Play Tourist Around Baltimore - BHHS Homesale Realty

Planning to stay closer to home this summer rather than travel out of state? Consider discovering Baltimore attractions like a tourist would. The city is home to many outstanding destinations that you may have never visited or perhaps haven't seen in years. Visiting one or several of them will create a fun, interesting staycation and let you learn more about what Baltimore has to offer.
Our real estate agents recommend visiting the following sites to see Baltimore through a tourist's eyes:  

  • Oriole Park at Camden Yards – 333 W. Camden St., Baltimore, Md 21201  
    Oriole Park at Camden Yards – which is usually referred to as Oriole Park or Camden Yards – has been the home of the Baltimore Orioles since 1992. Located in downtown Baltimore, it combines a state-of-the-art design with special touches that evoke famous ballparks of the past. You'll find touches like natural grass turf, steel rather than concrete trusses, and an arched brick façade that give the park a timeless feel. Catch an Orioles game, and before or after the game, visit Eutaw Street, a festive area beside the ballpark that has restaurants, carnival-type entertainment, and the Orioles Hall of Fame Wall.

Babe Ruth Museum-BHHS Homesale Realty

Yes, Babe Ruth once ate somewhere between 12 and 18 hot dogs, but his more typical fare appeals to our real estate agents and anyone else who enjoys a good meal: two Porterhouse steaks, double order of salad, double order of cottage-fries, and a double order of apple pie (a la mode, natch). Visit The Bambino's birthplace and museum to learn much more about Babe Ruth. 

Camden Yards

Just outside the beautiful, brick-built Camden Yards, home to the beloved Baltimore Orioles, is a statue of a young Babe Ruth, sculpted by Susan Luery. The gifted player and gourmand is in the future; this is an older boy, not yet a man, eyeing his dreams. This is George Herman Ruth fresh out of the Baltimore orphanage (St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys), setting his sights on a Major League career.

National Watch & Clock Museum-BHHS Homesale Realty

For some 42 years (more than 367,920 hours), the National Watch & Clock Museum has been helping visitors to Lancaster County have a good time. From a humble origin of only about 1,000 timepieces, the museum now features 12,000 clocks, watches, timekeepers, and novelty items related to time-telling. As you peruse Columbia homes for sale, be sure to stop by this "largest and most comprehensive horological collection in North America."

The Exhibits

The museum is laid out chronologically (did you expect it any other way?) with pieces dating back to Stonehenge, itself thought to be a timekeeping device. The exhibits take you through the entire history of timekeeping technology from early non-mechanical devices like sundials and henges to today's atomic and radio-controlled clocks.

Plenty of displays capture children's imaginations; many more intrigue and educate older audiences. From divining seasons from the motion of stars and planets to setting our watches to seconds-per-century accuracy, the exhibits explain both the concept of time and our technology to measure it.
