When you’ve seen all the main attractions, take a stroll off the beaten path and discover things you will find only in Baltimore. Walk through the arts district in Mount Vernon. Shop Baltimore’s tradition of public markets at the Cross Street Market in Federal Hill. Savor authentic cuisine in Little Italy or Greektown. Check out native Baltimorean Frank Zappa’s bust outside of the Enoch Pratt Free Library.
Cool, only-in-Baltimore festivals like the African-American Festival, Hampden’s HonFest (where everyone calls you “hon”), the Greek Folk Festival, Little Italy’s Open-Air Film Festival and countless other events give you a good reason to plan a visit to Charm City.
