Inner Harbour: This is where you'll find most of the city's attractions like the American Visionary Art Museum and the Baltimore Civil War Museum. The views of the harbour are really great from here.
Fells Point: If you're looking for great nightlife, head this Fells Point, right on the harbour. It has the densest collection of restaurants, bars and pubs in the city. Jonestown is home to the city's Jewish community while Little Italy never fails to serve up something amazing.
Edgar Allan Poe's House: The famous author's early childhood home is located in West Baltimore. He was the master of mystery and macabre. You'll find his house on Amity Street, number 203. There is a small fee to enter, but it's worth it.
