Best Things to Do This Winter in Baltimore City

Inner Harbor Rink

One of Baltimore’s beloved traditions is to skate in the outdoor ice rink in the inner harbor. Located between the Harborplace Pavillions overlooking the water, meet friends, bring the kids, or plan the perfect date ice skating. Open from November to January.

Christmas Village in Baltimore

Step into a winter wonderland at Baltimore’s Christmas Village, a magical fusion of indoor and outdoor delights in the charming West Shore Park at the Inner Harbor. Inspired by Germany’s famous Christmas markets, wander through wooden booths filled with European treats, unique gifts, and local artisanal crafts—perfect for your holiday shopping spree. Sip on warm holiday drinks while you take in the enchanting twinkling lights and Christmas Village charm. Whether it’s the aroma of delicious waffles or the cheerful ambiance of the heated festival tent filled with artisans, this experience promises to immerse you in the joyful spirit of the season.

Holly Jolly Trolley Tour

After a morning of ice skating, hop on the Holy Jolly Trolley for a special historical tour to see the holiday lights in Baltimore’s most festive neighborhoods. The 90-minute tour, hosted by a Baltimore Rent-A-Tour professional guide, is one of the best ways to see a large part of Charm City as it takes you through decorated streets like Downtown Baltimore, Harbor East, Fells Point, Mt. Vernon, Center Plaza, and Hampen’s 34th Street Christmas Festival of Lights.
