Cruise Ship Back In Baltimore After Fire, Repairs Continue

Cruise Ship Back In Baltimore After Fire, Repairs Continue Jul 12th, 2013 at 2:15PM: Chris Owen When cruise ships come to town, civic leaders rejoice. The floating resorts bring with them jobs and tourism dollars that might be otherwise elusive. In May, Baltimore, Maryland, welcomed Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the Seas to town with gusto, as the state's governor named May 13 Royal Caribbean Cruise Day. But the hoopla of that new cruise ship in town was short lived when just days...

New Cruise Line Sets Sail In 2014 With Small, Luxury Ships

New Cruise Line Sets Sail In 2014 With Small, Luxury Ships May 13th, 2013 at 1:00PM: New cruise lines are about as rare as new hotel chains; there is just not a lot of action on that topic. Like hotel chains, airlines and other travel-related companies, most cruise lines have been around for a long time too. Still, there are those who see a need in the marketplace that existing companies just can't fill. Such is the feel of new Pearl Sea Cruises, which will set sail in 2014...

For Your Health, End The Layover Laziness

For Your Health, End The Layover Laziness May 3rd, 2013 at 10:00AM: What do you do on layovers? Nap? Catch up on email? Mindlessly watch some sports without any rooting interest? Christopher Berger, a physiologist, has a better idea. It's simple. Stand up. Walk away from the gate. Heck, leave the premises if you have at least three or four hours. There's no rule that says you have to spend the layover inside the airport. Baltimore has a fitness trail...

The new show brings an inside look at what it takes to move an NFL football team from city to city.

Carnival Sells Hurricane Cruises To Nowhere Nov 1st, 2012 at 2:00PM: Lots of people pine after cruises to Mexico, the Bahamas and around the Mediterranean. But have you ever wanted to go on a cruise to nowhere? Hurricane Sandy has disrupted normal cruise routes, and Carnival has one creative solution.

The World's Best Gyros?

The World's Best Gyros? Aug 13th, 2012 at 12:00PM: The Italians have their pizza, Mexicans have tacos, America is the home of the cheeseburger, the Germans dig their sausages and the French eat crepes. In almost any country there is one ubiquitous food staple budget travelers can count on for inexpensive sustenance. I recently spent six weeks in the Greek Isles, where the Gyro is king. By my own informal calculation, I think I ate about 30...

Museum Month: American Visionary Art Museum In Baltimore, Maryland

May 8th, 2012 at 1:00PM: An enormous ball made out of more than 18,000 bras, a replica of the ill-fated Lusitania constructed of nearly 200,000 toothpicks, and a floor mat created out of hundreds of toothbrushes are just a few of the quirky treasures to be found inside Baltimore's imaginative American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM). While it's a lesser-known spot on the city's tourist circuit, once anyone catches...

Summer Hotspot: Baltimore, Maryland

Summer Hotspot: Baltimore, Maryland Apr 13th, 2012 at 2:00PM: If scenes from "The Wire" are the only images that come to mind when you think of Baltimore, it's time to reevaluate. The city is a hodgepodge of distinct neighborhoods, including historic Fells Point, where you can take your pick from more than 120 pubs, and quirky Hampden, where you still might be able to spot a beehive hairdo straight out of a John Waters film. Although Baltimore is only a...

American city might sell its historic landmarks Mar 28th, 2012 at 11:00AM: According to a recent release from CBS Baltimore, Maryland's largest city may soon be looking to offload some of its historic landmarks to private owners or foundations.

Destination information tool promises increased travel safety, eventually Feb 1st, 2012 at 2:00PM: Destination information from a trusted source can make for a rich travel experience and help keep us safe. Knowing where to go (and not go) in a city we have not traveled to before can be valuable information to have on hand. Trip Sentry, a new search engine for travelers, hopes to become the authority site for connecting people on the move with travel safety advice. "Trip Sentry solves the...

Baltimore photos in black and white by Patrick Joust

Baltimore photos in black and white by Patrick Joust Nov 27th, 2011 at 10:00AM: Patrick Joust, a distinguished photographer from Baltimore, has recently released one of his latest sets of Baltimore photos. Black and white, these photos, titled 'Street', capture people and places around town. And I am especially fond of this photo set. I was born in Baltimore and I have spent time regularly throughout my life going back to the city to visit my extended family. It's been...

Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore opens

Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore opens Nov 19th, 2011 at 3:00PM: "Charm City" gets its first real branded luxury property with the opening of Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore in the Inner Harbor's chic Harbor East neighborhood. One of America's oldest cities, Baltimore has gotten more media attention for its portrayal in shows like "The Wire" than it has for its luxe offerings, but, in recent years, has seen the growth of a number of high-end offerings,...

Edgar Allan Poe Museum may close next year

Edgar Allan Poe Museum may close next year Sep 13th, 2011 at 11:00AM: Baltimore's most famous literary landmark may close next year due to budget cuts. The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum hasn't received money from the city for two years. Since that time it's managed to limp along on private contributions, but they aren't enough to keep it afloat. Now the curator says if something isn't done, the museum will probably close in June 2012. Although the museum...

The Obama Administration has already removed all restrictions...

Exploring the Baltimore Beyond the Inner Harbor

Exploring the Baltimore Beyond the Inner Harbor Jul 7th, 2011 at 5:30PM: To me, a huge fan of Baltimore but still a tourist, it seemed like a random Saturday in the early summer. But in Charles Village, a neighborhood between Johns Hopkins and the harbor, it was the weekend of the "Pile of Craft" fair at St. John's church. I found out about it by chance, leafing through a copy of City Paper while doing laundry. (One accumulates lots of laundry on long road...

The Triple Crown races to Baltimore: Preakness 101

The Triple Crown races to Baltimore: Preakness 101 May 17th, 2011 at 4:30PM: Saturday, the second "jewel" of the Triple Crown races in to Baltimore with the Preakness Stakes at the historic Pimlico race track. Decidedly more casual than the Kentucky Derby, Preakness is best known for its raucous infield revelers and fun-laid back atmosphere. Planning a trip to see Animal Kingdom compete for his next win, or simply looking for a reason to spend the weekend in...

Traveling with Edgar Allan Poe

Traveling with Edgar Allan Poe Oct 29th, 2010 at 9:03AM: -- "Quoth the Raven, 'Nevermore.'" Now those are words to conjure with! They are, of course, from Edgar Allan Poe's most famous poem, "The Raven." Poe casts a uniquely powerful spell among American writers. Even people who have never read him have probably heard bits of his poetry or know the titles of some stories, such as "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Fall of the House of Usher." Although...

Getting drunk: Twenty cities that don't know how to handle their liquor

Getting drunk: Twenty cities that don't know how to handle their liquor Oct 8th, 2010 at 9:00AM: California loves to get wasted! San Diego and San Jose are the top two cities that drink stupidly, according to a survey by Insurance.com. They lead the country in alcohol-related driving violations, a dubious distinction to say the least. So, if you step into the crosswalk in these two spots, take an extra second to look both ways. The reasons for hitting this list vary and include proximity...
