The Baltimore Harbour

Baltimore airport car hire

The Inner Harbour is your one-stop touristy thing to do in Baltimore, but don't let that deter you, the attractions here are part of what puts Baltimore on the map.  Families will enjoy the many museums here like the Maryland Science Centre and the American Visionary Arts Museum, as well as the National Aquarium.  Other Baltimore Harbour attractions include live music and plenty of eating and shopping. 

Fells Point Beer

Head over to the Fells Point neighbourhood in your Baltimore car hire for the widest selection of great restaurants as well as bars and breweries in the city.  In particular, Fells Point is home to the DuClaw Brewing Company - a great place to sample a wide selection of locally made craft and seasonal beers.  Also worth checking out is Max's on Broadway, where you can choose from a long list of rare beers from around the world.

The Maryland Zoo

Visit one of the most impressive zoos in the United States during your stay with your Baltimore car rental.  The Maryland Zoo is located in Druid Hill Park, and is not too far from another popular attraction, Edgar Allen Poe's House.  It's easy enough to make a tour of both all in one afternoon.

Day Trips

Washington, D.C.

Since you're so close you might as well add a visit to the nation's capital by car hire to your stay in Baltimore.  In fact, many travellers are just passing through Baltimore on their way there but, for everyone else, it can make for a novel day trip just to tour the monuments in the National Mall.

Ellicott City

Like the Baltimore area enough to move there?  Nearby Ellicot City is ranked as one of the top towns to live in in the country.  Aside from its proximity to such a wonderful metropolis, Ellicot offers tourists a lovely historic Main Street, complete with old-timey charm.  Have lunch there at one of its upscale cafes.


After the country's capital city you can visit the lovely little state capital of Maryland, as well as the sailing capital of the United States.  Annapolis is historic, charming, and really into boats.  A fun afternoon in Annapolis can be spent walking around the town's historic downtown harbour, shopping and eating seafood in the local establishments.
