Grand Prix Downtown Baltimore Baltimore Fun - (cool) progeny

Grand Prix weekend is just around the corner — and downtown Baltimore businesses have tons of fun things happening for families!

Yes, that’s right. Downtown DOESN’T shut down when the Prix comes to town!

In fact, Prix management is pulling out all the stops to make the whole race experience more family-friendly. With purchase of a regular adult admission ticket, a junior general admission ticket for kids 12-years-old or younger is free. The Celebration of Acceleration takes place August 30th through September 1st.

With so many attractions close to the race course (or a quick Circulator ride away), it’s easy to keep the adventure going all weekend long without breaking the bank. Here are some (cool) tips.

  • Kids get in FREE at the B&O Railroad Museum with a paying adult August 31st through September 2nd. There’s also FREE parking.
  • Have you checked out Ripley’s Odditorium yet? They’re offering a ‘buy one ‘three way combo’, get another ‘three way combo’ ticket of equal or lesser value FREE! Stay in the know before you go by reading Lara’s review.
  • The National Aquarium is bringing back their 7 day pass! The price of one admission gets you access to everything under the sea for a whole week. Be sure to visit the new Blacktip Reef Exhibit.
  • Lexington Market is always a sure bet with hungry kids. Take your kids to Faidley’s Market to taste Baltimore’s best crab cake and treat them to some Berger Cookies for dessert.
  • Need to let the kids burn off a little energy before start time? Port Discovery is offering a great deal! Buy one admission at regular price and get one admission half off when you show your Grand Prix 2013 wristband. Harbor Park Garage, at Lombard Street and Market Place, offers $7 parking to guests on Saturdays and Sundays, too.
  • Head to The Walters Art Museum for some FREE crafty fun on Saturdays and Sundays as part of their Drop In Art Program. It never disappoints!
