7 Great Fall Getaways
Although sometimes overshadowed by its omnipotent neighbor, Washington DC, Baltimore does have its own special mojo. It is the home town of quirky queer filmmaker John Waters, after all. Baltimore’s growing gay and lesbian community offers gay bars, nightlife and shopping.
But it is also so much more. Steeped in history, Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland and has several sightseeing options of interest. Mount Vernon is considered the gay district with bars, restaurants, inns and museums. The gay community is very active in Baltimore with an all-male performance group, a gay bookstore and many cultural and political events. There are also several romantic waterfront locations, including the Harbor (pictured), which is filled with great restaurants and a wonderful museaum. All of this proving that Baltimore ain’t called Charm City for nothing.
