Flea Market Deals in Baltimore
No matter where you are with your kids, when they hear the siren of a fire engine rushing to the rescue they always perk up. The lure of heroes, clad in rescue gear, riding upon a shiny red fire engine to help those in need is irresistible to the young imagination. After all, what little one doesn’t want to be a hero? Treat your “Little Hero” to a day at the Fire Museum of Maryland.
