There are many interesting takes on the normal tourist attractions including where you can find places that have appeared in John Waters films, and others such as Diner and the location of Ace of Cakes. Festivals and events are included. The beloved local dialect known as Bawlmerese and Hon is explained. All is written so that anyone could appreciate the information.
Considering that this book is 249 pages, it contains an astounding amount of facts including bits of history and explanations. Excursions out of the city to such places as St. Michaels, Frederick, Annapolis are included, giving information on sights, shops and restaurants. Phone numbers and internet sites are included- always valuable data.
Very adequate maps that are concise but easy to use and understand are included with sights on them. The book contains an index of shops, restaurants, nightlife, as well as a `normal` index. Anyone, including locals should appreciate safety in neighborhoods info - always a concern when visiting an urban area
Since the author resides in the Baltimore area, it is fairly clear that he has an insider's knowledge and enthusiasm for his home turf and it shows. This guide goes way beyond the Inner Harbor/Camden Yards environs and showcases interesting neighborhoods, shopping areas, historical sites, architecture, great restaurants (in all price ranges), and interesting and varied museums. I also provides sound advice as to when and when not to visit certain attractions and additional practical advice. With so many new things to see and do, this guide offers infinite possibilities to not only new visitors but to return visitors as well. It also contains easy to follow maps and great pictures that only add to one already attractive package.
The best feature of this book is somewhat intangible; it makes you really want to visit because it sounds pretty cool.
The things that are described are helpful. For example there are several special highlight sections providing the "best of ..." which I found helpful. The description of some of the major places to visit was helpful. But I felt the hotel section was a little sparse. The book only provides information on eleven hotels in Downtown and Inner Harbor area.
The information provided was excellent for all areas of Baltimore's Inner Harbor - we found Duda's Pub, and were treated to their most delicious crab cakes - rated the best and they were. Beautiful walks - lots of history - Maps - this guide was all we hoped it would be.
