Have you made it past Camden Yards yet?
Camden (and M&T Bank Stadium) are essentially on the southern outskirts of the city, near Federal Hill. I went past them on my cab ride from the airport, but I haven't genuinely explored the area across the harbor yet. I was going to take a water taxi over there today and see more of the neighborhood, but I didn't sleep well last night and I decided to lay low, chill on the couch and watch football.
Hear ya on all counts here, except I'm watching NASCAR (football was yesterday for me)

FWIW, the water cabs are nice. The last time we had a Board Meetup in Baltimore, we took one from the inner harbor to Fells Point. Now I wouldn't recommend them for regular use, but they're good for exploring.

Re: Baltimore! ... oh, shit. Now what?

So ... my time in Baltimore is coming to an end. All indications were that my company was going to allow me to move back to the Midwest and work remotely (due to me already being remote from the rest of the marketing team, which is based in Atlanta), but they did an about-face and refused, asking me to stay here for another six months at least ... and I declined and tendered my resignation on Friday. I'll be here through the end of October, and then I'm leaving the east coast. So long, y'all!

No, but seriously. What do I need to do before I leave? I've caught several games at Camden Yards (such a magnificent stadium), eaten at some of the great restaurants around here, spent time in Washington, D.C., broken bread with Shatna, and generally had a decent time. But what am I missing? Help me, TrekBBS -- you're my only hope!

That and Fort McHenry are definitely on the bucket list.

Let me know if you ever want to grab a bite to eat in the next 30 days or so. Lots of folks here have met me ... I'm harmless.

Want to kill two birds with one stone and meet at AVAM? New annual show opens on October 5th, so I was planning to go soon anyway. And I'm a member, so we'd get a discount at the restaurant.

I'm tied up in Canton on the evening of October 5, and with not having a vehicle (I walk / water taxi everywhere) it could be really tight getting from Federal Hill back to Canton in time, but I'd be free any of the following weekends.

C'mon, folks! What else do I need to do? I keep thinking of going to the National Aquarium, but ... $35 admission, oof.

Re: Baltimore! ... oh, shit. Now what?

I was born there and visit from time to time. Great conventions, the museum's not bad (and free), the harbor is good (but expensive), join a 'bar crawl' for a wild night now and then (I joined one where everyone had to dress as zombies), see a football game, and if you want a good movie experience, check out the Senator Theatre. The bus system is alright, get a monthly pass though (cheapest in the long run). Baltimore is safer than what people are lead to believe (now a days) but try not to act like a tourist.

Any of those weekends would work. Send me a private message with suggested date/time. Museum's open 10-6, restaurant 11-4.

I live in Dundalk, MD (and frequently visit Annapolis, staying with family), and always a skip away from Baltimore.

Hey there, bbjeg. Almost neighbors. I live close enough to Dundalk that I go to the Planet Fitness on Merritt Blvd.

^That's walking distance from me.

There are a bunch of nature walks too for another free activity (though people tend to not think of forests when they think of Baltimore), they are worth checking out.
