Fells Point is a historic neighborhood in Baltimore, on the waterfront and celebrating its 250th birthday this year. In recent times it’s also become one of Baltimore’s livelier communities, home to a large collection of bars and restaurants.
But it’s more than just a night-time place – there are hundreds of historic homes in Fells Point. It’s the kind of place that makes for interesting walks – and interesting filming: it was frequently used for locations on the old “Homicide: Life On The Street” TV series and has made cameo appearances in movies like “Sleepless in Seattle” and “Diner”.
Fells Point is located a few blocks east of the popular “Inner Harbor” area and the distance is very walkable. There’s also a connector bus (free!) that circulates between the Inner Harbor, Fells Point and other nearby neighborhoods. But the most scenic method of traveling is via the water taxis that make stops in Fells Point, Inner Harbor, HarborView and Fort McHenry. For more excellent dining options, the Little Italy neighborhood is just north of Fells Point.
