Our City, Our Baltimore – known for its irresistible charm – is so much more than sad news that lands hard and travels fast in every place. Baltimore is more than its struggles; and we are more than alright.
Even as we face our challenges, we proudly boast of the finest medical systems in the world – where lives are healed and miracles happen every day. Ours is a college town with superior schools of higher learning – where students from every nation on earth come to launch their future and a world of new possibility; where groundbreaking research is conducted and prized.
Areas of our City still require our determined efforts, while others pulse with new energy, new business, new restaurants and new neighbors. Our major league teams, world-acclaimed musical life, celebrated museums and acclaimed performance theaters draw tens of thousands of neighboring residents and tourists from far and wide. They have come to know and value what we’ve known all along.
This is our Baltimore – a community we cherish – a City with guts and pride and a legacy unrivaled; a City of youth and potential, a City of determination and spirit. We are every color and creed, every nationality, orientation and persuasion. We are committed, we are hopeful; we are strong and moving forward. We Are Baltimore.
