Bromo Arts District

The Bromo Arts District became the third designated arts district in Baltimore in July 2012. Anchoring the District is the Bromo Tower, which now exclusively houses area artists. The District extends north to Martin Luther King Boulevard and Read Street, and south to Pratt, and is home to an impressive range of cultural organizations, visual and performing artists, businesses, and restaurants. Scratch your theatre itch at Everyman Theatre or the Hippodrome, grab an al fresco dinner at FORNO, and finish your night with cocktails at Ale Wife. You’re in an arts district. It’s time to act like it.

Mount Vernon

A cultural and historical hub, Mount Vernon makes Stretching north from Centre Street, Mount Vernon boasts some of the most eclectic architecture in the city. The white-washed walls of The Walters give way to the gothic church just behind the (ahem, country’s first) Washington Monument, and continues along with brownstones, and more traditional brick row homes. Mount Vernon hosts tons of street festivals, including the holiday Monument Lighting, Book Festival, and Artscape.
