You may find driving around Baltimore to be a bit of a challenge since most of its main streets are one way. If you'd rather explore downtown using the service provided by Baltimore Trolley Tours, call 410-653-2998 for information. You can also explore Baltimore from the water by hitching a ride on the Water Taxi, summer hours 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. weekdays or 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. on weekends, 800-658-8947. They sell a reasonable all day pass and stop at 15 landings in the Inner Harbor.
Since Baltimore is a big city, you'll need to have your personal safety radar on high at all times. Before heading out, make sure you study a map and know where you are going. Always lock your car and keep your windows up when driving. You'll need to take extra precautions with your purses and wallet too. Only carry a pocket book that has a secure closure. Keep your hands on this closure and the purse close to your body at all times. Men, keep your wallets in an inside coat or trouser pocket. NEVER put it in your rear pocket. In crowds be alert for pickpockets. The Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association folks also advise you to never use a large bill for a small purchase. It is much safer to use credit cards or travelers checks for any major expenses.
Now on a lighter note--if you're one of those square-dancing couples, you'll be glad to know that the Baltimore Folk Music Society holds a square dance with live music and caller most weeks. So if you want to swing your partner round and round, give their hot line a call at 410-366-0808.
Traveling with fur babies? Well just in case they should need medical care, you'll be relived to know that you'll find help just a call away at the Emergency Falls Road Animal Hospital, 6314 Falls Rd, 410-825-9100.
