Baltimore South Neighborhoods

Downtown South
Containing Federal Hill, the Stadiums, Locust Point, and more, Downtown South bustles with history, style, and diversity. The neighborhoods in this region are walkable and bikeable, and provide the perfect balance of housing and retail. You’ll find rowhomes, waterfront condos, and lots of apartments. There are also plenty of parks where neighborhood families gather in the evenings and young professionals play in sports and social leagues. When the Ravens and Orioles play, it can get a little crazy but, in this town, there’s no better place to be.

Federal Hill/SoBo

Located just south of the Inner Harbor, Federal Hill/SoBo is oozing with Baltimore charm. Row homes sit comfortably next to cool new residential conversion projects, post-college millenials and young families fill the many parks, shops, and restaurants, and the American Visionary Art Museum’s mirror-clad walls are a glistening beacon of cool. Its accessibility to I-95 and waterfront property make it a dream neighborhood.

Locust Point

Sitting on a peninsula anchored by Fort McHenry, Locust Point is a mix of low key and excitement (and home to the famed Under Armour campus!) Grab groceries, frozen yogurt, or a drink at the massive-but-tucked-away McHenry row, or sit on the roof deck of LP Steamers for crabs. Silo Point stands tall and houses some unbelievable condos, as well as outdoor, waterfront dining options.

Pigtown/Washington Village

Affordable housing, proximity to I-95 and the stadiums, and a strong community are a few of the defining factors of life in Pigtown/Washington Village. And if you’re wondering about the “/” in the name, an unsuccessful attempt was made to change Pigtown’s name to Washington Village in the 1990’s. In true Baltimore fashion, the true current name is unknown, so Baltimorean’s get to choose.

Ridgely's Delight/Stadiums

Accessible to both the University of Maryland campus and Camden Yards/Ravens Stadium, Ridgely’s Delight brings a fascinating mix of urban folk. New restaurants and coffee shops keep popping up, and when baseball starts in the Spring, you can feel the energy pulsing from The Yard. Ridgely’s is the perfect spot for laid-back city dwellers.
