storing luggage

I will have a 6 hour layover at BWI this summer on my way to Europe. I want to store my luggage while I go to Baltimore Harbor for the day. The airport tells me they have no storage lockers. Any suggestions?

Why wouldn't you just check your bags all the way through? Unless you are talking about storing your carry-on luggage, which is a different thing.

"can't check luggage with the airline until 6pm."

Doug means checking your bags all the way through from your initial departure airport to your final destination. When you check in at your first airport, they can tag the bags for your final destination and you won't see them at BWI. You wouldn't see them again til you land in Europe.

Many lines have interline baggage agreements. I don't know about Southwest and BA, but you really should check to see if you can check your bags all the way through. It may very well be possible. The fact that you're flying two different airlines doesn't necessarily mean you can't check your bags through to the final destination.

I don't think WN (Southwest) interlines.

Southwest absolutely does not interline luggage, so you will need to collect your luggage at BWI.

I would be shocked if there is any luggage storage at BWI, meaning that your only options are likely to be getting a day room at an airport hotel or renting a car and leaving the luggage in the trunk.
