Discover the Location

Many of the city's top cultural and tourist attractions are only blocks away from Historic Federal Hill.  Visitors can leave their cars parked and walk from the American Visionary Arts Museum, the Baltimore Convention Center, the Baltimore Museum of Industry, Harborplace and the Gallery, the Maryland Science Center, the National Aquarium, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the Pier Six Concert Pavilion, Port Discovery Children's Museum, the Power Plant and Ravens Stadium.

Historic Federal Hill could not be more conveniently located.  Sitting just south of Baltimore's world famous Inner Harbor, the neighborhood is easily accessible from every direction.  Out-of-town visitors can walk to Federal Hill from their hotel rooms.  The four-star Hyatt Regency and Harbor Court Hotels, as well as the Sheraton Inner Harbor, are located a few blocks north of the neighborhood.  While the more intimate surroundings of Federal Hill's charming 'bed and breakfast' inns draw a more leisurely crowd. Baltimore's premier five-star hotel, Ritz Carlton, sits on the waterfront at the foot of Federal Hill Park, located just around the corner.

Visitors driving into Federal Hill have easy access from every direction!  The neighborhood is readily accessible from Interstate 95, the Baltimore Washington Parkway, and Interstate 83.  Parking spaces are plentiful, with over 1,000 on-and off street parking spaces located within five blocks of the Cross Street Market, including 250 parking spaces in the West Street Parking Garage.  In addition, many of Federal Hill's restaurants and shops offer their own parking accommodations.  Unlike many downtown neighborhoods, visiting Historic Federal Hill by car is easy and convenient.

Federal Hill is well served by public transportation.  Visitors travel directly by MTA bus, Light Rail and the MARC commuter rail, with easy connections from BWI Airport and Amtrak's Penn Station.  Or they may walk the few short blocks from the Metro Subway.  The Inner Harbor's water taxi provides easy access to and from other great waterfront neighborhoods and attractions, such as Fell's Point, Canton, and Fort McHenry on the tip of Locust Point. The Charm City Circulator, Baltimore's newest and only FREE public bus, has several routes which run from Downtown/Inner Harbor to tourist attractions in the city's surrounding neighborhoods of Federal Hill/Locust Point, Harbor East, and Mount Vernon.
