Appalachian TrailWe’ve talked more than once about our love for Baltimore. But there are times when one needs a little space from those one loves.

If one is in Baltimore and the outdoor type, one is in luck.

There are 66 state parks in Maryland offering hiking, biking, camping, paddling, tubing, swimming, birding, picnicking, climbing and everything in between.

In addition to the state park system, Maryland has 17 national parks, 1,513 listings on the National Register of Historic Places, two National Heritage Areas, Six National Natural Landmarks and 72 National Historic Landmarks. All of the above operate under the National Park Service.

And here’s the best news if you’re itching to get outside right now – it’s National Park Week!  National park entrance fees are waived through Friday!

 So get out there and enjoy some space!

Many of these students relocate to attend the Bloomberg School - some from across the country, some from across the globe. So, in addition to continued posts about our application deadlines and procedures, I’ll be sharing more about life in Baltimore, our “Charm City.”

Today, I stumbled across a recent “Best of Baltimore” slideshow on the Travel Channel  website.

Perfect! What a great introduction to our city and its sites!

Check out the other Baltimore links on the “Best of Baltimore” page, including a video showcasing Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, an article about the  Walter’s Art Museum, “How a Crab Cake Should Be,” and a slideshow of baseball’s greatest stadiums, including Baltimore’s Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
