Harbour Place on the northwest is crammed with shops and restaurants and a lively sense of animation that is bound to infuse you. The USS Constellation, the National Aquarium and the thrilling annual festivals draw visitors around the year.

The city seethes with the vitality of sports adrenalin, the Baltimore Orioles Basketball Club, the Baltimore Ravens Football Club amongst others. Baltimore is home to a host of talent - Edgar Allan Poe the writer, Babe Ruth the baseball star, and Elizabeth Seton, the first American woman saint. Baltimore is Maryland's largest city, remembered for being the place where Mary Pickers gill sewed the first American flag in 1813.
