About Downtown

Historically, the Downtown neighborhood is the heart of Baltimore City. Here, you will find the Market Place, Charles Center, and the Inner Harbor. The Inner Harbor is a big tourist attraction with an educational focus thanks to the Maryland Science Center, Port Discovery Children's Museum, and the National Aquarium. Harbor Place is the main shopping area with plenty of dining and entertainment options. Visitors can take in good live music at the Power Plant Live, Sound Stage, and Harbor Place. And if that were not enough, Baltimore's Downtown is home of the NFL's Ravens and MLB's Orioles. A rich tradition in foods from Little Italy to Jonestown will delight your palate. And if you are lucky enough to stay for a while, Downtown boasts many major hotels to accommodate your stay.

Baltimore is a city of neighborhoods and food is an important distinction between them. In Downtown, it's all about choices. Your options range from contemporary American fare to steakhouses to Brazilian cuisine. Little Italy, of course, has great Italian food. For fresh seafood, the Inner Harbor's Rusty Scupper has provided great, a casual elegant atmosphere, and a beautiful view of the Harbor for more than 30 years.

Downtown Baltimore is a walking neighborhood with many opportunities to visit entertainment and cultural venues. The water taxis across the harbor are a fun way to spend an afternoon in good weather. Expect to see many tourists year-round at the Inner Harbor, but especially in the summer. During the school year, the Port Discovery Children's museum is a magnet for school trips, as is the Maryland Science Center and the National Aquarium. If you want to walk your way around those sites, you will see lots of children. If you are walkabout on Friday mid-day from June to November, you will get to enjoy the Fresh Friday Farmer's Market. The market is open from 10am to 2pm.

The largest indoor venue in Baltimore is in the Downtown neighborhood, Royal Farms Arena. Here on a Friday night you can enjoy various entertainment options, from singers to indoor soccer. If you're interested in grabbing a meal or drink instead, there are dozens of places to go do that within every cuisine and price level.

The perfect Baltimore Sunday must be in the spring and summer when the Baltimore Farmers' Market and Bazaar is open between 7am until Noon. All vendors make what they sell and you can find just about anything here. Hopefully the Orioles are in town and you can head over to Camden Yards to catch a day game. Afterward, head back to the Inner Harbor for dinner overlooking the water.
