Just because Baltimore is rife with city bustle doesn’t mean there aren’t several places to kick back and relax. As the winter gloom is replaced by the warmth of a new season, residents of the land of pleasant living can take advantage of springtime with the perfect picnic. Several areas on the outskirts of Baltimore and within the heart of the city feature picturesque areas to enjoy your favorite snacks, beverage and company. Picnicking areas in Baltimore are also rich with history that are worthy of a few photos.

Rocks State Park lives up to its name with its intricate rock formations and mountainous crag. A naturalist’s dream come true, the scenic park is a favorite spot for hike enthusiasts as well as joggers and dog walkers. Picnicking can take place at Hills Grove, Wilson’s or Rock Ridge areas, which feature seating, grills, playgrounds and (very clean) restrooms. Before heading home, visitors would be wise to stop by the “King and Queen’s Seat,” which is a famous rock formation that has been privy to many photo ops during its long lifespan.
