Baltimore is a city of neighborhoods, and there is perhaps none quite so special as Historic Federal Hill. A unique blend of the old and the new gives this neighborhood a distinctive charm.
Historic Federal Hill is conveniently located just a short, pleasant walk south from the Inner Harbor. Walk a few blocks west and cheer with the fans at Baltimore's two exciting stadiums. Stand on top of Federal Hill Park at the eastern edge of the neighborhood and take in a breathtaking view of the city and the harbor. Or hop in your car for the five minute drive to Fort McHenry and enjoy an experience steeped in America's history.
A delightful variety of shops, art galleries, pubs, and many of the finest restaurants in Baltimore line the streets of the neighborhood in picturesque buildings of early 19th century architecture. And at its very heart is the Cross Street Market -- an old-fashioned fresh grocery food market first opened in 1846, where tradition lives on as generation after generation work together selling everything from fresh produce to live blue crabs, from gourmet foods to fresh-cut flowers.
Explore the shops and art galleries, quench your thirst with a homemade brew, unwind in an intimate fine dining experience, or stroll through the market and go home with an armful of delicious foods and fresh flowers... Come to Historic Federal Hill and be enchanted!
