Baltimore favorites

There’s no shortage of seaside attractions, welcoming outdoor spaces, and beloved old-world charm in Baltimore.

Fort Mchenry

Chevrolet Camaro 2017

AWESOME!! Absolutely AWESOME! This was my first use of Turo and it was more than I could have ever hoped for. Working with Andrew to complete the rental transaction was great. There were some initial difficulties but Andrew was patient and helpful in providing me the support necessary to resolve the problems. A great person to deal with. As for the car. WOW! Not only was it a gorgeous car to look at, it was a wonderful car to drive! I haven't had this much fun with a car as I did this one! It is a crying shame so many car manufacturers are moving away from manual transmissions on the floor and to paddle shifters on the steering wheel. Personally, I feel they do not give you the same feel for the car a manual tranny does. I can only hope the other Turo sponsors are as Gold Star as Andrew. He made this a great first time experience. As for the car, I truly hope I get the opportunity to drive it again. WOW!
