Baltimore is the largest city in the U.S. state of Maryland. Founded in 1729, Baltimore is the second largest seaport in the Mid-Atlantic. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor was once the second leading port of entry for immigrants to the United States and a major manufacturing center. After a decline in major manufacturing, Baltimore shifted to a service-oriented economy, with the Johns Hopkins Hospital (founded 1889), and Johns Hopkins University (founded 1876), now the city’s top two employers. With hundreds of identified districts, Baltimore is known as “a city of neighborhoods”. Almost a quarter of the jobs in the Baltimore region are now in science, technology, engineering and math, in part attributed to its extensive undergraduate and graduate schools.

Weather: Baltimore lies within the humid subtropical climate zone. Winters are cool but variable, with sporadic snowfall: January has a daily average of 35.8 °F (2.1 °C). The average seasonal snowfall is 20.1 inches (51 cm), but it varies greatly depending on the winter. Spring and autumn are warm, with spring being the wettest season in terms of the number of precipitation days. Summers are hot and humid with a daily average in July of 80.7 °F (27.1 °C), and the combination of heat and humidity leads to rather frequent thunderstorms. However, generally speaking, weather is pleasant for outdoor activities most of the year.
