About the area:

Baltimore is just off the Chesapeake Bay, located about an hour s drive north of Washington, D.C., and two hours south of Philadelphia. Award-winning dining is not hard to find, and cultural offerings include an internationally recognized symphony orchestra and art museums with works ranging from ancient to current-day artists. Baltimore also has a variety of performance venues, including the historic Hippodrome Theatre, a former vaudeville palace. The local arts scene reaches a mass audience during Artscape, an annual outdoor event that bills itself as the area's largest free arts festival. Support for Baltimore's professional sports teams bring residents together. Even on chilly winter afternoons or humid summer evenings, locals fill M&T Bank Stadium to cheer on the NFL's Ravens and flock to Camden Yards to root for the MLB's Orioles.
