We Took a Tour Of Baltimore...

By: Downtown Diane

Do you realize how many fantastic attractions there are in our fine city? Well,we took a tour this past weekend to discover and rediscover a few of Baltimore's finest family attractions.

The Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Center and The Baltimore Office of Promotion and The Arts put together a schedule of events that began with fun at ESPN Zone. The kids had a ball playing the hundreds of games and the new virtual reality two seater ride was a sure hit! Players choose a scene they want to travel through, such as a roller coaster, and the ride make you feel as if you are actually on the coaster! It shakes you, it moves back and forth , it's cool! On to the basketball court and a one on one session or to hockey with one child being the goalie while the other attempts to make the goals. I enjoyed the mountain biking game where I really had a workout! ESPN Zone features lunch and dinner daily and a terrific sports viewing experience on any one the many televisions throughout this entertainment arena. Call 410- 685-ESPN for more info.  

We moved on to the new Passport: Voyages of Discovery Ride, this is a few doors down from ESPN Zone and Baltimore's newest attraction. It is a multi-media, multi-sensory attraction. Participants see, hear, feel and ride one of two exciting attractions. Currently running is "Time Elevator America" and "Oceanarium." Open 7 days from 10am, call 410-468-0700 for more details or visit

We headed next to Port Discovery, by way of the very entertaining Duck Tour Ride. As we zoomed along the Baltimore streets, blowing our "duck callers," we couldn't help but stop and admire our beautiful city, Baltimore. With all the new construction taking place and new expansions at the Aquarium and Science Center, we are truly lucky to live in this expanding metropolis. Port Discovery, offers three stories of endless interactive fun. If you are ready for an adventure you will find it here. My children enjoyed solving mysteries and visiting the Egyptian Tomb. There is currently an exhibit on The Magic School Bus, which provided tons of interactive fun. Of course, you can always let off steam in the huge maze that is filled with obstacles, slides, tubes and an opportunity to lose your parents for a while!

Always fun for all ages, Port Discovery is open daily, visit for more info.
Enjoyed a delcious lunch at M & S Grill, the newest restaurant addition to Harborplace. Owned by the folks from McCormick and Schmick's, M & S Grill is pure comfort food. Don't miss ordering their homemade pot roast, it is outstanding! The restaurant is beautiful, the staff friendly and food will not disappoint.

So, the next time the kids are "bored," remember all the fabulous, interactive places we have in Baltimore and head on down to them ... you will be guaranteed an afternoon to remember.
