Seven Mile Market - supposedly the largest kosher supermarket in the country.

Market Maven (formerly Seasons) - great prices for meat and chicken, also good place for shabbos food


Hotels:
Only 1 Close and decent hotel to Jewish area (but not quite walking distance) is this Hilton Doubletree

Otherwise, there are a number of nice hotels downtown (which is also the inner harbor area) and near BWI airport. There are no shuls in the downtown area with regular minyanim, aside from Mincha minyanim in various offices.



Restaurants in the Jewish area (in no particular order):

Dairy

Dunkin Donuts - 2 kosher locations
Here and Here

Coffee Bean - 1 kosher location
Here

Sapori - sit-down Italian place

Milk & Honey Bistro - dairy homestyle cooking

Goldberg's Bagels - very good bagels and free wifi. Pikesville location is the one in the Jewish area

Mama Leah's - pizza that is a bit different, but IMHO (Lunatic), the best pizza in Baltimore

Tov Pizza - classic pizza shop - Mocha thinks this is a hell of a lot better than ^

Caramel's - pizza shop, also has sushi

Eden Cafe - located inside the JCC (Closed as of July 2019)

Cocoaccinos - cafe with sandwiches and salads

Not luxurious wouldn't bother me but it has a lot of bad reviews regarding cleanliness.

BWI area has several good options that you can book with points. It may be 20-25 minutes drive into Baltimore, however the extra 10 min may be worthwhile for you.

Really depends on Traffic. Can take 25 minutes into Baltimore without traffic or upwards of 45 minutes with Traffic.

No beaches within an hour of Baltimore. Maybe you mean a waterfront hotel?

Anapolis  which has beaches is around a hour. Chesapeake Bay has some nice quiet spots.

Downtown.
Have not been there is years but start with https://www.portdiscovery.org/ if your kids are age appropriate like under 10.

There are some nice quiet parks/boating area/ nature in different areas of Maryland depending where you based.

I guess I was right about it being old but not updated about it getting renovated.   ;D
