Tourism Tuesday: Fells Point

October 13th, 2015 by Allison Langley

Fellspoint What: Fells Point

Where: Main Street, Baltimore, MD

When: Anytime!

When in Baltimore one must stop by Fells Point (a personal favorite). The entire neighborhood is filled with character from the cobble stone streets, to the colorful townhouses with the unique doors. It is a historical neighborhood that began in 1726 when shipping company was built at its waterfront.

Fells is filled with pubs, restaurants, and boutiques. Dine at Alexander’s Tavern and enjoy their many different varieties of tatters tots … so good. Stop by One- Eyed Mikes for a drink afterwards and maybe sooth your palette with Pitango Gelato. For those music lovers, which I hope you all are, go to the Sound Garden and pick up your favorite vinyl.

Not in the mood to shop, eat or drink? That’s fine! Enjoy a trip on the Water Taxi, or a Baltimore Ghost Tour; quite fitting for October!

There is an ample amount to do and see when visiting Fells Point!
