You Can’t be Bored in Baltimore

Summers in Baltimore are full of opportunities for indoor and outdoor fun. The season’s warming up, and this holiday weekend finds the city in full swing.

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is the place to be for the next few days. Of course there are fantastic fireworks on Independence Day, but that’s just the culmination of a day-long celebration. Come enjoy the street performers and bands at the Harbor Place amphitheater, stroll around for tempting food choices, and find a great spot to watch the fireworks - orchestrated to music!

The Museum of Industry is well worth a stop, and another good vantage point for viewing the fireworks. They’ll have kids’ activities and you’ll learn about some of the fascinating firsts that Baltimore claims. And for something a bit different, head to Middle Branch Park for their Waterfront Jazz and Arts Festival.

Suppose you’d rather see fireworks out in the country? Then head to Oregon Ridge in Baltimore County for the annual Baltimore Symphony Orchestra concerts. Bring your picnic baskets and folding chairs to enjoy your favorite patriotic music and, of course, the 1812 Overture for the rocket’s red glare fireworks finale.

Get out and celebrate – it’s our country’s birthday!
