we found a great place to park at 3333 Keswick Rd. which is right around the corner, while we had to pay, it was a bargain compared to driving around for an hour and trudging around too Kids loved it, and it made it soo much more enjoyable since they could really enjoy it!

The Elvis festival is here!!! That should be reason enough to love Hampden. Okay, every restaurant is fantastic! There are many over prices shopping that is worth finding parking. Funny cards, and novelties that you must have are in several shops. The best wine stores are in this area. An upscale adult toys store is around the corner. Original art... More

Hampden is a great little area. It is a very eclectic area with unique shops and restaurants. Great area to just walk around and look. Great place to visit at any time of the day or evening.

For many years the owners of the row houses on this one block of 34th street have put up lighted Christmas decorations at Christmas time. A wonderful sight to behold! I go every season and never get tired of it. Bring your camera.

On a recent business trip to Baltimore, my husband and I found ourselves with some time to kill. We stumpled upon Hampden, we were in Heaven! The shops and food were unique...as was the area. The shop owners were very pleasant and helpful. We left with a very good start on our Christmas shopping.

We live in Greater Baltimore and Hamden is our favorite spot to visit. Just window shopping can be fun and interesting, The variety of reasonably priced restaurants is outstanding and the neighborhood is virtually devoid of chain stores. Ice Cream from the Charmery is a must!

34th Street is the place to be on New Year's Eve and the days leading up to Christmas and the new year. The street is amazing with all their lights and decorations. However, as it gets closer to midnight, it is not suitable for young children, as there are many drunk people and can be a little dangerous.

This place has some of the best Baltimore can offer on a local scale. Great restaurants, cafes and ice cream mixed with local charm. The buildings are old and beautiful and the neighborhood boasts fun annual events like Hampden Fest.
