Fells Point is a fascinating Baltimore neighborhood on the north shore of famous Baltimore Harbor. In a bustling city of 620,000, it has a sense of history all its own. Settled in 1670 and officially founded in 1732, it spent centuries as the center of Baltimore's vibrant immigrant communities welcoming people from all over the globe.
Since the 1970s, people from elsewhere in the U.S. have increasingly discovered its joys. When you visit Fells Point, you find a compact neighborhood where owning a car is strictly optional. With only a touch over 5,000 residents, it is considered one of the most walkable places in Maryland.
With all its amenities and convenience to downtown, Fells Point is a community with charm. One lovely institution you simply must see when seeing Fells Point is the Vagabond Theatre.
