Cheap Flights to Baltimore

Baltimore overview

Set in the border state of Maryland, Baltimore effortlessly combines the work ethic of the north with southern charm.

Maryland was founded by Lord Baltimore, a catholic, and was one of the first American colonies to embrace the freedom of religion. Baltimore the city had a major part to play in the American Revolution and briefly became the home of congress. When the Civil War broke out, Maryland stayed in the union, but the decision was far from unanimous and many civilians were arrested as sympathizers with the South.

The biggest attraction, for travellers taking cheap flights to Baltimore, is the city’s redeveloped waterfront. Among its must-see items is the USS Constellation, the US Navy’s last all-sail warship. Nearby you will find Federal Hill Park, which offers one of the best views of the city, as well as the American Visionary Art Museum which specializes in the work of self-taught artists.
