    Best Things To Do Before and After an O’s Game

    The O’s are back in town! That means that fans near and far will be flocking to Camden Yards to take part in one of America’s favorite pastimes. While the games themselves can be enough to fill your afternoon or evening with lots of fun, for those of us who want a little something more, there is a TON to do around the ballpark before and after the games. baltimore orioles stadium

    Of course, there are dozens of great places to eat or grab a drink around Oriole Park, but there are also a lot of fun places to go and sights to see. So if you see a weekend forecast that looks perfect for a day out downtown, here is your ultimate guide to a fun-filled time.

    Inner Harbor

    401 Light St, Baltimore, MD 21202
    0.4 miles from Oriole Park at Camden Yards

    As close as it is to Camden Yards, it’s hard NOT to walk around Inner Harbor before or after an O’s game. Locals will tell you, however, that if you’re looking for somewhere to eat, you’re better off heading to Federal Hill just south of the harbor for some good food and local flavor. Minnow is a great spot to stop and grab a bite or one of their delicious cocktails! If you’re looking to walk around and enjoy the area, Baltimore’s Inner Harbor hosts the Maryland Science Center, Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture, Geppi’s Entertainment Museum, and exotic sea life at the National Aquarium. If it happens to be a rather warm and sunny day, a break inside for some AC might be the perfect plan.

    Another great option for a baseball kind of day is the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum. While the Sports Legends Museum has sadly moved out of the building, the museum still looks to perpetuate the historic legacy of Babe Ruth.

    Harbor Cruises

    Inner Harbor, Baltimore, MD
    0.4 miles from Oriole Park at Camden Yards

    If you can time it right with game time, a cruise around the harbor can make for the perfect day! Cruises go from 45-90 minutes and tae you all the way around to the Key Bridge and Fort McHenry. Don’t worry about spending too much time in the sun because they offer plenty of room inside or outside.

    Pickles Pub

    A longtime Baltimore tradition, if you want to be in the hot spot before and after the game, Pickles is the place to be. You can follow the sign for “Cheap Ass Beer” and soon you’ll be immersed in a crowd of O’s fans with cans of $2 Natty Bohs in their hands. Finding a seat at the bar might be a daunting task, but it is worth it. Head there before or after the game and you won’t be disappointed.

    Horseshoe Casino

    1525 Russell St, Baltimore, MD 21230
