“Wait awhile to visit”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

The aria has a lot of construction going on in the area and it is hard to get around. We have visited before and parking is difficult but it is a very interesting to shop and find a nice place to eat.

“Sailors' Stopover”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

This an ideal place to lodge with a romantic companion for the night and stroll around the moonlit cobblestone streets. There are many pubs, restaurants, and shops within this historic waterfront community to explore.

During our most recent visit, we stayed at the Inn at the Black Olive, dined at The Olive Room for dinner, Jimmy's Restaurant for breakfast, and picked up a snack at Kilwins. We also went shopping for our son at aMuse Toys, and caught a water taxi from the Inner Harbor.

A couple other cool places we've noted for next time are The Sound Garden music store and The Horse You Came in On Saloon. The latter claims to be America's oldest saloon, established in 1775, and the final drinking place of writer Edgar Allan Poe.

Free 2-Hour parking is being offered on weekends in December before Christmas. The 10th Annual Olde Tyme Christmas Festival takes place 12/6/2013 - 12/8/2013.

“Well-maintained, interesting neighborhood with pubs and restaurants just brimming with history”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the Baltimore area! Spring, summer, and fall would be the best seasons to visit when the weather is pleasant and you can comfortably walk around. Fell's Pt Ghost tour, Bertha's Mussels, Horse You Came In On Saloon, and all the other cool, full of character places make it a must-visit.

“Have you all forgotten . . . .?”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

That this neighborhood is where there's nothing to do but bash a crab or ride a water cab? Or go to the Sound Garden on Thames Street to get a markdown version of The Wire? Or sneak into the houses of Senator Barbara Mikulski and Michael Phelps the Olympian? Baltimore has a charm that says for a distasteful visitor to mind his business, or either A. get whacked by a bottle of Natty Boh, B. Get hung up by the Latinos and a druggie named Wheelchair Marian, C. Get caught up by the ghosts of "Homicide" on the City Pier former TV set, or D. Become haunted by the ghosts of Isaac Myers and Frederick Douglass on nearby S. Dallas Street :-D Douglass came back after the end of the Civil War to buy 4 houses known as "Douglass Place". He and Myers formed the first Black shipping union on Caroline Street, and all you can currently do is watch and accept the Latinos as they blend in with the Ukrainians, the Greeks,and the Poles. Keep an eye out for Cinco De Mayo, and the Fun Festival held every first weekend in October. The area is ancient yet still top-notch, but watch out for The Latin Palace, Max's on Broadway, the Canton district that is catching up, and avoid nearby Perkins Homes at all cost!!! Fells Point is the swell joint! Look for the photographers on Gough St. and Broadway every October!! See ya!!

This is a nice area to visit, especially if you like little shops (a lot of antique shops), and restaurants.
