Arriving at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport
Planes to Baltimore land at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. The airport provides domestic service throughout the U.S. as well as to and from international destinations like London and the Caribbean. More than 20 million people pass through the airport every year, making it one of the busiest airports in the U.S. The airport is named after the late Baltimore native and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American voted to the bench. It's located 10 miles south of Baltimore. The MTA's #17 bus runs from the airport into Baltimore, and the fare is $2, with the ride taking about 20 minutes. You can also take the MTA's Light Rail train. It's located outside the international concourse (Concourse E) and runs from the airport to Baltimore's Lexington Market and Penn Station. The fare will cost you $1.35. If the last thing you want to do is hop on a bus or a train, a taxi into downtown Baltimore will cost you approximately $25. The ride will take anywhere from 15 to 25 minutes depending on traffic.
Baltimore is a beautiful, waterfront city that's gone through an incredible renaissance in the past 15 years. It's loaded with cultural activities as well as places to just hang out and relax. The Walters Art Museum is an incredibly beautiful spot filled with works of art, including paintings by the Old Masters and stunning Greek sculpture. You should also check out the newly built Oriole Park at Camden Yards, home to the Baltimore Orioles baseball team. Thanks to the city's humid subtropical climate, Baltimore's springs are warm and wet. Summers are hot and humid, with temperatures in the low 80s. Winters tend to be pretty cool, with average temperatures in the high 20s. Sleet and freezing rain are more common in winter than snow.

Like the rest of its neighbors along the Eastern Seaboard, Baltimore sees all four seasons. The heat and humidity of July and August can make you melt, but the breezes off the Chesapeake are that much more welcome. This is high season, when you can catch an Orioles baseball game at vibrant Camden Yards, or take a boat tour of the Inner Harbor.
Spring is a great time to visit. In May you can party with the locals when the Preakness Stakes, the second stop of horse racing’s Triple Crown, hits Pimlico track north of the city. The long Memorial Day weekend brings Baltimore to life with music, festivals, and a long list of outdoor activities.
The beginning of autumn also offers agreeable weather. Watch the leaves on the trees begin to change as you stroll along the Inner Harbor and taste the salty air from the Chesapeake Bay. Or take in a Ravens football game at M&T Bank Stadium. Free Fall Baltimore, a festival of hundreds of free live art and cultural performances, runs the month of October.
Winter is cold here, with nights sometimes in the single digits. Snows come occasionally, especially for inland suburbs.
