“Bmore Beautiful” Itinerary

My dad’s cousins came into town and they made T-shirts to promote my blog! We had a blast exploring my favorite parts of the city to showcase its BEAUTY. I made an itinerary for our day; you can see it at the bottom of this page if you would like to follow in our footsteps! There’s also a downloadable PDF file of the itinerary beneath it. After looking through it, please take the poll at the bottom of this post to let me know what you think about the itinerary!

Billy and Patty have a camper, and camped at Hollofield Campground in Ellicott City, approximately 20-30 minutes from inner city Baltimore. Don’t these pictures make you want one?! After checking out their portable apartment, I showed them around my beautiful city 🙂

First stop: Federal Hill Park


The view from here is spectacular. You can see the entire Baltimore skyline from above the inner harbor. Then take a brief stroll on Montgomery Street to see the gorgeous historic homes in Federal Hill.

DiPasquales at Harborview

We had lunch at this Italian marketplace on the water near Federal Hill. It has delicious pizza and sandwiches with a view of the harbor.

Under Amour Promenade and the Water Taxi

The promenade offers views of Fells Point, Harbor East, and Canton from the water. From there we took the Water Taxi around to Harbor East.

Harbor East

We explored the Under Armour Brand House for shopping, and the Sandlot: a beach-themed bar on the water.

Fells Point

We walked from The Sandlot to Fells Point and explored the cute shops here. We had a drink at Choptank before heading back on the Water Taxi.

Canton Square

In 1785, Captain John O’Donnell settled in Baltimore along the water in the inner harbor, currently known as Canton. German, Irish and Polish communities lived in the town, and large industrial companies made their way here in the 19th century. Now, Canton is known for the numerous bars scattered in the city town, some of which are congregated at Canton Square on O’Donnell Street. This weekend we checked out El Bufalo and Southern Provisions, as well as a few small shops.

El Bufalo has delicious food and drinks of Mexican, Spanish and South Western influence. They have some of the best tacos and margaritas in the city.

Southern Provisions has southern fare with a hint of Baltimore. They even delight with southern hospitality! We enjoyed their draught beers and apps and recommend the crispy deviled eggs with crab meat.

There is so much more Canton has to offer, we will be visiting them all so check back for more posts on this cute part of town 🙂

Canton and Guinness Brewery

Here is a compilation of all of our runs the past few days… To start off the weekend, we ran 11 miles bright and early in the morning to miss the crowds. Pictured below are views from Fells Point, Canton waterfront, Federal Hill, Inner Harbor, Otterbein, and Riverside Park. Thanks to Marie for the celeb shot in Fells Point/Harbor East area.

For the longest time, I kept hearing about the Pagoda in Patterson Park in Canton, but I could never find it. It’s on the west side of the park, not sure how I missed it! Sure is beautiful.
