Best Times to Visit Baltimore

The best time to visit Baltimore is from June to August, but you'll have to book early. While summer brings heavy crowds, peak season hotel rates and soaring temperatures, the city overflows with unique events and festivities. Spring and fall usher in milder temperatures, but the winter months can get quite chilly, so be sure to arm yourself with plenty of layers if you plan to visit Cham City at this time of year. And don't forget your boots  precipitation is common year-round.
