not a bad city....
smallish, excellent crab cakes and seafood. Nice boat tour of Chesapeake Bay about 15 years ago when I went. Overall, not bad: traffic was horrific but lots of bigger cities are that way. I'd put it in the middle of the pack.
I certainly prefer Chicago, Boston, NY, etc...but B-more is decent. I mean, it couold be worse: I live 3 hrs. from Detroit and haven't been there in YEARS. (why would I)
