Where to Eat

Highlandtown is only a few blocks away from the harbor, so you get access to seafood right from the port. Maryland blue crabs and crab cakes alike are liberally covered with Old Bay seasoning and are a must-try. You also get access to a broad range of cuisine, from Moroccan delights to a classic American pizza place. The food scene attracts chefs that want a more affordable location to set up shop, compared to higher priced neighborhoods like Canton and Fells Point. There also are plenty of specialty grocery stores and markets if you like putting on the chef's hat.

The Perfect Sunday

Nothing beats heading over to Patterson Park with a picnic basket in hand. If that's not up your alley, an indoor ice skating ring and the dog park are both near the western side of Highlandtown. Take a leisurely walk down Eastern Avenue for window shopping and grab a lunch at the neighborhood cafe. One particularly unique draw to the neighborhood comes from the long running Baltimore Science Fiction Society, which offers a convention and other events primarily hosted right in Highlandtown.

Friday Night Fun

The Creative Alliance is one of the best starting points for your night. The nonprofit offers everything from art shows to rock operas, so you get plenty of variety in entertainment. The artist-in-residence program here gives you a first-hand look at what local artists are doing, as well as opportunities to buy their work. You have many restaurants to choose from, but the real treat comes from the food trucks. They're mostly located near the popular taverns and bars in the neighborhood.

Where to Live

Want to have the park that's known as "Baltimore's best backyard" as your yard? The western part of the neighborhood is bordered by Patterson Park, giving you easy access to hundreds of acres of well-maintained green space and many recreational facilities. You do pay for this privilege, however; if you want to get into a classic Baltimore formstone rowhouse without paying a premium, head over to the eastern side of the neighborhood. Also, don't get confused when someone pronounces Highlandtown as "Hollandtown"--it's just part of the regional slang you'll need to get used to when you live in Baltimore.

What You'll See

Young professionals and families that have lived in the area for generations walk side by side on the busy sidewalks. You see a huge mix of people enjoying the park, checking out the shows at the Creative Alliance, and taking in the art studios, public art displays and other cultural attractions.
