Visit Baltimore

Things to Do


The Baltimore Trolley Tour offers a spectacular route through Charm City that takes guests to see the city’s sites with commentary by knowledgeable guides. The tour showcases the city’s role in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 (“The Star-Spangled Banner” story), the Industrial Revolution and the preservation of historic architecture, monuments and waterfront neighborhoods.

Sit back and journey along with us in a climate-controlled trolley to uncover three centuries of history, charming neighborhoods, an array of public art and monuments and you’ll discover why Baltimore is still making history, and so much more.
