Tickets in Baltimore


Inner Harbor
Any tour of Baltimore should start with the Inner Harbor, which offers: the Maryland Science Center, the National Aquarium, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Harborplace, the U.S.S. Constellation, the Pier Six Concert Pavilion, and The Power Plant, which houses several night-spots. In addition there are a number of excellent hotels, many fine restaurants, and two very busy marinas. On summer nights, the Inner Harbor is mobbed with people enjoying music and entertainment.

The intersection of Charles Street and Baltimore Street provides the framework for downtown Baltimore. This area, is the city's primary business district. It's filled with great places to eat--everything from breakfast and lunch counters to four-star restaurants. Another wonderful feature is the large number of art galleries that line Charles Street, such as the C. Grimaldis Gallery, which offer a relaxing afternoon diversion.

To the North
Proceed up Charles Street about 10 blocks and you'll find Mount Vernon, one of the city's loveliest neighborhoods. Its chief feature is a park of shrub-lined lawns and flowerbeds, laid out in the form of a cross. Standing at the center of the park is a 178-foot tall monument to George Washington, which is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday, and offers a great view of the city. Mount Vernon is also home to the Peabody Conservatory of Music, The Walters Art Gallery, and the Enoch Pratt Free Library.

To the East
Immediately east of downtown is Little Italy, one of the city's most cherished neighborhoods. The area is known for its many restaurants. At last count, the 12 square blocks of little Italy hosted 20 restaurants.

Fells Point
Just past Little Italy is Fells Point. Fells Point is known for its craft and antique shops, restaurants, bars and coffeehouses. During the weekend the neighborhood is jammed with college-age revelers who flock to the many party-oriented dance clubs. But during the rest of the week, a mix of young urban professionals and bohemians come on the scene to eat at restaurants.Back To Top
