OT: Baltimore Area Stop Over

MJGMJG Posts: 274
I am driving from Boston to the Outer Banks the first week in August with my family. SWMBO does not want to roll straight down so I figured Baltimore would be a good stop for an overnight. Any suggestions on where to stay? Thanks.

    Recently stayed at the Homewood suites by Hilton. Nice hotel. Decent hot Breakfast (included). Free food/bevvies from 5-7 m-f. Never had as we were always out at that time. Stayed for a week.

    Admiral fell inn. Then there is the usual stuff around the harbor. Hilton, Radisson, Marriott. Lots to do and see. Hit up the aquarium with the kids or check out the USS Constellation. You can walk to Camden Yards from there too.

    What is your timeframe?  Boston to Baltimore should take around 6-6.5 hours (also, how are you going?).  If you're leaving early in the morning, so you'd have an afternoon in Baltimore, I'd echo other suggestions and go for one of the national chains around the Inner Harbor, and enjoy the aquarium and check on whether or not the Orioles are in town - Camden Yards is definitely worth a visit.  Port Discovery is also fun with kids.

    If you're plan is to leave later in the day and you'd only be looking for a spot to crash for the night and have a meal; I'd probably suggest something in Columbia, MD; a bit south of Baltimore, but you'll be able to stay close to 95 and it'll likely be cheaper than something in the Inner Harbor.

    We go there occaisonally - downtown ( harbor area specifically) has transformed in the last 10 years.   Right around the harbor basin - outstanding resturants, ESPN Zone, all kinds of fun stuff.  Highly recommend the area ( harbor basin) for the evening.

    There is another area, I think its called Fells Point ( something like that) - lots of bars, eatery's, some jazz music there in the past. 

    If traveling between the two areas ( not far) I would cab not walk.  Locals will have better knowledge.   I love those two areas, but do not venture out beyond the areas.

    Homewood Suites by Hilton in Columbia, MD is nice enough. 300 more miles to the beach!
