Arts and Culture Weekend Getaway in Baltimore
By car from Washington, DC: Baltimore is about 1 hour, 30 minutes from Washington, DC. Take I-295 to the Capital Beltway, I-495, until you reach I-95 North. Continue until you reach I-395 North, which takes you into town from the south.
By car from Philadelphia: Baltimore is about 2 hours from Philadelphia. Take 676 East to I-95 South until you reach I-895 South. Exit at Route 40 West, which cuts through the center of downtown.
By train from Washington, DC or Philadelphia: Baltimore's Penn Station, centrally located, is a stop on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor line that connects Washington, DC with Philadelphia and points north. Book your ticket in advance online, and be prepared to pay more for a short-notice purchase.
Getting around town: While our favorite areas mentioned above are great for strolling, taxis are the best way to get between most neighborhoods, especially after dark. Call ahead for Arrow Taxicab (410/358-9696).
