Baltimore is the fifth most friendly city in the United States for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. If that doesn’t spell magic, then we don’t know what does.

“Baltimore has garnered acclaim as a friendly city for LGBT visitors and a popular destination for LGBT families in recent years, but these accolades are not news. After all, this is the hometown of filmmaker John Waters and the city where “hon” is a well-known term of endearment for locals and visitors alike. The historically vibrant Mount Vernon neighborhood may be the crossroads for many gay bars and businesses, but the local LGBT community is well represented throughout the region and savvy visitors know that Baltimore’s quirky and dynamic personality extends well beyond the famous Inner harbor.

Charm City is ready to play host to your next getaway – be it a romantic weekend for two, a guys or girls escape, or a family excursion of fun and discovery. You will find an itinerary for every interest, and LGBT-friendly hotels and B&Bs to make your stay comfortable and memorable. You don’t need a special reason to plan your Baltimore visit, but check out our calendar of events to make sure you don’t miss out on any local flavor.” –
