Getting Around Canton

Around Canton

The waterfront section of Canton gives you the best views and puts the stores, marinas, and other attractions at your doorstep. This convenience does come at a price, as this part of the neighborhood has the highest housing costs. In the northern part of Canton, you end up right next to Patterson Park, a large urban green space with many things to do. Housing in Canton is split between new development apartment and condo buildings and renovated Baltimore row homes.

Canton offers an excellent variety of restaurants. Seafood places are popular and the proximity to the Inner Harbor results in access to some of the area's freshest catches. Locally owned bistros and cafes give you plenty of options for lunch, with Italian, American, and pub-style eateries rounding out the most common offerings. However, there are many interesting fusion places that mix things up for adventurous eaters. Chain restaurants are also available in this neighborhood if you like a predictable experience.

Start at O'Donnell Square, the town's center, which puts you near many options for the rest of the day. Browse the aisles at the nearby library, or visit one of the many cafes that have brunch down to a science. The Canton Dog Park offers quality time with your furry friends, plus more opportunities to meet your neighbors.

Start your evening off by watching the sunset along the waterfront at Two Rivers Park. As it starts to get dark, head to one of the dozens of nearby eateries. Then you can head over to the bowling alley or take your board games out to bars hosting game nights.

Young professionals enjoying the waterfront park, commuters using Canton as their base to easily get to their jobs in the city, and plenty of community activities are common sights. Canton feels like a small town even though it's near the heart of Baltimore. The neighbors are friendly and know each other's names, and there are many community activities that strengthen this feeling.
