Edgewater Real Esate: With a population of over 640,000, Baltimore is Maryland's largest city, but it bears far more distinction than just its size. A unique culture derived from generations of Baltimoreans and the area's rich history gives the city a strong sense of character, resulting in its use as a popular setting in books, television shows and movies.
Identifying features of Baltimore include the characteristic rowhouses, marble steps, locally brewed beer like National Bohemian, baseball and specifically their major league baseball team, the Orioles and Blue Crabs, which are served at nearly every eatery in the city and eaten using mallets and ones hands on a table usually covered in newspaper. A working class port town, Baltimore is the industrial as well as cultural center of Maryland. Baltimore boasts over 100 annual community festivals and events and has proudly hosted the Miss USA Pageant. The historic Hippodrome Theatre in downtown Baltimore houses hundreds of musical and theatrical performances each year. Other attractions include the Baltimore Museum of Art, the National Aquarium in Baltimore, the Babe Ruth Museum and countless others. Baltimore is a place to experience true American culture.
