Other than New Year’s Day, January isn’t known for being the most eventful month of the year. But in the city of Baltimore, there’s always plenty to do. Even if it is only 30 degrees outside.
So other than working on your New Year’s Resolution, here are 10 of the best things that you can do in Baltimore this month:
#1 Take a walk…
Sure you may need a big fluffy coat and some comfy boots but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the beautiful streets of Charm City. A quaint neighborhood like Fells Point is just begging for visitors in January. There’s plenty of one-of-a-kind shops you can dip in and out of and a wide variety of restaurant choices for when you’re ready to grab a bite.
#2 Visit a museum…
There is nothing better than exploring a museum on a cold winter’s day. Places like the Baltimore Museum of Art are the perfect place to open your eyes and your mind. Now through January 29, 2017, you can explore over 90 paintings and drawings by the famous Henri Matisse and Richard Diebenkorn.
#3 How about an aquarium?
Art not your scene? Try visiting the National Aquarium and “see the world from below the surface.” Save some money by visiting on a Friday when you can gain access to the award-winning exhibits for half the price of general admission.
#4 Grab coffee with an old friend…
Sure the holidays are a great time to spend time with family, but don’t forget to make some time for friends. Baltimore is home to several top-notch coffee houses. Find a comfy trendy spot like Zeke’s Coffee and call up an old friend to meet you for some java.
#5 See a show…
You don’t have to go to New York City to catch a good play. The Baltimore Theater Project is running Jack London’s The Call of the Wild from January 12, 2017- January 29, 2017.
#6 Go sledding…
Facing a snowy day with no where to go? Make the most of it at once of the best places to sled in Baltimore County like Perry Hall, High School, Kenwood High, or Hannah Moore hill.
#7 Get creative…
Wine and Canvas of Baltimore offers a place to brush your day away as you create your own masterpiece while sipping a good glass of wine. Grab a friend or go it alone. If you’re lucky you can even find a great deal like this one on Groupon.
#8 Put on your skates…
Feeling adventurous? Take a spin around the rink at PANDORA Ice Rink at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. On January 4, 2017 you can even warm up with some cookies at Late Night Skate with Insomnia Cookies from 8-10pm.
#9 Stay festive…
Not ready to give up your holiday cheer? Visit the Holiday Festival of Trains at Ellicott City Station which runs all the way through January 29, 2017. Operating model trains include the children’s push button Thomas the Tank Engine and the O-scale Crazy train layout.
#10 Reconnect with history …
If you’re in the mood to brush up on history or just want a cool place to walk around and visit, look no further than the Fort McHenry National Monument. The star-shaped Fort McHenry was the scene of the Battle of Baltimore, September 13-14, 1814 where the valiant defense of the fort inspired Francis Scott Key to write “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
