Baltimore — 2 nights

City of Firsts

A major center for tourism and travel, Baltimore is famous as the city where amateur poet Francis Scott Key wrote the lyrics for the United States' national anthem.
Explore Baltimore's surroundings by going to Annapolis (U.S. Naval Academy & Maryland State House). There's still lots to do: try to win big at Horseshoe Casino, take in the waterfront activity at Inner Harbor, observe the fascinating underwater world at National Aquarium, and wander the streets of Fell's Point.

To see maps, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Baltimore day trip planning tool.

Washington to Baltimore is an approximately 2-hour car ride. In December, daily temperatures in Baltimore can reach 50°F, while at night they dip to 37°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Mon) so you can go by car back home.

The Old Line State
Perhaps best known as the birthplace of religious and political freedom in the United States, Maryland retains the spirit of colonial America, with stately 18th-century villages and historical landmarks. Although it's one of the nation's smallest states, there is no shortage of things to do here and you may find your itinerary fills up quickly. Make time in your vacation to tour Maryland's diverse landscape, which includes mountain peaks, picturesque Atlantic coastline, and the bustling city of Baltimore. Military buffs will enjoy touring the state's four Civil War Trails, where you can follow the footsteps of U.S. soldiers, or visiting the port city of Annapolis, home to the United States Naval Academy.
