A Tour of Baltimore Peninsula

One of the city’s newest developments, Baltimore Peninsula is transforming into a waterfront hub for dining, shopping and exploring.

Just south of Federal Hill, Baltimore Peninsula (formerly known as Port Covington) is one of the biggest current development projects in the country in the midst of a multi-year transformation that will turn this former industrial port into a hub for water-taxis, distillery visits, movie and concert viewing and shopping trips. Currently there is a whiskey distillery, restaurant and maker space and soon it will be filled with retail, hotel accommodations, green space and waterfront parks.

Things To Do in Baltimore Peninsula

Baltimore Peninsula is home to Sagamore Spirit Distillery, which is spearheading the revitalization of the Maryland tradition of rye whiskey. Take a tour of the facility to see how the whiskey is made, or settle in for a few glasses of the libation at the adjacent Rye Street Tavern. The new American restaurant’s menu, developed by celebrated New York chef Andrew Carmellini, features local seafood dishes, fried chicken and ribs. The restaurant’s large grassy lawn and waterfront location make it a perfect hang out spot.

Enjoy a retreat from the day-to-day grind at South Point, a re-imagined open space (families and pets welcome) and entertainment pavilion with live performances. Relax in the Adirondack chairs or bring a picnic and watch the waterfront sunset. On the other side of the Hanover Street bridge you’ll find Nick’s Fish House, a local seafood restaurant perfect for enjoying a crab feast on their waterfront deck.
