  • The waterfront promenade is a great way to enjoy a sunny day in Baltimore. From Harborplace, you can walk east through lovely waterfront neighborhoods—Harbor East, Fells Point,Canton. Great watering holes, pubs, and coffee shops! Ronald Schnaar, Professor
    The Chesapeake Bay is one of the premier sailing areas in the world. I love sailing my boat and spending time on the water. Ernst Niebur, Professor
    I love the Crab Cake Cones from the Gypsy Queen (gypsyqueencafe.com) food truck when they’re on campus. Jenn Orthmann Murphy, MD, PhD (Postdoc, Bergles Lab)
  • The year-round ultimate frisbee leagues in Catonsville and the Neuroscience department softball team. Travis Faust, Graduate Student (Sawa Lab)
    I’m new here, so getting lost biking through Baltimore has been a great way to explore. The murals are beautiful. Also, it’s wonderful to be living in a city that is celebrated for their crab dishes—my favorite comfort food! Raina D’Aleo, Graduate Student
    Each neighborhood in Baltimore has a unique personality offering a variety of affordable food options. I love the charcuterie selection at Trinacria and Parts & Labor. Wendy Xin, Graduate Student (Bonci Lab)
