I find it interesting that I work at a Baltimore design firm—that was founded in Baltimore—yet, I am the only one that was born and raised and is “from” Baltimore. I have lived in Baltimore all of my life. I wouldn’t call myself an expert on the city, but I do love to explore more about the history, different neighborhoods, new restaurants—everything!
The Baltimore Sun posted a link this week titled, 100 things we love about Baltimore and obviously I scoured through it to get ideas for things I haven’t seen and to see if any of my “loves” were on there. So it got me thinking—I wonder what all of my co-workers find to be their favorite thing about Baltimore. And what is it that they loved from their hometown. Here are the results!
