Baltimore Helps Balance the Lives of Students at Bloomberg School
Baltimore, Maryland, is a vibrant, waterfront city whose world-renowned Inner Harbor is surrounded by historical neighborhoods with unique shops, restaurants, art venues, and culture. The city supports a forward-looking arts scene and simultaneously embraces its history and lasting influence on American culture.
Baltimore's waterfront, with its bustling indoor and outdoor life, is a must on any to-do list. From art galleries to museums, it includes a wide variety of things to see and do, including such pieces of its maritime history as the "U.S.S. Constellation," the last surviving ship of the Civil War. The National Aquarium and Maryland Science Center are popular stops for many people. The city's location affords easy weekend trips to the mountains or the beach. Washington, D.C., is just a short drive or train ride away, too.
Deeply rooted in Maryland's rich history, Baltimore is full of promise and celebrates its diverse roots and influences in many ways. Little Italy's people, events, and good food make it a favorite spot. Mount Vernon, the center of Baltimore's Art District, is full of historical buildings, savvy galleries, and famous museums. Maryland's festivals, fishing expeditions, and recreational activities offer many interesting diversions. Sailing, hiking, and other summer activities eventually give way to such winter favorites as skating and skiing. From the NFL Ravens to MLB's Orioles, the city is home to world-class, world champion teams as well. Baltimore is a city that provides Johns Hopkins students with everything needed for a full, balanced, rich, and productive life.
