Named after Lord Baltimore, the city was founded in 1729. It is the largest US seaport in the mid-Atlantic. Baltimore was the site of the Battle of Baltimore on September 13, 1814. Francis Scott Key witnessed the bombardment and wrote a poem titled “The Star Spangled Banner” which was later put to music and in 1931 it became the official National Anthem.
Beginning in the 1980’s the Inner Harbor was redeveloped making the area Maryland’s largest tourist attraction. This area features many points of interest and restaurants that are shown on your Sites & Bites guide.
