Definitely visit the Harbor and the aquarium is fun too if you like that sort of thing. There’s some really delicious restaurants down town that you could try! Trip Advisor it! And have fun!

Fells Point, the Aquarium. . .wander the Johns Hopkins campus, poke your head into the Walter Art Museum, Edgar Allen Poe house and museum. . .and while you’re there, get some crabs (hahaha, good luck avoiding them)!

Mount Vernon has some beautiful parks and architecture, if you’re into that sorta thing! It’s a pretty short walk from where you’re staying. The Walters Art Museum is there as well.

Inner Harbor is cool, definitely touristy though.

Fells Point has great bars and restaurants.

Canton is cute and has some awesome restaurants as well! 

Just be careful and don’t go anywhere alone at night 🙂

Oh and best crab cakes are at Faidleys, next to Lexington Market. They’re AMAZING!

If you go to the Baltimore museum of art, the restaurant inside, which is called Gertrude’s, is really good. The tapas place at the Harbor is pretty good. There’s also a good Italian restaurant called LaScala in little Italy , which is near the Harbor,  with really good food and bocce on the main floor

Rusty Scupper is a good / fun restaurant on the Harbor. You can walk out there on the pier or take one of the ferry boats b

Your hotel will be right near the Little Italy neighborhood. Sabatoino’s garlic bread. I die. You’re also right near Harbor East. Lebanese Taverna is there, as is Roys. Both are delicious. If you head across President’s street for about 2 blocks, you’ll be near Power Plant Live. Lots of bars there. The crowd is a little young, though. You’ll also be near Fogo de Chao, if you feel the need for a meat explosion. There’s an African American history museum right near your hotel. It was built as I was leaving Baltimore, but it’s supposed to be pretty interesting. You’re also near the Flag House. It’s where the woman who sewed the American flag that was flown over Ft. McHenry as Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner lived. If you want to head to the art museums, both the BMA and the Walters have great collections. But take a cab. That’s easily a 1+ mile walk through very high traffic areas, and Baltimore drivers are not the best at looking out for pedestrians. They are not Boston drivers, by any means, but they are careless. And there’s always the aquarium. It’s interesting, but expensive. Check to see if they are still offering their Fridays after 5 deal. It’s a deeply discounted entry fee to go in on Fridays at 5pm or later. Oh, and there is a creamery in the harbor pavillion nearest to the aquarium that has some seriously yummy ice cream.

I’m a little late on this but maybe you will still see this…

 

You could take the free water taxi over to the Visionary Arts Museum (it leaves from right near you and runs until about 7pm on weekdays http://www.charmcitycirculator.com/content/route-maps

 

My Thai is a fantastic thai restaurant close to where you are staying as well.  Some of my other favorites are Darbar (Indian restaurant in Fells Point) Annabel Lee Tavern and Jack’s Bistro (both in Canton) and I will second the previous recommendation of La Scala.

kawood0618:  You’re probably here already. Welcome!

 

Teavolve is close to you and the food is awesome!

If you can get in, try out the Blue Moon Cafe. Also, try Miss Shirley’s on Pratt Street. It’s best to go for Breakfast or Lunch/Brunch. Can’t make reservations though 🙁 Sorry.

Also, it’s not “authentic” but it’s still pretty good. Go to Phillip’s seafood at the Harbor for your good ol’ Baltimore crabcake. Brio has good drinks and happy hour. It’s on Pratt St. Have fun! Enjoy this gorgeous weather!
