Baltimore Travel Guide

Mount Vernon

Baltimore's arts and cultural center, Mount Vernon is home to the Walters Art Museum and the Peabody Institute conservatory—one of the country's top music schools—as well as some of the city's grandest architecture.

The Walters and nearby Mount Vernon Place, a wonderfully designed park, are two of the neighborhood's must-sees. There are plenty of restaurants on or near Charles

Street, the neighborhood thoroughfare. From the Inner Harbor, you can walk up Charles Street into the heart of Mount Vernon in about 15 minutes. You can also drive or take the free Charm City Circulator (Purple route) or No. 3 bus.
