Baltimore Attractions

Roland Park, which is west of Falls Road & across the street from Cross Keys, has many fine restaurants, a library, grocery store, pharmacy, retail shops & banking.

The Inner Harbor creates a wonderful ambiance. You can walk along the water on the promenade that goes to Canton and enjoy watching the yachts arrive and depart from the various marinas. The Inner Harbor area contains terrific restaurants and museums, including The National Aquarium, The Science Center and The Visionary Arts Museum.  In the winter you can try your turn on the new ice rink and in the summer picnic in the park at Federal Hill on the site where Francis Scott Key composed The Star Spangled Banner.  Fells Point, Harbor East, Federal Hill and Canton, surround the inner harbor.

Just a few miles away is Fort McHenry, now a national monument, whose flag surviving a night of British bombardment inspired Key’s verses. Harbor East is new to the downtown landscape and is Baltimore’s Rodeo Drive, with some superior shopping, cuisine & two top of the line hotels, The Four Seasons & The Waterfront Hyatt.

The Mount Vernon area is the site of the nation’s first public monument to George Washington as well as the excellent Walters Art Museum and the Peabody Institute, an acclaimed music school.

Mount Washington is northwest of Cross Keys and has an abundance of beauty parlors, restaurants, wine stores, a grocery store & retail.

Hampden is just southeast of Cross Keys and has many vintage shops, restaurants, hair salons & interesting activities.

Fells Point, with its cobblestoned streets, is super charming & funky. Bars, live music & whimsical shops dot the streets. It is lively and animated.

Little Italy has some great restaurants and coffee shops.

The Baltimore Museum of Art, with the world-famous Cone Collection, is only a few miles away, adjacent to the Homewood campus of Johns Hopkins University offering a plethora of lectures, concerts and other intellectual distractions including the Homewood House museum in the property’s original 1803 mansion.
