Fancations and Baseball Vacations: Baltimore for VIPs

All the talk today about baseball trades is making me yearn for Spring Training. Camden Yards is the magnet for me when it comes to Baltimore, but there’s so much to do when it’s not baseball season. (Watch for my upcoming "Fancations" series). Harbor Magic Hotels has teamed up with The National Aquarium to provide an experience that's both fun and for a great cause. This package combines a stay at one of Harbor Magic Hotel’s three hotels with VIP entry into one of the best aquariums in the world—all while supporting the aquarium’s conservation initiatives. See the amazing jellies exhibit, or just sit back and take in the new 4-D Immersion Theater or dolphin show.

A couple of other suggestions: if you have time, take a quick walk from the Aquarium to two of Baltimore’s distinctive museums, The American Visionary Art Museum (for something new and completely different) and Geppi’s Entertainment Museum, just across from Camden Yards and filled with the curator's personal collection of "culture." To stoke the hunger from your Baltimore blast, ask for the crabs at two of the city's best seafood restaurants: Obrycki's near Fells Point and Phillips Seafood around the bend from the Aquarium.

The "Harbor Magic" package includes overnight accommodations and breakfast at Pier 5 Hotel, Admiral Fell Inn (my personal favorite) or Brookshire Suites plus VIP immediate entry and all-inclusive access for 2 to the Aquarium. For more information or to book, visit


  1. I'm all about Baltimore's crabs, too, and I love the two restaurants you mention. Thanks for the tips on the museums, too.

  2. You're very welcome. Watch for more Baltimore news to coincide with baseball season -- Camden Yards is Fenway South!
