You are now in "Charm City, USA" where the benches read, "Baltimore: The Greatest City in America" and the locals call each other "hon!"

Baltimore is a center of art, music, literature, culture and, of course, crabs. The city, located alongside the Chesapeake Bay, was founded in 1729 and named to honor the title of Maryland's founding family, the six Lords Baltimore. Baltimore is officially divided into nine geographical regions, with Charles Street separating East/West and Baltimore Street separating North/South.
