  1. You visited about the same number I did, only mine were all in DC, Maryland, or Virginia.
    When you visit Baltimore, I recommend you go to the Walters and the Baltimore Museum of Art, two art museums which were free when I visited and, as far as I know, still are.
    The American Visionary Art Museum has an admission fee but it is highly worth it.
    The Aquarium is pricey, but there’s a lot to see there.
