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.

The Lincoln Memorial, museums, monuments, and cherry trees abound.
