Few neighborhoods capture the spirit of "Charm City" like Fells Point. Once a bustling port, the waterfront area is now home to a plethora of bars, restaurants, art galleries, indie stores and novelty shops. Bertha's is known for its seafood, particularly the mussels. At Obryckis, you sit down to a table filled with crabs and a mallet to make a delicious mess. Plan your visit to hit annual local highlights: Halloween, Christmas and Fells Point Festival (in early October).

Getting Around Baltimore
The best way to get around Baltimore is by car. The city's grid layout lends itself to easy navigation. Avoid downtown on days when the Ravens or Orioles are playing. Traffic can be brutal and parking impossible. On days when the Ravens or Orioles are playing at home, the light rail system is a better option.
