Getting Around Bolton Hill

Around Bolton Hill

The locals have plenty of churches and synagogues to visit on a Sunday morning. It's not unusual, though, to see the locals jogging in the parks in the afternoon and walking dogs there, too. Of course, the good weather always brings out strollers down the avenues and swimmers to the Bolton Swim and Tennis Club.

Since Bolton Hill is so walkable, you can expect to see lots of people walking to restaurants and centers of entertainment. Public transportation includes Penn Station, which is a five-minute walk from the neighborhood, and the Light Rail system's Cultural Stop is at Howard Street. While other neighborhoods enjoy a reputation for having a more active nightlife, Bolton Hill does have a handful of neighborhood bars and galleries.

You can expect to see culture, entertainment, and education all around Bolton Hill. The neighborhood is part of the Baltimore Cultural District, which means being walking distance to symphony and opera houses, The University of Baltimore, Maryland Institute College of Art, the Peabody Conservatory and much more. There are also several parks including Arnold Sumpter Park and Eutaw Place Median Park.

The Bolton Hill neighborhood consists of a 9 x 6 block area which lies 1.5 miles from Baltimore's Inner Harbor and 2 miles from Camden Yards and the Ravens stadium. Within that less than square mile area, you will find grocery stores, schools, churches, parks, and an eclectic mix of restaurants. Local favorites include the popular B Bistro and On the Hill Café. Whether you prefer bistros or sidewalk cafes or charming bed and breakfasts, Bolton Hill has it in spades.

Bolton Hill is mostly a residential area with lots of character. Many of the residential buildings are red brick row houses with front steps gleaming in white marble. Inside, the row houses are three stories with high ceilings. Of course, there are single-family homes here, which are usually of a more ornate architecture, and there are a few residential buildings that were built around the beginning of the 20th century. If you love history, you will love living where some of Baltimore's most well-known residents once called home, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Woodrow Wilson, The Cone sisters, and Florence Savin.
