There are few things more quintessentially Baltimore than Maryland blue crabs. (The name comes from the color of their claws, but once cooked they turn a red-orange.) Some longtime local favorites include Captain James Landing, Phillips Seafood, L.P. Steamers and Bo Brooks. If crabs aren’t your thing, we won’t kick you out of Baltimore, but we will direct you to some amazing seafood restaurants that offer other Chesapeake Bay specialties like rockfish, oysters, and mussels.
Enjoy handcrafted and innovative drinks at several craft cocktail bars around the city. Participate in Baltimore’s rye whiskey revival and tour a local distillery, or cheers to your new favorite beer at a local craft brewery. Take a food tour and sample some of the city’s top restaurants.
