went to baltimore for first time. absolutely loved it will return next spring. we stayed at admiral fell inn and were very pleased.turned out we arrived on privateer day that we did not know. It was an absolute hoot.It was sooooo much fun.It really added something special to trip. we did aqurium, duck tour,
ball game at camdem yards which is spectular in every way, visual art museum, midevil times and electric paddle boats at night.It was great! As far as the reports about homeless beggers, we must have been asked atleast 12 times for money, but they were polite wether or not you gave them money. we never felt threatened. Coming from new york city where the beggers can be abusive that was quite a change.
