One of Baltimore's most beloved neighborhoods, Fells Point is located on the harbor and boasts a rich variety of restaurants, shops, galleries, and the greatest concentration of bars and pubs in the city.
The neighborhood pulls off with aplomb a rare dichotomy: it's simultaneously historic and modern, charming and edgy, sophisticated and quirky, traditional and diverse. The epicenter of this unique blend is the area closest to the water — most notably Thames Street and S. Broadway.
Fells Point has historically been home to sizeable Polish and Irish populations. In the past decade, the area has welcomed a growing Hispanic population. The influence of the three cultures can be seen throughout the neighborhood. Eastern Avenue enjoys a thriving Central American presence and is the place to go for authentic Central and South American cuisine, groceries, and clothing. Overall, the neighborhood is extremely inclusive, attracting young professionals, blue-collar workers and college students. It has some of the most historic edifices in Baltimore, as well as an annual Fells Point Fun Festival and nationally celebrated haunted tours.
