Baltimore, and Why You Should Definitely Come Over

When it comes to historical cities, you will have places like Boston where the Boston Tea Party happened, or Philadelphia where the declaration of independence was signed. But you can never leave out Baltimore City among the most historical cities in America. The city is the actual birthplace where the National Anthem was made, yes, “The Star Spangled Banner” was made in Fort McHenry, and sits at the mouth of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. And there is more to this city than that!

But speaking of harbors, Baltimore is actually a major city in Maryland, due to its important role as a seaport. Throughout years, millions of supplies have been received in these ports and are still actively receiving them as well.

But of course, you’re not here for a history lesson, so here are the main reasons as to why you should definitely come over to Baltimore City. 

The Atmosphere is Friendly and Accepting. 

What I mean by accepting, is that for example, when you visit a city and are  trying to make some new friends, the first thing they would ask you is “What do you do?” As if that is an important thing to know when you first meet someone. But in Baltimore, the first thing they will ask you is “What do you like to do?” And that already speaks volumes as to how accepting the community is in the city. 

It is an overall friendly atmosphere where you feel like you can really just be yourself without anyone judging you by your career choices and whatnot. Here, you’ll feel a lot more accepted and that is an amazing experience in itself already! 

Architecture. 

Baltimore city is actually also known as Charm City. And one of the reasons why it is that way, is because of the various and colorful architecture that is present in the city! This brings the city to life in various ways and can really show just how beautiful it is. Which is why it’s called Charm City.

And though modern architecture is one that is sure to capture your hearts, the past buildings as well are seen as a staple as to how Baltimore was way ahead of other cities when it came to architecture. So when you’re in town, don’t forget to appreciate your surroundings as well!

The Active Art Scene. 

Thanks to institutions like Maryland Institute College of Art and the Baltimore School of Arts, the art scene in the city has been kept alive and well running! They have been a staple reason as to why people who have a passion for art flock over to the city and are actually staying! So public murals, art, live and local bands, and other types of art are pretty much everywhere!

And that’s not all! When it comes to free art, Baltimore is the capital city! Yes, in Charm City you will have unlimited access to free art all around the city. With festivals like Artscape, you’ll find art that you might have never even heard of! It is an artists wonderland to be in Baltimore City, whether it be painting, drawing, song, or whatever, Charm City is the City for all artists.

Conclusion.

History is not the only thing that Baltimore is well known for. It is a beautiful city with some of the best and most hospitable people you will ever meet! And more than the people, the city itself is quite beautiful to behold. So when you’re looking to skyrocket your art career, or want to admire beautiful architecture, or even learn more about history, then Charm City is the place just for you!
