Visit Baltimore/Washington (BWI).

Named after the first African American to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, Baltimore/Washington International Airport/Thurgood Marshall can’t wait to welcome you to Charm City. Step off the plane and into your gate, grab your luggage, and get ready to see more of B’more. Hop on the bus or train if you’re a public transit fan—or rent a car through Southwest® if you’re more interested in having full control of where you go and when—and get your Charm City adventure started.

Like several other U.S. metropolises, Baltimore is considered a city of neighborhoods. Officially divided into nine geographical regions, Baltimore boasts hundreds of recognized neighborhoods, each of which brim with things to explore. Head to Southeast Baltimore to visit Patterson Park, known as the Best Backyard in Baltimore. Historic neighborhoods to visit in this region include Fells Point, Greektown, and Little Italy—all great places to check out local cuisine influenced by other cultures. West Baltimore has been popularized by TV shows set in the area, but it also includes the Old West Baltimore Historic District. Sports fans will want to head to Northeast Baltimore, which is the home to the stadium where the city’s teams play, as well as beautiful Lake Montebello. No matter which of the Baltimore regions or neighborhoods you stay in or choose to explore, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Of course, landing at Baltimore/Washington International Airport/Thurgood Marshall puts you in the perfect spot to visit more areas of the Capitol Region than Baltimore. If your final destination is Washington, D.C., itself, enjoy! If not, consider taking a short daytrip from Baltimore proper to Washington, D.C., to take in some of the endless things available to do and see. The Lincoln Memorial, museums, monuments, and cherry trees abound.

Prepare to be enchanted by Charm City—book your next flight to the D.C./Baltimore area on Southwest. Southwest Airlines flies to Baltimore/Washington International Airport/Thurgood Marshall, making it easy to plan your next Capitol Region getaway. Book with confidence, knowing that the process will be straightforward from flight selection to checkout. Of course, having a memorable trip to Baltimore/Washington (BWI) is about more than finding a great deal on a flight to the Capitol Region.
