No matter how much we complain about how dirty the sand and water may be, we will never stop going.

12.) Federal Hill...need I say more

13.) Drinking Natty Boh whether you like the taste or not

25.) Baltimore's Artsy Side

Between Artscape and The Light City Festival, Baltimore has a great way of showing it's love for the arts.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments.
