Beer takes us on adventures by letting us discover exotic and unique flavors. And one standout brewery in the Charm City is Heavy Seas Brewing, producing fun, nautical-themed brews such as Loose Cannon, Peg Leg, and Cross Bones.
Founded in 1782, the Lexington Market has all of the tastes and smells that make it a delicious Baltimore experience. The historic landmark has more than 100 vendors, offering everything from fresh seafood to fried chicken, authentic Indian delicacies to the famous “Berger Cookie”—a shortbread cookie with a glob of chocolate on top. And while you’re at the market, a quintessential go-to spot is Faidley Seafood for their award-winning jumbo lump crab cakes.
One of Baltimore’s oldest nicknames is the “Monumental City” and that’s for good reason. From the Washington Monument—the first major architectural memorial to George Washington—to a bronze bust of Baltimore native and avant-garde rock musician Frank Zappa, there are plenty of sites (and sights) to see.
