The Blog

The Baltimore Experience is all about giving you good advice on what to see and what to do in the great City of Baltimore and the DMV as a whole based on people’s actual experiences. This isn’t just a review and rate it site, this is a blog which offers unique advice from our eight contributors’ personal experiences at each location. We give you the information, photographs of the experience and our opinion, but it is up to you to decide whether each place is a must see or a no go.

Commenting is encouraged as it often takes more than one experience to really understand each location and determine whether it is worthy of fame, an overrated destination, or a hidden gem.
