Featured Neighborhood: Fells Point

The contributors to the Fells Point Community site explain why their neighborhood is a must-see for anyone visiting Baltimore: "With its cobbled stone streets and its waterfront location, Historic Fells Point has long been a favorite attraction for young and old alike. An eclectic collection of stores and boutiques offering gifts, flowers, home and garden accessories, candles, antiques, clothing, home furnishings, jewelry, toys, souvenirs, and much more are scattered throughout.


Fells Point Street

In Fells Point, 18th- and 19th-century buildings on cobblestone streets house bars, restaurants, clothing and jewelry stores, and the Sound Garden, voted Baltimore's Best Music Store for the last 10 years.


"Alongside these stores, you'll find a charming selection of pubs, restaurants, and night clubs. From casual to fine dining, and from sports to jazz, there's always something for everyone's taste."

New development occurs all around the neighborhood, yet there still exists a small town feel in the community as the majority of the businesses are locally owned and operated and all you need can be found right here." (Quoted from and courtesy of the Fells Point Community website.)  Learn more»
