Tourism Tuesday: Mount Vernon

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015 by Allison Langley

mt vernonWhat: Mount Vernon (Neighborhood)

Where: Between N Calvert and Franklin

When: Anytime!

When I am “touristing” I think one of my favorite things to do is to visit new neighborhoods. Luckily, in Baltimore there is a wealth of neighborhoods to visit, one them being Mount Vernon. Mount Vernon is located just north of downtown Baltimore. It is a beautiful and historical neighborhood, it is known as one of the oldest neighborhoods in Baltimore. It houses the first Washington Monument; it’s hard to miss! Along with its history there are great restaurants and other cool spots to see.
Check out Dooby’s while you’re in the neighborhood or maybe have a nice read at the beautiful George Peabody Library, or marvel at the grandeur of Mt. Vernon place United Methodist Church. I would recommend to simply sit down on a park bench, while it is still fall, and enjoy the scenery!
