What Makes Baltimore A Great Place to Live
Founded in 1729, Baltimore City is named after Cecil Calvert, second Lord Baltimore, and founding proprietor of the Province of Maryland. Baltimore once served as the second largest seaport in the Mid-Atlantic. Baltimore is the largest city in the state of Maryland and is the 26th-most-populous cities in the country. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor was once the second leading port of entry for immigrants to the United States and a major manufacturing center.
Baltimore has more public monuments than any other city in the country. Baltimore is home to 289 properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places that include areas within Fell’s Point, Federal Hill, and Mount Vernon. Baltimore City showcases rich architecturally designed buildings from famous architects designing a variety of period styles. Baltimore City neighborhood developers followed a grid pattern in the creation of brick and formstone-faced rowhouses.
Famous Baltimore residents have included the writers Edgar Allan Poe, Edith Hamilton, Frederick Douglas, James “Eubie” Blake, Billie Holiday, John Waters and Babe Ruth.
Baltimore has the distinct honor as the birthplace to famous baseball player, George Herman “Babe” Ruth. In 1992, within only 2 blocks from the legendary, “Babe” Ruth birthplace, Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened. Oriole Park at Camden Yards is known by many to be the most beautiful baseball parks in Major League Baseball. Many cities have been inspired by Camden Yards to build their own versions of this ballpark. Camden Yards has helped revive the Inner Harbor to become the most desirable areas in real estate within the Mid-Atlantic.
Today, Oriole Park at Camden Yards is a popular tourist destination. The Orioles compete in Major League Baseball as members of the American League East division. The Orioles team have the honor as World Series Champions for 1983, 1970 and 1966. Calvin Edwin “Cal” Ripken Jr. played 21 seasons for the Baltimore Orioles (1981-2001) as shortstop and third baseman. A Maryland native, Ripken is best known for holding the record for 2,632 consecutive games played, surpassing Lou Gehrig’s streak of 2,130 that was voted the all-time baseball moment of the 20th century in 1999.
Ripken was a 19-time All-Star and was named Most Valuable Player twice. In 2007, Ripken was elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Another popular tourist destination in Baltimore is the 1988 M & T Bank Stadium, home to the Baltimore Ravens National Football League. The Baltimore Ravens earned title of Super Bowl champions in 2000 and 2012 along with four AFC North Division championships (2003, 2006, 2011 and 2012) and appeared in four AFC championship games (2000, 2008, 2011 and 2012). During the 1950s and 1960s, Baltimore established a team called the Baltimore Colts, as one of the NFLs franchises led by NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback Johnny Unitas.
At the end of the 1983 season, the team left Baltimore to become the Indianapolis Colts. In 1996, the former Cleveland Browns moved to Baltimore to become the Baltimore Ravens. To honor Johnny Unitas, within Oriole Park, the plaza in front of the main entrance to the Ravens’ stadium is named “Unitas Plaza” with a bronze statue. In 2014, the Ravens unveiled a statue of long-time Raven linebacker player, Ray Lewis.
The bronze figure depicts Lewis in the final pose of his iconic “squirrel dance,” which he would perform before every Ravens home game upon coming on to the field.
During the 1970’s, former Baltimore Mayor William Donald Schaefer was instrumental in the creation of The National Aquarium as a vital component to the redevelopment of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The National Aquarium, Baltimore officially launched on August 8, 1981, and is now a highlight attraction to many tourists as one of the world’s largest aquariums.
The National Aquarium (formerly known as the National Aquarium in Baltimore), located in the Inner Harbor area of Baltimore is a nonprofit public aquarium organization whose mission is to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures. The Aquarium has an annual attendance of 1.5 million and holds more than 2,200,000 gallons of water while featuring a living collection of more than 20,000 fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles and marine mammals living in unique habitats.
During the summer of 2013, the Aquarium released Blacktip Reef that replicates an Indo-Pacific reef with more than 700 animals that include a school of blacktip reef sharks. The Aquarium houses several exhibits that include Upland Tropical Rain Forest, Atlantic Coral Reef, an open ocean shark tank, and Australia: Wild Extremes, which won “Best Exhibit” award in 2008 from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
Within the Inner Harbor, the aquarium was constructed during a period of urban renewal. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor has become a worldwide tourist destination and model of urban planning and development. The Inner Harbor is surrounded by office buildings, hotels, restaurants and leisure attractions. The Inner Harbor design has influenced more than 100 other cities and won more than 40 national and international awards for best waterfront redevelopment design.
In 1984, Baltimore Inner Harbor earned a citation award by the American Institute of Architects as “one of the supreme achievements of large-scale urban design and development in U.S. history”. The Inner Harbor is a historic seaport, tourist attraction, and landmark of the city of Baltimore. The Inner Harbor is within walking distance of Camden Yards and M & T Bank Stadium. A water taxi is even offered to connect passengers to Fells Point, Canton and Fort McHenry.
The waterfront area along to the east of the Inner Harbor has recently been developed with condominiums, retail space, restaurants, and hotels in an ongoing project called, Harbor East. Along the Inner Harbor Marina and Lighthouse, historic ships are a popular tourist attraction for exploring that include: USCGC Taney-last fighting ship that survived the attack on Pearl Harbor, USS Torsk-Tench-class submarine as the last ship to sink enemy vessel in World War II, Lightship Chesapeake, A seven-foot knoll lighthouse and USS Constellation-the only Civil War era ship left.
Owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment, Horseshoe Casino Baltimore launched in 2014 as the second largest multimillion-dollar casino facility in Maryland with 122,000 square-feet of gaming floor. Located along Russell Street, neighboring M&T Stadium and Camden Yards the Casino features video lottery terminals, table games and a World Series of Poker room. Horseshoe’s marketplace area features Charm City food outlets, three premier restaurants and several bars and lounges.
Fort McHenry National Monument in Baltimore, Maryland, is a historical American coastal star-shaped fort is designated a “National Monument and Historic Shrine”. Fort McHenry was named after the early American statesman James McHenry (1753-1816), a Scots-Irish immigrant and surgeon-soldier. McHenry was a delegate to the Continental Congress from Maryland and a signer of the United States Constitution. McHenry was also appointed United States Secretary of War serving under Presidents George Washington and John Adams.
Fort McHenry was built in 1798 for use by U.S. armed forces through World War I and by the Coast Guard in World War II. In 1925, Fort McHenry earned the distinct designation of becoming a National Park and placed on the National Register of Historic Places on 1966. As a national tradition, whenever a new flag is designed, it first flies over Fort McHenry. The first official 49-50 star American flags were flown over the fort and are still located on the premises for all to enjoy. Today, the Fort has become a popular tourist destination where visitors come to see the “Birthplace of the Star-Spangled Banner.”
Fort McHenry is best known for its role in the War of 1812, when it successfully defended Baltimore Harbor from an attack by the British navy in 1813. British warships bombarded Fort McHenry for 25 hours, depleting their ammunition and ceasing their attack.
During the War of 1812 a storm flag was flown over Fort McHenry during its bombardment. Later, the flag was replaced with a larger flag, sewn by Mary Pickersgill in anticipation of the British attack on the fort. In the dawn morning of September 13, 1814, a Washington lawyer and amateur poet Francis Scott Key was inspired to compose the poem, “Defence of Fort M’Henry” after witnessing the bombardment of the Fort by British ships of the Royal Navy in Baltimore Harbor during the Battle of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812. Key was inspired by the large American flag flying triumphantly above the fort during the American victory.
The poem was later renamed “The Star-Spangled Banner” and identified as the United States’ national anthem. The original flag that flew over Fort McHenry, the Star-Spangled Flag is kept on display at the National Museum of American History in a special exhibit. A replica of the 15star/15strip U.S. flag currently flies over Fort McHenry.
