Quite honestly, the "Things to do in Baltimore" suggestion from Google was really all that helpful considering most things to do involved museums as we had such little time. So, we were on our own. When that happens, the stomach usually speaks for the mind and when in Baltimore, you can't leave without trying their famous crab on your first visit! I have had many in my life, but I can say without a shadow of a doubt that the best crab cakes I've ever had were from Baltimore. That actually may be the only best thing I had in Baltimore, because the rest was nothing outstanding. With merely a few hours left after our lunch, we decided to head into downtown.and see the inner harbor which was ranked as the #1 thing to do, according to Google. Sure, the view of the inner harbor is quite impressive, but the real attraction of the inner harbor is none other than Mr. Trash Wheel. Yes, that's right, a trash interceptor that removes trash from the Jones Falls river and empties it into the Inner Harbor.
After taking in the genius that is the creation of Mr. Trash Wheel, we decided to continue our exploration of the inner harbor. Again, with little time on our hand and wanting to see as much as possible, the best way to do that is to get higher. The World Trade Center in Baltimore opens it's 27th floor to visitors for an attraction known as, "Top of the World." Despite barely tickling the troposphere, the "Top of the World" does provide a great 360° view of downtown Baltimore, much better than what you'd see at the ground. The comparison between the two views can be seen in pictures 3 and 4.
And yeah, that's pretty much it. I think we spent about 5 hours exploring Baltimore before heading off to the airport. I'm not sure about the others on the trip, but in that short amount of time I feel pretty content and don't really need to plan another trip soon to visit the city. Do I recommend visiting Baltimore? I'd say don't prioritize it, but don't avoid it.
