Hampden is like the Austin of Maryland. Weird and delightful. Great food, clothing shops, and antique stores. Try the Charmery for an awesome ice cream cone. Or go to La Garage for some French inspired food (the French Cubano is amazing and the Family Mule to drink). Browse the shops for a new dress or enjoy a glass of wine... More

This is a charming neighborhood in Baltimore; old row houses turned into shops, cherry trees lining the street and ice cream on the corner...The Charmery! The shoe store was a fun stop (forget the name) and they have candy as well!

Walked around today. Loved some of the stores. Was disappointed about some of the closed stores that have been closed for a while. Found some gems and found some cheesy stuff as well. Best store visited: Mud and Metal. Common Ground is an anchor store for the area - has not changed in over 11 years!

Hampden is a fun, funky, eclectic neighborhood full of unique boutiques & awesome restaurants. This area is a great place to experience the essence of Charm City. There are frequently free events (like Honfest in the Spring/Summer & an entire street of holiday lights in the Winter), but there's loads to do in Hampden any day of the week!

Here is a lovely, funky Baltimore neighborhood with all manners of shops and fun restaurants. It is extremely safe all hours and parking is reasonable. Go here for an afternoon of special shopping for stuff you won't find elsewhere and then a great dinner.

One entire street block where every home on both sides of the street, except one, is lit up with decorations that are lit, or move, or make noise. Look for the house that decorates with automobile hubcaps. Take the kids, park the car and walk up and down the street, one block and take in the Christmas spirit exhibited by... More
