Baltimore: A Monumental City
Baltimore contributed to the building of America. Our city prevailed while others were crushed.
When President John Quincy Adams made a toast in 1827 to Baltimore, the monumental city, his words were genuine and a testament to the importance of Baltimore in our nation’s growing history.
Generations of families continue to build on their own legacy in our great city. Anchor institutions are expanding further into neighborhoods, creating more jobs and community benefits. Businesses start here and build iconic brands. Baltimore continues to come together, breaking down silos in order to work together in united efforts to be greater still.
We know how to move our city forward – which keeps Baltimore relevant, interesting and the reason why over 14 million people visit our inner harbor every year.
From the quirky to the refined, Baltimore’s personality is specific, unique, and special. Whether you are here for the largest free art event in the nation or to seek medical attention at some of the world’s finest medical institutions, Baltimore conforms and accepts everyone. We are a gracious and welcoming city. We are monumental.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake
