So many celebrities and it’s so hard to meet them! And what about those historic personalities that you didn’t get a chance to meet in life? Albert Einstein, Elvis Presley or the talented Marilyn Monroe. Thankfully, Wax Museums exist so you can meet and take as many pictures as you want with the wax version of your favorite idols.
There is a small but growing group of people who travel the country with one very special thing in mind that they want to experience. No, it’s not theme parks, or National Parks, or music festivals, it’s food.
Foodies, as they have dubbed themselves, are people who have a refined and sophisticated love of food. They travel not only the country, but the world, looking for incredible dining experiences that will last with them for a lifetime.
Baltimore is one place that has been growing in esteem among foodies the last few years and with good reason. The city has a young vibrant core combined with great classic dishes that is the perfect recipe for any aspiring foodie to enjoy.
Let’s take a look.
Maryland’s Fort McHenry is rich in history, with a major claim to fame. The Star-Spangled Banner was actually inspired by the fort. During the Battle of Baltimore in 1814 (part of the War of 1812), our troops valiantly defended it, and Francis Scott Key penned the ode to this great country that we still sing so proudly today. Beyond its musical connection, there’s a lot to love — and learn about — at this prominent landmark, which was named for Secretary of War James McHenry. You certainly don’t need to be a history buff to appreciate everything that the fort has to offer.
