can catch indoor soccer’s Baltimore Blast, wildly popular collegiate lacrosse (you’ll find the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame here); the Preakness Stakes, the middle jewel of racing’s Triple Crown; collegiate football, and international soccer “friendlies.”
