Earlier this month, I was in Baltimore for work. I was so tired and busy in the week before I left that I hadn't done a bit of research on what might be nearby to see and do in my downtime. Luckily, one of my comrades-at-arms was more on the ball and spirited us all off to Fell's Point.
Formerly an historic port, Fell's Point is now a neighborhood of mostly restaurants and shops. I found the shops lacking--there just weren't that many--but did find a few restaurants that were worth the cab fare from our hotel. (Favorites = Tapas Adela and Barcocina, which has horrible reviews, but I enjoyed it.)
And as a pretty spot to wander with my camera 'round my neck? Fell's Point excelled! So many softly shaded streets and beautiful boats and old bits of peeling paint and cobblestone....lovely!
If you're ever in the area, try to hop out on the water taxi at some point, too. Particularly for a Kansas land-lubber like me, the novelty of being out on the Bay was quite a treat.
