A stone's throw from the Inner Harbor, this historic district is the perfect place for an afternoon ramble. The area is composed of numerous Federal-style homes and has undergone major revitalization in the past few decades. The infamous Cross Street Market is a popular stop for all kinds of good Baltimore eats.
See & Do
One thing about the American Visionary Art Museum in Federal Hill: you can't miss it. And you can see some of what this museum is all about before you even buy a ticket for admission. Odd and unique sculptures grace its outside, tempting and inviting you to see what else this eclectic structure has in store.
Porters of Federal Hill is that neighborhood bar that attracts all types of crowds, from college and up. Comfort food, good views, sports, a bar...what else do you need? The menu ranges from the basics like salads and burgers to the more creative and exotic like Irish lasagna to sweet potato tots and bison burgers.
The 8 X 10 is yet another Federal Hill edifice that isn't hard to spot. It's characteristic purple facade graces the corner of Cross Street and invites many a hipster looking for live music. The regulars all have something in common - they don't mind a night of loud music, purple buildings and tight squeezes.
The Cross Street Market is a Federal Hill favorite. There's an amazing variety of goods to eat and drink here, what's not to love? From cheese stands to sushi bars to wing joints to other meaty treats, this place is a carnivore's heaven. This market has something for everyone; whether you're a know-it-all local or an inquisitive visitor, you won't be disappointed with what you find.
