Rent a car in Baltimore, a city close to the heart of many Americans, where Francis Scott Key wrote the lyrics for the Star Spangled Banner. Under an hours drive from Washington DC, Baltimore is easily accessible and accommodates for day-trippers, as well as those keen to spend a little longer visiting the city and its amazing harbour. Auto Europe offers several car hire pick up locations in Baltimore, Maryland, and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Baltimore is both easy and economical.
The history of Baltimore is a long and detailed one, with the city having seen more than its fair share of action and events significant to the country that is the United States of America today. The historic Battle of Baltimore was fought here, where American defences withstood attacks from the English Army and have remained an important event symbolising the efforts of American troops during the war. The city saw the first casualties of the American Civil War also, and the Civil War Museum is definitely worth checking out. For a unique experience, drive your rental car down to the USS Constellation, which is moored in the harbour, and is the last sail-powered ship built for the US Navy, and also the last Civil War-era ship still afloat.
Since the days of the Civil War, Baltimore has emerged as a city with one of the highest African-American populations in the country. Much culture and influence have derived from this, and Baltimore is known worldwide as being a highly influential city in the music world. Funk, House Music and Hip Hop all gained massive popularity there in the past few decades, and more historically Soul, Jazz, Gospel and Ragtime all benefited greatly from the artists developing these genres in the city.
For an insight into the art that has come from Baltimore, drive your hire car to the American Visionary Art Museum, which showcases many historical, as well as modern art pieces. The National Aquarium is also located in the city and is a great attraction for families, as are the ever popular Duck Tours, on which you will be taken around the city in an amphibious bus, showing you the sights on land, as well as on the water in the harbour.
