Things to do in BALTIMORE with kids

Good morning Baltimore!  Baltimore is an incredibly family friendly city - and especially great for kids!   The city is great to get around on foot, and the water-views of Inner Harbor are perfect to start your exploration of all the places to go with kids.

If you love transportation, Baltimore could be your new best friend! The city is teeming with experiences and museums like the B&O Railroad Museum, where you can ride the first mile of rail ever laid in the country! The Baltimore Maritime Museum has a REAL submarine and cutter to explore, and you can even ride miniature steam trains at the CALS Steam Preservation Society.

You can’t go past the incredible connection to history the city holds. Attractions like Fort McHenry, which inspired Francis Scott Key to write, of course, the Star-Spangled Banner.

And of course, what city would be one of our favorites if it didn’t have just plain FUN! The Big House of Bounce, Shake and Bake skating and Ultrazone Laser Tag are great for kids who want to just let loose!

Create your own piece of family history in Baltimore. Maybe it will inspire you to write something magical too!
