Insider's Guide

The nucleus of the city, Downtown Baltimore is undergoing a transformation shifting from an office district into a vital series of neighborhoods with something to do 24/7. From City Hall to Lexington Market. Camden Yards to the Inner Harbor, many of the attractions that make the city a great place to live, work and visit are in what just happens to also be the region's leading commercial and residential district.

An ever increasing number of families and professionals have chosen to make Downtown their home, preferring to live in an apartment, condo or single-family home within steps of some of the city's prime entertainment and food spots to an arduous commute from the suburbs. The neighborhood's high quality of life, the ability to walk to the office, the largest amount of transit access and the proximity to major highways offers easy access to Downtowners.

The Maryland Science Center, National Aquarium in Baltimore, HarborPlace & The Gallery, Port Discovery and Rams Head Live, one of the top drawing venues in the country, night clubs, and a host of other venues provide entertainment, dining experiences and shopping for pint-sized residents and adults alike.


Sam Hulbert A 23-year resident of Downtown, Sam Hulbert says he wouldn't trade living there for a life in the suburbs -- and not just because he never has to mow the lawn.
