Sometimes whenever I'm in Maryland or Virginia for a visit I see the term "Baltimore-Washington Area".

Baltimore and Washington are grouped together for US Census purposes and normally considered one media market. They also each have a separate census metro designation, although these stats are used less often.

They are very close together and share suburbs. Many people in the Baltimore area work in DC and some from Washington work in Baltimore (though that number is less).

Despite being about 40 miles distant they are two very different cities.

In the traveling work commuter sense of the word I believe it's tied in together. Often hear it expressed as part of the Greater Washington DC metropolitan area by newscasters. There are two MARC commuter trains coming in to/leaving DC. They are the Penn and Camden lines.

I think this is the easy answer to the original question, although of course driving from Baltimore to DC certainly isn't the easiest thing to do. It's rare to see two cities the size of Baltimore and DC so close together.

They fall in the same combined statistical area (CSA). I think of Washington DC and Baltimore as a double-metropolis. Their metro areas are also well-connected by I-95, the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, U.S. route 1 and U.S. route 29. There is continuous suburban development between the two cities.

Baltimore

Here is what I am referring to. The Baltimore-Washington is a combined statistical region according to the OMB. Each city has its own submarket and various designations, but I think it is best thought of as one pizza with mushrooms on one side, pepperoni on the other.
