What must I do/see in Baltimore?
 
Gaffney SC's own mighty Limestone College Saints Men's Lacrosse team is heading to the National Championship again in Baltimore this Sunday. The program started in 1990. This will be Limestone's eighth NCAA Division II Championship Game appearance during their run of 15 straight NCAA Tournament appearances they last reached the title game in 2012, falling 11-10 to Dowling in Foxborough, Mass. The Saints have won two National Championships (2000, 2002).

But enough about my Alma Mater, my beautiful wife is the photographer for LC Athletics and we have been invited to go with the school to the National Championship game this weekend. Any of you guys or gals ever been to Baltimore? I need a few suggestions for the old must see/do list. We have Fort McHenry on the list already. Thanks in advance for your help. Go Cocks! Go Saints!

I live there...well not in the city, but 20 minutes outside the city. How long are you staying? Where are you staying? What sorts of things do you like to do?

Ft. McHenry
Inner Harbor
Fells Point (eh, trendy bars, decent restaurants in Fells or close neighborhoods (Canton, Little Italy, Fells).

Make sure you have some body armor. Just kidding... sort of.


Check out Camden Yards and the inner harbor. Definitely don't miss out on eating some Maryland blue crab. I've only been to Baltimore once on a day trip, but I enjoyed myself.

so everyone makes fun of Baltimore for its crime rate. I get it..shows like the Wire and Homicide didn't help and yes there are a lot of shootings/murders, etc, but the city of Columbia does not have its fair share of issues with gangs and such...

Make sure you go to Camden Yards and catch a game. Beautiful ballpark and cheap prices. Inner Harbor is also a must those 2 things will fill a whole day up.

We are going to be in town just Sat and Sun. Staying in a Hotel about 8 miles from the Ravens Stadium. The LAX title games (D1,2,3) are all on Sunday so that will suck up most of that day. We already decided that Ft. McHenry is a must visit. Thanks for the word about the Inner Harbor I have heard that is a great place too. Will be travelling with wife and four kids (12-3) so we are going to make this a history sightseeing run. Heading across the border Monday to Gettysburg then to Philly Tuesday. At the Inner Harbor, is there a good microbrewery there? I am gonna need a beer (or twelve).

Gordon Biersch and Pratt Street Ale House are right there.

I thought Clipper City (might be called Capitol City) was in there as well, but I could be wrong.

Why would anyone want to leave Baltimore?

Check out old episodes of The Wire. It's basically a tourists guide to Baltimore.

NO. Steamed crabs are nothing like crab legs.
