Baltimore’s older citizens are clearly eager for Taylor Swift to visit the city on Sunday, having prematurely welcomed the pop star.
The Ravens host Swift’s friend Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship on Sunday as they battle for a spot in Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas.
The singer has cheered on her NFL boyfriend and the reigning Super Bowl champions at several of their games this season, including last week’s win against the Buffalo Bills in frigid Orchard Park.
And Baltimore residents are clearly hoping the 12-time Grammy Award winner will travel to M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday.
Brightview White Marsh, a senior living facility in the Baltimore area, shared a TikTok Wednesday in which older residents welcomed Swift to the city and shared their recommendations with her.

The heartwarming clip opens with her hit ‘…Are You Ready for it?’ plays in the background as an older gentleman says, “Taylor Swift, welcome to our great city of Baltimore!” There’s lots to see and do and while you’re here we hope you have a great time.’
Although he encourages the singer to have a good time, the man, smartly dressed in a Ravens cap and polo shirt, hopes that her boyfriend and his teammates’ visit to Baltimore won’t be as fun.
“We have one more thing to say to you: go Ravens,” he adds jokingly.
Other residents then offer their recommendations for tourist attractions, including a trip to the aquarium and a stroll through Inner Harbor.
Meanwhile, others, one of whom wore a Swiftie friendship bracelet, encouraged the global superstar to sample the local cuisine, urging her to try the crab cakes at Jimmy Seafood, grab a Berger cookie and, if she’s on time before the match arrives, to visit Miss Shirley’s for breakfast.
One lady is insisting that the Anti-Hero hitmaker must quickly return to the city, where Baltimore has more to offer than just football in the sports world.
She insists that Swift should make another trip to Baltimore to watch the city’s MLB team, the Orioles, play at Camden Yards with the 2024 season just over two months away.
The video ends with an employee insisting that Swift should “visit Brightview White Marsh,” before the camera panned around the living room to show the many residents cheering and waving Baltimore purple pom-poms.

However, it is not yet clear whether the Love Story singer will travel to Baltimore for the Chiefs’ sixth straight AFC Championship game.
Although she has attended most of the Chiefs games thus far leading up to the playoffs and their two postseason games, her Eras Tour will begin again in just a few weeks.
Swift hits the road again to kick off the international leg of her sold-out show, starting with four dates in Tokyo, Japan.
She will begin her stint in the Japanese capital on February 7, playing four shows and ending the day before the Super Bowl in Las Vegas.
If the Chiefs make it to the Super Bowl on Feb. 11, she may have to make a mad dash from Tokyo, where she just played her first shows in 2024, to the West Coast to cheer on Kelce.

She will then play shows in Australia and Singapore and will tour Europe for four months in the summer.
And according to reports last week, Kelce has made some big plans for Europe, with much of Swift’s tour coinciding with his football offseason.
The 34-year-old has apparently booked trips to vineyards in Italy and tables for dinners at some of Europe’s best restaurants, for the couple to enjoy on her days off.
Kelce’s final season is Feb. 11 with the Super Bowl, with teams then reporting for the preseason in early August. However, it was reported earlier this week that the tight end could join his brother Jason and retire at the end of this season.
