Although sometimes overshadowed by its neighbor, Washington DC, Baltimore does have its own special something. It is the home town of quirky queer filmmaker John Waters, after all. Baltimore's growing gay and lesbian community offers gay bars, nightlife and shopping.

Steeped in history, Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland and has several sightseeing options of interest. Mount Vernon is considered the gay district with bars, restaurants, inns and museums. The gay community is very active in Baltimore with an all-male performance group, a gay bookstore and many cultural and political events. There are also several romantic waterfront locations. All of this proving that Baltimore ain't called Charm City for nothing.
