Charm City's Inner Harbor features enough mega-stores, restaurants, and maritime attractions to keep you busy for a week. But don't let that stop you from exploring Fell's Point, one of Baltimore's most vibrant neighborhoods. It's a great place to spend a summer day.
On the Waterfront
Start your morning with breakfast or brunch at Blue Moon Café, a fun, casual restaurant serving traditional as well as Latin-inspired breakfasts. The delicious huevos rancheros, topped with spicy chorizo, eggs, and chile verde, comes with homemade, crispy hash browns ($6.95).
Now that you're fortified and caffeinated, delve into Broadway Market, just south of Fleet Street. "Experience" is the operative word: The historic market hosts a dizzying array of seafood, flowers, wines, cheeses, meats, and more.
Once you've walked through the market, you're back on Broadway, headed toward the historic docks that date to the 18th century. Shopping, more than sailing, is the draw in today's Fell's Point, and there's plenty of it. Eclectic Elements sells unique furniture and global accessories ranging from high-end to downright cheap. Across the street, check out Southern Accent and Petticoat Tea Room for bath products, Provence tablecloths, and ladies-who-lunch fare.
