Baltimore: Birthplace of the Star Spangled Banner
Why Choose Baltimore?
Baltimore is the city with something for everyone. From a diverse selection of neighborhoods to being home of some of the country’s top schools and hospitals, residents are proud to call Baltimore home. There is no shortage of things to do either. We are home to the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, Lyric Theatre, The Hippodrome, and many small neighborhood theaters, concert venues and movie theaters. Other great attractions include The National Aquarium, Baltimore Museum of Art, The Walters Art Museum, The B&O Railroad Museum and Edgar Allen Poe’s Gravesite, just to name a few. Baltimore is very proud of its national sports teams including the Baltimore Ravens and the Baltimore Orioles. Food lovers rejoice with hundreds of eclectic dining choices from world famous crab cakes and seafood to nationally known restaurants that have been featured on shows such as Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. For those who like to spend time outdoors, Baltimore City is home to many parks, municipal golf courses and biking trails.
This city is more than just things to see and do. There are a multitude of affordable housing options for renters and homeowners alike. Baltimore County is also home to 3 of the top high schools in the state and 19 high schools in Maryland have made it to Newsweek’s top 500 high schools in the country.
We invite you to become a part of Baltimore and a part of Baltimore City Community College.
