“Bustling busy area, day and night!”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

Lots of night spots, restaurants, and shops on the harbor. Great for people watching. If you like pubs or just sitting around on the square watching the crowds, you'll like this place. Eat at Jimmy's on the square for a great breakfast. It is noisy at night though, but it is a club scene. Exciting, historical area of Baltimore. Walk around and take in the colonial houses off the main drag.

“Still a bit rowdy but the variety and night life are attractive”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

Fells Point has always had a rough edge, after all it's origins date from a seafarers den of activity and wooden shipbuilding days. Even though that flavor still persists on a small scale, the level and variety of bars, food, music and shopping have grown tremendously and this variety draws us in as a stopover when we are in town. The night life offers an open minded adventurous type many options that do not disappoint. Cabs are plentiful.

“Stop through History”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

For a woman of a diverse family background, Fells Point offers historical insight to many of the culture which make up my family's history. From the Irish settlers which came over to seek improved lifestyles for my elders, the Caribbean elders who made their way by way of shipping careers to gain prosperity, and the Africans brought across the Atlantic through conditions which one could never fathom; walking the cobblestone streets of Fells Point makes one wonder how these diverse groups of people came to such a small corner of the globe.
And the restaurants and shopping are great additions, as well.

“Wait awhile to visit”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

The aria has a lot of construction going on in the area and it is hard to get around. We have visited before and parking is difficult but it is a very interesting to shop and find a nice place to eat.

“Sailors' Stopover”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

This an ideal place to lodge with a romantic companion for the night and stroll around the moonlit cobblestone streets. There are many pubs, restaurants, and shops within this historic waterfront community to explore.

During our most recent visit, we stayed at the Inn at the Black Olive, dined at The Olive Room for dinner, Jimmy's Restaurant for breakfast, and picked up a snack at Kilwins. We also went shopping for our son at aMuse Toys, and caught a water taxi from the Inner Harbor.

A couple other cool places we've noted for next time are The Sound Garden music store and The Horse You Came in On Saloon. The latter claims to be America's oldest saloon, established in 1775, and the final drinking place of writer Edgar Allan Poe.

Free 2-Hour parking is being offered on weekends in December before Christmas. The 10th Annual Olde Tyme Christmas Festival takes place 12/6/2013 - 12/8/2013.
