Tourism

Stay a While

With its convenient proximity to the Chesapeake Bay, countless historic attractions and the best in modern entertainment, Baltimore County offers a wealth of opportunities for residents and visitors alike.

Attractions

Essex, Middle River and White Marsh all owe their heritage and prosperity in part to the aviation industry, and as such, proudly honor the pioneers who put Baltimore County on the map. The Glenn L. Martin Aviation Museum pays homage to one of Maryland’s most influential businessmen and his impact on the community and world alike. The museum commemorates the entire history of aviation in Maryland, from the earliest airports to World War II innovations to the present. With numerous planes and artifacts on display, as well as regular speakers, the museum is a fun and educational experience for all. The museum puts on educational demonstrations, hosts musical events and features great hiking trails and natural scenery.

Located just north of White Marsh is an area that has managed to transcend time. Jerusalem Mill Village is a National Register-listed rural village that has preserved its way of life since the days of the Revolution. The village is a microcosmic view of a time passed, centered on a gristmill and a museum. The village features a restored water-powered mill, copper shop and the only remaining covered bridge in Baltimore and Harford counties.

Dining

In Baltimore County, one can find a myriad of restaurants to suit any taste, but as the Chesapeake Bay is the number one producer of blue crabs, seafood is the delicacy of choice. You can find traditional American favorites and all sorts of ethnic dishes (including those with a Cajun spin) in addition to delectable, fresh seafood. You can enjoy a waterfront view, an elegant dining experience or a “home-style” neighborhood establishment. It’s all available for your dining pleasure.

Baltimore County has abundant accommodations for weary travelers, all within close distance to the major sights and attractions. Ranging from economy, family hotels and motels, luxury inns and quaint bed and breakfasts, visitors can rest easy between days filled with excitement and recreation.
