Baltimore is home to a huge variety of attractions. It’s a haven for travelers and tourists. It’s where we’ve constructed the New Psalmist Retreat & Meeting Center, Baltimore’s premier event hall. We consider Baltimore home. We value its rich culture, and we celebrate its history. That’s why we’ve, as of late, been dedicating our blogs to attractions and entertainment that you can enjoy throughout Baltimore. We’ve discussed the George Peabody Library, the Maryland Zoo, Federal Hill Park, Fort McHenry, and the historical boats in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor (among several other attractions). Today, let’s take a look at Babe Ruth’s birthplace, Little Italy, and Fell’s Point, three great attractions in the heart of Baltimore.
