Good Food, Good Times, and a Great Baltimore 4th of July!

Good food, good drinks, and fireworks are all staples of the 4th of July, and all of them are available this Independence Day in Baltimore! Not only is Baltimore a fantastic place to celebrate this national holiday, it also played a big role in the battle for American independence, with the city serving as the temporary capital of the colonies for three months, and after all, it’s the birthplace of the Star Spangled Banner. This historic city is ripe with 4th of July activities, all not too far from your home here at Union Wharf.
