Oriole Park at Camden Yards#3 in Best Things To Do in Baltimore
If you're downtown during a game day, you're bound to see droves of fans flashing orange as they head to Camden Yards. Located just a few blocks from the Inner Harbor, the stadium is one of the most famous in the league. Built in a retro style in the early 1990s, Oriole Park offers an authentic baseball game experience. The park features a well-kept field, abundant restaurants, beer, pretzel and hot dog stands, and beautiful views overlooking the city from the stands.
Recent visitors highlight the park as comfortable and festive. They enjoyed the food vendors and the prices inside the stadium, and they recommended seeing a game even if you are just a casual fan. The park also boasts an Orioles Hall of Fame and museum located outside stadium's front entrance.
The stadium offers 90-minute stadium tours where aficionados can learn plenty of interesting tidbits of Baltimore's baseball legacy and historical figures like Babe Ruth (whose statue greets visitors at the front of the stadium). During the regular season (April through September), tours are available from Monday through Saturday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and Sundays between noon and 3 p.m. During the offseason, tours are available Monday through Saturday between 10 a.m. and noon, and Sundays between noon and 2 p.m. While tours are available year-round, keep in mind 2 p.m. tours do not stop at the dugout on game days. Tours cost $9 for adults, $6 for seniors and admission is free for children 3 and younger.
Game ticket prices start at $9 and continue to rise, depending on your seat level and the opposing team. For more information, visit the Orioles' official website. If you're relying on public transportation, the Light Rail and local buses provide frequent service to the ballpark.

#1 Baltimore Museum of Art
Situated in Charles Village, just north of the downtown area, the Baltimore Museum of Art claims the title of largest art museum in Maryland. Filled with more 95,000 art pieces, including an impressive Matisse collection, donated by Baltimore natives Claribel and Etta Cone, the museum draws art enthusiasts from across the globe. An entire Cone Wing of the museum is devoted to the sisters' spectacular repertoire of paintings from distinguished artists like Matisse, Picasso and Cézanne. Recent visitors praised the extensive collection, citing free admission to the world-class museum as a major perk.
The museum is also home to one of the largest Andy Warhol collections in the world and features European sculptures, African and Asian arts, and decorative arts. The Contemporary Wing, which showcases works by women and artists of color, among others, and the sculpture garden, which hosts jazz sessions during the summer, are two main museum highlights.
