Hey duders, so I just moved to Baltimore from Miami for work and don't really know anybody. What are some places I should check out?

From my experience (watching the Wire) you should get a gun and watch out for a singing guy in a trench coat.

They have a pretty decent concert scene. I've driven up there for a myriad of concerts back in my highschool / early college days. You should check it out, but be careful. Baltimore is awesome and incredibly scary.

Baltimore is the only real city I have ever known with a floof.

I don't know man, you could check out the Hardware Barn. Go buy yourself a DX460, fully automatic with a .27 caliber charge. It uses gunpowder so when you've left it in the truck for a while and need to step up and use the bitch, there is no battery problem.

Also, the wire references

Hey man, I've lived in and around Baltimore my whole life. If you're looking for the Bar scene check out Fed Hill or Fell's Point. Both are fairly historical areas so there's a lot to see and do. There's always the Inner Harbor if you're looking for touristy things to do, and there's also the bar scene around the Power Plant as well. Patapsco State Park is the place to go if you want to get outdoors and do some hiking, kayaking, or mountain biking. Strip clubs are located on "The Block" and if you'd like to see our ghetto version of the beach you're going to have to travel over the Bay Bridge to Ocean City. If you're into Baseball check out Oriole Park at Camden Yards, it's a beautiful park and the O's have been doing well the past 2 years. The Babe Ruth Museum is only a block away from the park too. Stay away from the far West Side and far East Side of Baltimore, that's where most of the murders happen. There's a lot to see and do with Washington D.C. and Annapolis so close by as well. Let me know if you have any other questions or would like me to go into better detail.

Yah, and summer clothes, Also In Rockville Fitzgerald is burred, if you are into that stuff. I drive by it every day, never visited it.

This. Naw, just hit up some local bars or something. That's what I usually do when I move to/visit a new area just to get a feel for the people and see what are the topics du jour in the area.

I lived there for a couple years as a kid and I always loved their aquarium. Dunno how it is these days, but 20 years ago it was awesome. I've lived in various coastal cities on both the Pacific and Atlantic and I've never seen an aquarium as awesome as that one. Again, haven't been in decades and I was like 5 or 6 when I lived there so I'm not going to say my memory is super accurate, but I really remember loving it, and my parents still speak fondly of it to this day and they've lived not only all over the country but in other parts of the world as well.

Go see the stevedores stained glass donation to the Catholic Church at the docks, plus check out the rectory to see the police department's contribution. (Not enough season 2 references in this thread.)

  • Get Cap'n Crunch French Toast from Blue Moon Cafe, ideally at an obscenely late hour of the night.
  • Get a cannoli from Vaccarro's in Little Italy. In general, go to Little Italy and eat a good hearty Italian meal.
  • If you like art or archaeology, visit the Walters Museum, it's worth checking out
  • Visit DC - you're only 40 minutes away and it's got way more worth seeing than Baltimore
  • Visit Annapolis - It's a decent day trip, not a ton there besides the Naval Academy but quaint and worth a visit

If you see a couch in the middle of the projects and someone is sitting there you can get heroin there.

Some of the best answers to a question ever. Ive never been to Baltimore, but its seems to be a lot like Detroit, a good place to start above ground nuclear testing.

Find some people who seem cool and hang out with them. If they're drunk, all the better. Best way to make friends around here (assuming you're in the city; if not then I dunno, go to Chipotle probably?). Baltimore's got a vibe.

@kratosx: Where in Baltimore are you living? City or County?

If you want to connect to other gamers, Baltimore is central to a large Midatlantic network of gaming events, such as MAGfest, which is in the DC area every January. The BitGen game music festival, in the city, is coming up August 10th, and a lot of my friends will be there, most of whom were fellow gamers I met at my college's (UMBC) game room.

There's much more to the city than violent, drug-related crime (which you will completely avoid if you stay away from certain areas). I spent the first 25 years of my life in the western/southwestern part of the county and can vouch that Baltimoreans, while often crass, have a lot of heart. Engage with the locals, even gamers if you want, and you should have a ball, hon.
