Years ago I use to live in Hampden. Matter of fact I lived on the 34th street that has the annual Christmas lights show. Around Christmas times its a wonderfully over the top gaudy light show celebration. This was also before Hampden became trendy. (I would say its past trendy now though) When I first moved there it was having... More

This little town is loaded with places to eat, local shopping, day spas and consignment clothes and furniture shops. Great for walking in and dog and children friendly. People are riding bicycles, walking their dogs and chatting up visitors, thanking them for visiting their little village.

Loved spending our day after Thanksgiving here! We strolled the entire Avenue, shopped for shoes at a chocolate shop/shoe store, fell in love with many lovely stores, drank coffee and experienced a very eclectic and artful atmosphere. The antique and thrift stores had some excellent finds, and the prices were quite good. I felt at home in this district, where... More

We make an annual pilgrimage to 34th Street in Hampden. There's nothing like it to get into the Christmas spirit! There are street vendors, you can get your photo with the Grinch or with Santa himself and everyone is just out to enjoy and marvel at the displays the good people of Hampden put out every year! So much fun!

Such a cute place...Always feel like I'm a little back in time. Until I go to the restaurants...all terrific. Especially like the Fresh Market. Hampden is a great place also to stop and shop on your way to or from Clipper Mill if you're on your way to Woodberry Kitchen.

Yep, that's what we say in Bawlmer..... This is a very cute district with a lot of distinct shops and restaurants. The "feel" of this neighborhood is very Baltimore and is well deserving of a visit, especially Christmas time on 34th street where the houses come to life with lights.

We love Hampden - lots of great restaurants, nice shops, and friendly people. We enjoy restaurants such as the Food Market, Corner BYOB, Golden West (great brunch) and Alchemy. The Charmery has some of Baltimore's best ice cream, always with a local flavor or 4. Kitchy stores abound - some of our favorites are Bazaar Oddities and Curiosites, Lovely Yarns... More

A visit to Baltimore must include a trip down "da Avenue, Hon." Denise Whiting of Cafe Hon has helped put this little neighborhood on the big Baltimore Map. It is kitchy and locals don't mind making fun of their area and themselves!

From dining to the daily life of residemts, Hampden is fiercely independent and different. Top notch chefs, poets, beer can artists and urban rednecks live work and play in togetherr in Hampden. They are proud of Hampden which lends to its charm. For a visitor to Baltimore, you coupd get a feel for the quirks of the town as well... More

I love Hampden. My wife and I moved to Hampden last year and this neighborhood rocks. From the Christmas street, parks and recreation, the Rotunda, the light rail, the Avenue on 36th Street, you'll never be bored. There are numerous shops and restaurants and we're located in a pet friendly neighborhood where everyone looks out for one another, you'll love... More
