A major center for tourism and travel, Baltimore is famous as the city where amateur poet Francis Scott Key wrote the lyrics for the United States' national anthem.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Antietam National Battlefield and Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary. Step out of Baltimore to go to Annapolis and see U.S. Naval Academy, which is approximately 40 minutes away. There's still lots to do: try your luck at Horseshoe Casino, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at National Aquarium, take in the history at Fort McHenry National Monument, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sagamore Spirit Distillery.
