Baltimore County

With so much to see and do, Baltimore County is truly a special place. A day can begin with shopping in one of our neighborhood downtowns and end with a beautiful dinner overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. Only a short drive from Baltimore City’s Inner Harbor, BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, and just an hour’s drive from Washington, D.C., Baltimore County offers accommodations, activities, shopping, and dining to fit every taste and budget.
