Top Things to Do in Baltimore: Outdoor Activities

Baltimore may be a city in every sense of the word, but it also offers many opportunities to get out and about. Plenty of trails, parks, gardens and even lakes entice visitors of all fitness levels and interests to join Baltimoreans seeking alfresco rejuvenation.

History buffs have options, too, from walking tours through Colonial-era enclaves to historic battle sites and even a Civil War-era tall ship. Art lover? Take a picnic and claim a spot in the Baltimore Museum of Art’s sculpture garden for an afternoon of quiet contemplation. And don’t forget the harbor, with its wide range of on-the-water activities from kid-friendly paddleboats to floating taxis.
