Baltimore for a Bit More: Things to Do

Activities ranging from roughly $20-50/person

Watch the Orioles play a game (Downtown/Pigstown)
Head to Orioles Park at Camden Yards and watch the home team play in a stadium whose design had profound influence on late-20th- and early-21st-century stadium design in the country. While you’re there, grab a Maryland staple—a pit beef sandwich from Boog’s, a hotdog or a soft pretzel in the shape of an O!

Bowling at Patterson Bowling Center or Mustang Alleys (Fells Point and Little Italy)
Head to either of these two bowling alleys to dabble in a Baltimore-born tradition: duckpin bowling. This fun twist on the classic game features smaller balls and pins that traditional bowling, and is commonly believed was invented in Baltimore in the spring of 1900.

Book a ride on the Urban Pirates trip around the harbor or a Chessie Dragon Boat (Inner Harbor)
