Baltimore Arts – Just Down the Road

Baltimore Arts, just down the road logo.

Those of us who live in Baltimore County know how important the City is to the entire region. We benefit from the exceptional arts and cultural attractions just down the road from county residents. These are places people travel from all over the world to see and they’re so close to us.

Watch a video of County Executive Kevin Kamenetz as he calls on every Baltimore County resident to come to the City and take advantage of what’s great there. Wherever you live, Baltimore arts are just down the road. Learn more about some of Baltimore City’s world class attractions.
