Baltimore was showcased in Southwest Airlines Spirit Magazine in July 2013.

Baltimore has so much to do, and it was great to see some of them showcased in Spirit Magazine!

What did they showcase?

WELL, our SPORTS teams. The Birds! Which ones? The Baltimore Orioles AND the Superbowl Champion Baltimore Ravens! Also, check out the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum attached to Oriole Park.

Baltimore Museums!

The National Aquarium in Baltimore is amazing. Looking for unique and beautiful art? Try the American Visionary Arts Museum (AVAM), The Walters Art Miseum, and the Baltimore Museum of Art, just to name a few.

Also, check out FORT MCHENRY, where The Star-Spangled Banner was written. Yes, our National Anthem was written right here in Baltimore!


The writer for Southwest showcased the B&O American Brassiere, Pazo, and steamed crabs at L.P. Steamers in Locust Point.

She even discussed going crabbing! Steamed crabs are a big thing in Baltimore. Add some Old Bay, and YUM!


There are plenty of unique shops in Downtown Baltimore and even northern Baltimore, and Amanda Gleason, the writer, luckily named a few in different locations. Ma Petite Shoe in Hampden, The Sound Garden in Fell’s Point, as well as Klein’s Antiques in Federal Hill made her list.


This article was focused on visiting Baltimore, but these hotels have great restaurants and views for the Baltimore resident, too. The Hilton overlooks Camden Yards, while The Four Seasons in Harbor East showcases the rave-reviewed Wit & Wisdom restaurant. The Admiral Fell Inn has an historic ghost tour that could be fun!


The article even talks about the Charm City Circulator, our free bus service throughout Downtown Baltimore, as well as the Water Taxi, which takes you from one side of the Harbor to the other.

BWI, Baltimore-Washington International Airport, is just south of the city, and is a major hub for Southwest Airlines. I enjoyed seeing their feature on Baltimore!
