The article presents information on tourism in Baltimore, Maryland. For many tourists, Baltimore's allure begins in the scenic waterfront area of Inner Harbor and historic Fort McHenry, but there is much more to see in "Charm City." Baltimore boasts a great city zoo with over 2,200 animals. But it also has a zoo like no other city, one that's not for the faint of heart. At the Insect Zoo, take a tour with an entomologist and see exhibits filled with cockroaches, spiders, flies, and a variety of other insects.
