About Locust Point

A community that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places in Baltimore, Locust Point is unique in a wide range of different ways. For starters, it is what is known as a peninsula neighborhood - it is surrounded by the Locust Point Industrial Area from all sides. It's also something of a melting pot and has been the epicenter of many communities in the area. Locust Point is also the home of Fort McHenry, which itself played an essential role in the War of 1812.

Getting Around Locust Point

Around Locust Point

As is true with most of areas so close to downtown Baltimore, most of the residents of Locust Point live in two- and three-story row homes. If you have your heart set on owning a traditional house (or at the very least getting a patch of land for yourself), you would have to head north into Baltimore County or south into more suburban areas. There are a few apartment complexes in Locust Point, but even with the area's recent revitalization efforts you're still likely to end up in a row home - which is a unique experience in and of itself if you've never lived in one.

Locust Point, much like most of the other neighborhoods in Baltimore, is something of a melting pot in terms of its culinary scene. 1157 Bar & Kitchen is a popular hot spot for tapas, sandwiches and other light fare, while Sweet Caroline's is a great source for strictly American cuisine. If you're a fan of Indian food, you'll love options like Himalayan House. Be warned, it can fill up quickly, so you may want to get it to go.

A perfect Locust Point Sunday can take several different forms depending on exactly what it is you're looking for. If you're a history buff, Fort McHenry always has something to offer - as does the Baltimore Museum of Industry. If you're looking for the chance to get out and enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer, you'll love a trip over to nearby Latrobe. If relatives come in from out of town to visit, you'll want to take them to the Under Armour Locust Point campus to see the murals of local sports legends Cal Ripken, Michael Phelps, and Ray Lewis.

Depending on the time of year you're talking about, one thing you can expect to see in Locust Point are tourists. Not only do many visitors (and local school field trips) invariably head over to Fort McHenry, but Locust Point is also a Baltimore Water Taxi stop. The southern portion of Locust Point also has a cruise terminal, so on any given Saturday and Sunday afternoon you can head over and watch some of the biggest cruise ships you've ever seen go in and out of the port, taking thousands of tourists along with them.

If you're not planning on spending your Friday night at home, you'll probably be headed out into one of the many restaurants and sports bars in Locust Point. Popular options include Barracuda's Locust Point Tavern and City Limits Sports Bar. Locust Point is also just a short nine-minute drive from the Inner Harbor and you pass popular areas like Fells Point along the way. So, if you want to get out there among the people and have a few drinks with your friends you certainly aren't without your options.
