Looking for summer fun for Baltimore families?!
We are so excited that summer is upon us! Baltimore is a hot spot for summer fun to do with your children. See what we did there? ;-) Doulas of Baltimore is here to share with you 5 great outdoor activities to do with the whole family. And we’ve got 5 great indoor suggestions to do on those days when you want to cool down. Here we go:
Baltimore families love this concert series at Belvedere Square in north Baltimore City. Food, music, and lots of kid-friendly activities! There are three Friday evening concerts this summer – Mambo Combo on June 30, Luau Block Party on July 28, and The Kelly Bell Band on September 8.
American Visionary Art Museum hosts “Flicks from the Hill” every Thursday night this July. This summer features old classics and new ones too – West Side Story, Shrek, To Sir With Love, and Hairspray! There are food trucks and pre-film activities. Plus the museum is open to enjoy for free from 5-9pm on flick nights!
If it’s more live music you’re craving, head downtown to WTMD’s First Thursday Concert series! WTMD hosts live family friendly concerts on the first Thursday of the month at Canton Waterfront Park, all summer long. Bring a picnic and enjoy!
You can never go wrong with a visit to the zoo. The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is a delight! There is much to learn about the animals, the park, and the many ways the zoo participates in conservations efforts. This summer the Zoo is hosting Twilight Strolls – bring the whole family for an evening walk!
And if you or the kids have had enough of the Baltimore heat…head inside to these great locations!
The Walters Art Museum is a fun and educational place for the little ones! Rooms full of armor, mummies and Egyptian artifacts, and much more. Don’t miss the Chamber of Wonders – hours could be spent there alone!
The aquarium is the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day! It’s a bigger investment than many of our favorites. And so worth it if you can make a day of it! From the reefs of Australia, up to the newly redone upland rainforest, and down the dark ramp with sharks – let’s just say everyone will sleep well at the end of the day!
With locations across the city, in addition to the gorgeous downtown main branch, Baltimore’s free public libraries also offers special events including computer basics, chess, and parent/child reading groups.
Last but certainly not least with the preschool set – A historic museum that includes kid zones and train rides! Fun for everyone!
