Baltimore At A Glance
Take a Look at Baltimore with All My Sons Movers
Few East Coast cities hold a sense of pride quite like Baltimore, Maryland. An independent city since 1851, Charm City is rich in history and culture. From battling the British to withstanding natural disasters, Baltimore’s victorious spirit continues to motivate growth and development throughout Baltimore. As your local moving company, All My Sons would like to introduce you to this Maryland city.
The War of 1812 brought attacks on Baltimore’s Fort McHenry after the British had burned Washington D.C. In the Battle of Baltimore, the British army’s attempts to overtake what they considered a “nest of Pirates” failed miserably. American forces repelled the British on both land and sea to emerge victorious. Almost two centuries later, Baltimore would face another difficult foe. In 2003, Hurricane Isabel propelled twenty feet of water into the Fells Point community and the Inner Harbor area, flooding neighborhoods, the Baltimore World Trade Center, and the sports center ESPN Zone. Turning disaster into opportunity, Baltimore used the rebuilding momentum to initiate a city-wide development and renovation campaign that is grabbing the attention of individuals and families curious to explore what living in Baltimore is all about.
This major building spree is sweeping through the downtown area, with much attention on the Inner Harbor East district. What once was a graveyard of abandoned, infested warehouses and rotting piers is quickly becoming the city’s center for upscale dining, trendy nightlife venues, and a retail paradise. The Baltimore Convention Center was renovated and expanded in 1996, bringing visitors and retailers to the area to enjoy Harborplace and the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland’s largest tourist destination. With the MLB’s Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards and the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium, the downtown area is the top choice for newcomers moving to Baltimore.
To accommodate the throngs of eager new faces, Baltimore has big plans for several towering additions to its beautiful skyline. Included is 717 foot tall 10Inner Harbor, a building that will house luxury condominiums, a hotel, and several restaurants and shopping venues. If life in the thick of downtown isn’t your cup of tea, try the lively neighborhoods of Federal Hill and Canton. Either way, our local movers can take you to the perfect place when you move to Baltimore.
