  • 1. Fell's Point
    Fell's Point, Baltimore, Maryland


    Mezze: Trendy tapas restaurant, quaint, romantic, great food/wine (reccomend the tempranillo or house sangria). No t-shirts or athletic shoes here. Nice jeans only or dress pants/dresses.

    Pazo: about 2 blocks from Mezze. same idea, is a tapas restaurants, this place has a dj, is slightly more expensive but is much larger. can accomodate large groups. I would say its slightly more trendy. no athletic shoes or t-shirts. nice jeans or dress pants. can be romnic but is also a party atmosphere. Very difficult to get into on weekend. If you are smart, GET RESERVATIONs!

    Black Olive: For a truly romantic seafood dinner this is an awesome place. A bit on the expensive side ($30 main course) it is well worth it. You order your fish and once its cooked perfectly, it is carved infront of you and served by teh chef. Its a nice touch. A different experience.

    BRUNCH: Blue moon cafe. you may have to wait but it is well worth it.

    BARS: Fells point is all about the bars!

    Max's: IS by far the most pupolar bar in fells point. It has about 50-100 beers on tap and another 200 or so bottled. Their menu is alphabetical and by country of origin. This is a bar for ber people or those who want to try something different.

    Weterfront Hotel: This is a historic landmark tht is now a bar. This place is very good for lunch. I hguhly recommend the turley brie sandwich.

  • 2. Power Plant Live!
    Power Plant Live!, Baltimore, Maryland

    Across the street from the inner harbor is the powerplant area. Here there are about 20 bars. There is something for everyone here. Just stroll around and pop you head into whatever bars looks good to you. Some of the bars appeal to early 20s crowd, soe appeal to older folks too. Just walk and enjoy the atomsphere.

  • 3. Inner Harbor
    Inner Harbor, Baltimore, Maryland

    So much to see and do here. Stay away from theme/chain dining (ESPN zone, Hard Rock and anything else that also operates in other cities). Obviously this is the place for seafood...which can be pricey. Phillips is touristly but a good option (less expensive). Locals go to the rusty scupper and Mccormicks. Both are expensive but are worth every penny. If you want to check out reviews online, go to opentable.com and choose baltimore (city is inner harbor).

    If its too hot or cold for sightseeing, the aqarium is excellent (but expensive). you may be able to get cheaper tickets online.

    ESPN zone playing games is fun (especially if you have kids with you) but you can go through lots of $$ in a short amount of time.

    Cultural/Arts: If you are looking for something interesting to do I would highly reccomend the visionary art museum. Most the artwork is completly different from other museums I've seen. Several pieces were created by schizophrenic individuals. Just facinating.

    Science center: This is a good option for kids 4-12. Older kids and adults will be bored.

  • 4. Mount Vernon
    Mount Vernon Cultural District, Baltimore, Maryland

    easy walk from inner harbor (15 mins) or short cab ride. Just go up charles street. Mt. Vernon has many statues (washington monument etc) and trendy ethnic restauraunts which can be found on opentable.com (baltimore, neighborhood is Mt. vernon) if you want to make a reservation or review ratings.

    Recommended restauratns for DINNER all within walking distnace:

    Sotto Soppra (not overly but no t-shirts. jeans/ dressy shirt and dress shoes maybe),

    Copras (great food, very nice, more casual but wear nice jeans and a nice shirt),

    Brass Elephant (more upscale/ dressy, no jeans)

    Brewers Art (If you life beer this is a must visit!), Bicycle (good restaurant, trendy, trendy casual)

    Owl Bar/ 13th floor (located on the 13th floor of the belvedere hotel, this bar has great views and good drinks. Would not reccomend for dinner, but is a great trendy bar to stop by for a romantic but expensive drink and a great view of the city)

    Red Maple (this is a super trendy bar/lounge with DJ. Great drinks and appetizing type foods for a quick snack. Would not reccomend for dinner though).

    For BRUNCH in MTV:
    XS cafe on charles street. They have ok sushi but are known for the brunch. Highly reccomend the waffles and fruit.

    Cultural Day: Start by getting a coffee at Donnas. If ar is your thing...Then walk over to the walters art museum. They have an impressive collection with something for everyone.

  • 5. Canton Waterfront Park
    Canton Waterfront Park, Baltimore, Maryland

    Canton is very nice and full of great bars. Until 7pm, can take water taxi from fells, inner harbor. Too long to walk. The main street is odonnell street. Its a short cab ride from Fells point. Canton is great for drinks. Only a few bars have a dj, so if dancing is your goal this neighborhood might not be best for you. Not close to inner harbor or mount vernon.
