This is a preserved area around midway between Penn Station and Inner Harbor. The city government has tried hard to promote the neighborhood with some detailed illustrations around historic buildings. However, Mount Vernon is not too special when compared with other major American cities. No reason to visit in particular.

Beautiful historical neighborhood in Baltimore. The roads are pathed in bricks. Park in honor of Peabody, plus the library and university. Also, Washington Monument.

A walk to Mount Vernon is deceitfully, not Annastraat walk in the park but a mean slope. Worthwhile yes, but mind your step!

Did a history/food tour of this area. Lots of history and interesting buildings. Probably any type of cuisine you could imagine here. This is a safe clean part of the city.

This is my favorite neighborhood to visit in Baltimore. The architecture is beautiful, the Walter’s Art museum is a total gem, and there’s a wide selection of really good, cute cafes and restaurants all over the place.
If you’re coming to Baltimore from out of town, it’s a really great historic neighborhood worth the Uber drive from the waterfront.
