1. Graffiti Alley
Mount Vernon Place in the heart of Mount Vernon
Constructed shortly after the Battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812, the obelisk monument was designed by Robert Mills, who years later designed the Washington Monument in D.C. While the monument looks pretty from any of the four grassy squares surrounding it, you can get amazing views of the city by climbing to the top.
3. Domino Sugars Sign
333 W. Camden St. downtown
Consistently named the most beautiful ballpark in America, Oriole Park at Camden Yards is celebrating its 25th anniversary as the home of the Baltimore Orioles. The park is picture-perfect, as are the array of Baltimore-centric stadium food offerings like pit beef sandwiches at Boog’s BBQ and the crabby mac-and-cheese filled pretzel cone at the Club Grille.
5. American Visionary Art Museum
300 Warren Ave., Federal Hill neighborhood (named after the hill)
Federal Hill offers one of the most picturesque Inner Harbor views, and has long been a Baltimore landmark.It was a defensive stronghold during the War of 1812 because of its panoramic view of the city. Today, that view makes it ideal for postcard-perfect pics.
7. Patterson Park Pagoda
Fell’s Point and Pennsylvania Avenue
The revered songstress spent her childhood in Baltimore and regularly returned in adulthood to perform at legendary venues like the Royal Theatre. Baltimoreans have paid homage to the icon with public art. Capture stunning Billie Holiday murals throughout Upper Fell’s Point, her childhood neighborhood, and at the corner of Pennsylvania and North avenues. Also visit the bronze statue at the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and W. Lafayette Street.
9. Rawlings Conservatory
20 locations throughout the city
Love is literally spelled out throughout the city thanks to local artist, Michael Owen, who has painted 20 murals of silhouetted hands spelling “L-O-V-E” in neighborhoods from Mount Washington to Carroll Park. Favorite spots include the mural across from the historic Senator Theatre in Belvedere Square and one on The Avenue in Hampden. Thanks to the proliferation of the identical murals, you’re bound to run into “love” wherever you go in the city.
