Passing Through

Baltimore is also a major jumping off point to other cities in the country. Here’s a basic look at a few of the better airline deals we were able to find. Prices include all fees and are e-ticket prices for roundtrip flights with departures and arrivals during weekdays in April and May. See www.expedia.com for more details. As always, the further ahead you book, the cheaper it’ll be:
Los Angeles
Frontier Airlines flies to LA for $218. There’s a connecting flight in Denver, but your total travel time is seven hours and thirty-five minutes.
Chicago
United Airlines is offering direct flights to Chicago for $163 with a duration of about two hours.
New York
US Airways has flights to LaGuardia for $251, while Delta has direct flights to JFK for $231. Both flights take about an hour and a half.
Miami
American Airlines has a two-and-a-half hour direct flight to Miami for $143.
Seattle
Continental flies to Seattle in eight-and-a-half hours, with a connecting flight in Houston, for $214.
If you want to travel by rail, Baltimore’s Penn Station is centrally located on Charles St., just on the other side of the bridge that spans over I-83 and is hard to miss thanks to the giant mobile sculpture they’ve recently erected in front of it. Round trip to New York by train will only set you back $73 and get you there in a little over three hours.
Greyhound is also downtown, just a few blocks west of Charles St. on Fayette St. Round-trip to New York by bus will cost $65 if you buy the ticket less than three days before your departure date, $45 if you book at least three days in advance and, oddly, $58 if you book seven days in advance.
