Baltimore is a great city for families, and many attractions are within a short walk of each other. From spring to fall there are lots of outdoor activities, but even in the chilly months there are fun ways to beat “cabin fever.” Here are a few. Of course, you might want to save a winter ride on the Harbour Connector or a visit to the USS Constitution for one of those warm, sunny breaks in the weather!
