Life in Charm City

Baltimore is one of the country’s oldest, largest, and most diverse cities.

Located in central Maryland on the east coast of the United States, Baltimore resides in the heart of the nation’s economic, government, cultural, and social center. In this premiere location, the city is less than an hour away from Washington, D.C. and a few hours from New York City.

The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School’s main location is situated in Baltimore’s Harbor East neighborhood right next to the Inner Harbor. Once home to factories and businesses that comprised much of Baltimore’s industrial heart, Harbor East has emerged as the new pulse and direction setter for business in Baltimore, from established firms to newly relocated ventures and thriving startups.

What to do

Set sail on the dazzling Inner Harbor. For breathtaking city views, climb to the top of the first major monument erected for George Washington. Tour Fort McHenry, the birthplace of the country’s national anthem. Visit the home of famed writer Edgar Allen Poe and the birthplace of baseball immortal Babe Ruth. Sample wines at a local vineyard or taste what’s new at the latest brew pub. Cheer on the Orioles and Ravens. Explore creations by local artists, along with some of the finest medieval and Impressionistic art collections in existence (and everything in between). Enjoy year-round festivals, concerts, theater, neighborhood celebrations, and a spirit of welcome and inclusiveness.
