Baltimore City Rats
Should be the name of their soccer team or something as these vermin are all over the back alley ways and streets of Baltimore. Also spotted a large number of roaches... this is pretty typical, yes, but these pests (rate and la cockaroaches) were out in droves. I was told that the rats have made a come back after the city had them under control for some time.

East, west North and south theres drugs everywhere
where there is drugs there is crime, but you have to know how to avoid it.
DONT ACT SCARED;THAT WILL TIP PEOPLE OFF
DONT BE SCARED TO ASK; IF YOUR LOOKING TO COP
JUNKIES ARE PRACTICALLY HARMLESS
AVOID NORTH AVE AND FAYETTE ST IF YOU CAN; NOTHING THERE FOR TOURISTS EXCEPT A STREET TO GET SOMEWHERE ELSE (OR DRUGS,IF THATS WHAT YOU WANT)
Craziness after dark
Walking back to are car from Little Italy to the Inner Harbor (4 blocks) we noticed LOTS of police. Not just cars patrolling, but helicopters shining a spot light down too. Apparently, the tourist areas flood with teens at dusk. We happen to be walking by police breaking up a fight where 25 or so kids were hanging out. It didn't feel dangerous since all the police are around. It just seemed like an annoyance for the city bc they don't need to be in the area bc the mall and most shops are closed.
Please be sure that if you are in Downtown Baltimore, that you are only in the inner harbor area, unless you know what you are getting into. Baltimore is a nice city, but not exactly the safest so make sure you are careful when visiting.
No matter how much fun it seems, it is not a good idea to whack your friend over the head with a crab mallet.
Red Light Cameras
They're going up everywhere. If you run a Red Light, expect to receive a notice and $ fine in the mail......
The Maibock at Baltimore...
The Maibock at Baltimore Brewing is an amazing intperlay of malt and hops, and alcohol as Phil soon found out, when trying to keep up with the well versed beer bard, RichieC.
