Charm City lives up to its name with historic locales and a quirky art scene.

Baltimore, Maryland, is a bit of an underdog, often playing second fiddle to nearby Washington, D.C. But Charm City has got plenty to recommend it, from historic cred to a quirky art scene, which you can discover neighborhoods like Hampden and institutions like the American Visionary Art Museum. Today, Baltimore is a dynamic destination full of kitsch and creativity, not to mention stellar food — most notably Maryland’s famous crabs.
