Currently undergoing more than a billion dollars’ worth of transformative redevelopment, Baltimore’s Westside is rich with new reasons to visit. Once Baltimore’s original downtown business district, teeming with stores, markets and restaurants, the neighborhood is home to generations of African American history and culture. Nearby where Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong and Nat King Cole once performed at local nightclubs, modern theatergoers can catch Broadway’s finest touring productions at the Hippodrome Theatre at the France Merrick Performing Arts Center. The Westside is also home – or should we say resting place – to Edgar Allan Poe, buried at Westminster Hall burial ground, and to Lexington Market, the nation’s oldest continually-running public market. Railway historians will marvel at the meticulously restored trains and artifacts at the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum where visitors can hop aboard and ride the first few miles of passenger rail ever laid in the United States.
