Baltimore is a cultural crossroads of the United States, a city that draws inspiration from the North and South, and makes up the rest. Baltimore has regal mansions, a gritty urban waterfront, great nightlife, a few places where you shouldn’t be after dark, enough character for three cities, and enough neighborhoods for four. Some of these neighborhoods are only a block or two long, which explains why Baltimore has so many, but they each have their own personality.
Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is the commercial heart of the city, thanks to a steady flow of tourists who come for attractions like the historic ships of the Baltimore Maritime Museum, the world-class National Aquarium, and the American Visionary Art Museum. Not to mention some of the city’s best restaurants, like the seafood and skyline views at Rusty Scupper. Nearby Fell’s Point has a great Little Italy, along with a wealth of independent boutiques and bars that keep the colorful neighborhood crowded.
Outsiders know North Baltimore best for the Baltimore Museum of Art. Natives know it for the exceedingly eccentric Hampden neighborhood, home of unique traditions like excessive Christmas decorations and Honfest, the celebration of a Baltimore archetype immortalized by local legend John Waters.
Midtown Baltimore is one of the coolest and most desirable parts of the city. The Bolton Hill neighborhood is full of beautiful homes, and also art students, thanks to the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). The school’s Brown Center brings plenty of events to the area. The Station North Arts District in Charles North features a ton of galleries and local favorites like the Charles Theatre movie house.
