Even with the many sights and sounds of the bustling seaport, visitors to Baltimore should find it fairly easy to get around. Many of the attractions and historic neighborhoods are within walking distance, so a good map will help you navigate the city streets to ensure you can make the most of your visit.
Baltimore City Maps can be found at the visitor’s center (401 Light Street, Baltimore), almost any store, the local tourism offices, or on the Internet. Downloadable maps of the downtown area, hotels (downtown and outlying), and parking are available on www.baltimore.org.
Public transportation maps are also easy to find. Most public transportation vehicles have maps at every stop and on the vehicle. In addition, bus routes, METRO subway, MARC train, and Lightrail maps are available at www.mtamaryland.com along with rates, hours of service, and announcements.
BWI Airport offers a Parking Map on its website (www.bwiairport.com) and the signs at the terminal and in the parking lots are easy to follow, so you shouldn’t have a difficult time finding your way around. If you do get turned around, there are plenty of airport workers to point you in the right direction.
If you choose to venture out of the city to see the surrounding areas, you can find Maps of Maryland’s counties at local gas stations or stores or you can order free Maryland maps from the Maryland’s State Highway Administration (www.sha.state.md.us). The maps offered include the Official Highway Map, the Maryland Scenic Byways Map, and the Maryland Bicycle Map. The Maryland State website (www.portaltomaryland.com) offers a link to the State Highway Administration and lots of tips and information on the many activities to do in the regional area.
