Some mammals are housed in large barred cages that were built a century ago. The Maryland wilderness exhibit, where visitors explore a cave populated by timber rattlesnakes and walk under swimming river otters, is very popular, as is the children's barnyard.

Added Oct 23, 2009 by amandaslussThis large piece of wilderness (over 450 acres) offers miles of trails for hiking and jogging. One of the main trails circumscribes Lake Roland, which was once one of the city's main reservoirs. Other trails reach back into densely forested areas, some taking you over scenic footbridges and others through small tunnels. The only caveat is that the park is a popular destination for dog walkers, and the less rugged trails are often crowded. Otherwise, it's a great urban escape.

The kitchen here may not be as creative as others in Baltimore's Little Italy, but the dishes (mostly old favorites like Minestrone, Chicken Parmigiana and Saltimbocca) are well prepared, beautifully presented and moderately priced. And the portions are very generous. The staff is friendly and professional, the wine list is good and the apple-strudel cheesecake is a great way to end any meal.

The Black Olive, located in Fells Point, the heart of old Baltimore's maritime district, is perhaps the best. Only the freshest fish are displayed in The Black Olive's case, and guests can choose anything from locally caught Rockfish to more exotic fare. Selections are then grilled to perfection, filleted at table side and served with the house's amazing Mediterranean-style sauces.
