blog-headline4Welcome back! In our last blog, we’d began our ‘virtual tour’ of attractions for folks visiting the Baltimore area. Today, we’re continuing that theme. We find that those who are visiting New Psalmist Retreat & Meeting Center – Baltimore’s premier convention center – are often new to the area. If you have a few extra days to spend in Baltimore surrounding an event at our convention center, you can take some time to check out any or all of the following:

water-taxiTour the Harbor in a Water Taxi

You can tour the Patapsco with a water taxi! Take a look at downtown Baltimore from a different angle as you glide along the Patapsco. View the piers and the skyline, visit Fell’s Point or ogle at the sight of the World Trade Center Institute. With a water taxi, you can tour the best sites that Baltimore has to offer, and you can navigate to your favorite locations in a quick minute.

baseballCatch an Orioles Game

If you’re a baseball fan, you’ve got to seize the opportunity to see Oriole Park at Camden Yards: The home, of course, of the Baltimore Orioles. The kickoff team for Babe Ruth, the Orioles are a longstanding staple of Major League Baseball. Their current stadium, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, featured its opening game on April 6th of 1992. The stadium houses over 40,000 seats, and it offers picturesque views of downtown Baltimore. Regardless of the team that you support, you’ve got to visit Camden Yards and watch an Orioles game while you’re here in Baltimore.

railroadExperience the B&O Railroad Museum

If you’re a history buff, or if you just have a tyke who’s infatuated with choo-choo trains, you’ll love the B&O Railroad Museum. Take a look at some of the best preserved trains, including steam locomotives, passenger cars, and of course, cabooses. Travel back in time to an era when the railroad connected the East and West. You can even take a ride on B&O’s mile long railroad track. Visit between April and December to take a train ride. Learn more about the B&O Railroad Museum here on their website.
