Job detail to Baltimore

by ERZrodriguez

Hi, I will be going to Baltimore on a job detail from January through April. I live in California and have visited Baltimore only a once on a very short visit. I know the weather must be cold. What is there to do in Baltimore around this time of year? I need some advise on what clothes to take, etc. All advise is welcome

I will leave what to do to a native Baltimore VT-er...but having hung out in Baltimore many a winter weekend..and living in NY, here is my advice: bring warm clothes! Spring can be great, but most winters on the East Coast can/will be cold! We just got hit by a good amount of snow the last few days. It's winter! Don't be one of those people trying to make it work with a hooded sweatshirt or windbreaker. Buy a coat/gloves/scarf. You wont regret it!

You don't give us much to go on as to your likes or dislikes or even if you are male or female.

What kind of clothing depends on what kind of job. If you will be working outdoors, thermal underwear, sweater, thermal vest, wool cap, gloves, waterproof boots of some kind, warm socks, and of course a coat - I prefer a down coat which you can sometimes get from Lands End on sale. You will also need some kind of lined raincoat. A good place to get outdoor working gear is WearGuard, and it is fairly cheap. If you are working indoors, you will still need the boots, coat, hat, sweater, raincoat etc.

We have sports - College basketball is big in the area and in January they celebrate Babe Ruth's Birthday at the Babe Ruth Birthplace. The Inner Harbor has a good Aquarium, the U.S.S. Constellation, US Coast Guard Cutter Taney, US Submarine Torsk, Lightship Chesapeake, and the Seven-Foot Knoll Lighthouse. There's a boat show in January and the auto show in February and March has Maryland Home & Garden Show, the St. Patrick Parade and Lunch With The Elephants (Ringling Bros. Circus). Fort McHenry National Monument & Historic Shrine is a must see, and there's also Flag House & Star-Spangled Banner Museum was the home of Mary Young Pickersgill who sewed the 30 x 42-foot Star-Spangled Banner that flew over Fort McHenry during the War of 1812, and the Shot Tower. Baltimore is also a city of neighborhoods like Camden, Little Italy. They have their own Washington Monument, and Edgar Allen Poe's Grave. There is B&O Railroad Museum, the Maryland Science Center, and various art museums. Lexington Market is an old time farmer's market - you can get to most of the downtown on the light rail or subway.

Plus you can jog down I-95 about 40 miles to Washington DC (or go on the train if you don't have wheels). Or go over to Annapolis (the State Capitol and site of the US Naval Academy). You should try to visit a crab house and learn how to eat hard crabs, and that is the height of the oyster season.

Gloves are my one essential when it gets cold, and I'm from a cold climate. For some reason, often as long as I'm completely covered, I'll be okay for running in and out of places. But for someone not used to cold, definitely bring a coat. You're lucky in that you can hit the after Christmas sales - you should be able to find some good ones on the cheap!

Baltimore is a great place. Enjoy your off-hours!

Travel Tips for Baltimore

Cannons at the USS Constellation

by chewy3326

There are two large cannons in front of the USS Constellation in the Inner Harbor. They're quite interesting, though there's not too much else to do around the area. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the two cannons here were originally used on the warship Constellation.

Take me to the ballpark

by KaiM

My most favorite thing about Baltimore was a visit of a Baltimore Orioles Major League baseball game at Camden Yards. Great atmosphere. From the outside the stadium with its red bricks looks more like an old warehouse than a baseball stadium.

People of Baltimore: Boaters

by Fun4you

Since moving to Baltimore I have learned just how much the people of this city love the water! I have made many friends who live and die by boating, weather it be power or sail boating. Most beautiful summer weekend days you can go past any of the marinas around the harbor and find them packed with people drinking, hanging out and having a great time. They love to travel around the inner harbor and sail to restaurant along the bay for great crabs. Baltimoreans are very welcoming and love meeting new people to take out for the day sailing. During the summer there is even a game of poker dingy where people boat place to place picking up cards and drinks and see who winds up with the best poker hand at the end!

Packing List

by cultrlenigma

one word, BACKPACKS. A must and a godsend when hiking around downtown. If you have a baby, don;t use a baby bag - BACKPACK. If you ahve a purse and want to shop, BACKPACK. Get my point? Tennis Shoes in any weather, maybe some good boots in the winter, we do get snow, and we use salt. UGH. Sandals cool too in the summer. It get's muggy downtown. Allergy medicine if you have allergy to ragweed pollen. Definitely. AND any asthma stuff in the summer. Not many places downtown to just stop in and get batteries. Most stores are aimed at shopping tourists, not really at supplying tourists, if you get my drift. There are three photo shops that I know of - one in the Gallery, and two on Baltimore St. Dunno, I always go home...lol. Sunscreen

Small Conservatory

by JonBru

If you are in the area of the zoo/Druid Hill Park be sure to stop in and see the Rawlings Conservatory. Built in the 1800's, this conservatory is bigger than it appears from the outside and houses plants and trees from Mediterranean, desert, and other climates. There is also a nice outside garden, with picnic tables and an amazing sundial that shows the time for cities from across the globe. We enjoyed it much much better than our visit to the Cylburn Arboretum.

Hours: Tuesdays through Sundays
10am - 4pm

Address: 3100 Swann Drive
Baltimore, MD 21217

Directions to the Conservatory
From the Jones Falls Expressway/I-83 North and South--Take Exit 7/West to Druid Park Lake Drive. At the fifth traffic light (Gwynns Falls Parkway) turn into Druid Hill Park. Make an immediate right after entering the park and the Conservatory will be on your left.
