Although Linthicum Heights is mostly known today as the home of BWI, it's been around much longer than the airport. The Linthicum Heights Historic District dates back to the 1910s, and it shows?colonial, Tudor, and Dutch Revival houses sprinkle its tree-shaded hills. These are sedate surroundings; if you want to get to the heart of Baltimore, though, it?s just a short trip away.Among the many museums downtown, the Baltimore Museum of Art holds the largest collection of Matisse paintings in the world, and the American Visionary Art Museum displays the works of self-taught artists. If you?re looking to get away from meticulously climate-controlled buildings, there?s plenty to do outside, too. The entire area surrounding the Inner Harbor of the Chesapeake Bay is known as the Baltimore National Heritage Area.
