The holiday season in Baltimore is nothing short of magical.

From Candy Lane in the heart of Downtown, to the ice rink, Christmas Carousel and German Christmas Village in the Inner Harbor, to the Monument Lighting in Mt. Vernon. By exploring all the city has to offer, we’re connecting with our neighbors and supporting local businesses. We can’t wait to see everyone out and about all December long!”
