During the decade of the 1980s, a sweeping transformation began within the City of Baltimore with the renovation Harborplace, now the site of unique shops and restaurants. The city’s restoration continued with the rebirth of the central business district, culminating in a remarkable renaissance. Today, Baltimore’s modern office buildings and corporate plazas, refurbished hotels, and bustling entertainment district provide a dynamic and exciting place in which to live, work, and play. The Inner Harbor area, once a deteriorating waterfront, has become the very centerpiece of the city’s flourishing tourism industry. This dynamic area is home to the National Aquarium, Pier 6 Concert Pavilion, the Baltimore World Trade Center, the Baltimore Convention Center, and the Maryland Science Center with its famous Davis Planetarium.

Traditionally one of the nation’s most important port cities, Baltimore still serves as a major transportation hub along the East Coast corridor. A progressive infrastructure features a network of major highways and toll roads. Amtrak passenger rail service combines with local commuter rail service as it provides weekday train service between metropolitan Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Convenient air travel is available from the Baltimore/Washington International Airport, taking its place among the world’s busiest air traffic facilities.
