It would come up in conversation that Carolina Husband and I were heading to Baltimore to visit my sister and one of the standard responses was "Well there is plenty to do in D.C. It's only a short drive." But as we learned on the Baltimore duck tour (quack, quack), the city has gone through quite a renaissance in the past few years. We managed to take in most of the sites on foot and water taxi.

Our highlights for the 4 days were we in Baltimore included an Orioles baseball game finished a bit early for us by a downpour of rain;

Duck tour through the city on land and through inner harbor by sea;

Dolphin show, jelly exhibit and 4-D movie all in the National Aquarium (the 4-D experience was very cool even for two adults);

Oysters for lunch, crabs for dinner;

And a water taxi trip to Fort McHenry where the star spangled banner was written.

Baltimore seemed like a great educational trip for kids with the aquarium, science center and fort and there is no shortage a restaurants, shops and watering holes for us adults. It's worth it really just to see the architecture and residence's in Federal Hill, Fells Point and the downtown/harbor area. Plus I am a sucker for any city that is on the water.
Oh yeah, we even had time to get in a fantasy football draft for the boys.
