“Baltimore is a fascinating city with a lot to discover. The Inner Harbor may be what most people know about Baltimore, but the city's true gems are far less publicized.”
Mount Vernon is Christopher’s favorite neighborhood for its fantastic mix of art, restaurants, and entertainment. He visits The Walters Art Museum to marvel at its impressive permanent and visiting collections, spanning a wide range of time periods and locations. And in July all of Baltimore celebrates the arts during Artscape, the nation’s largest free arts festival. Almack’s in Mount Vernon serves the best coffee in Baltimore, according to Christopher. The lattes are fantastic and the atmosphere is conducive to studying.
After attending school in Baltimore for three years, Christopher continues to discover niche restaurants and new entertainment venues. And as a student in a healthcare profession, Christopher also appreciates the professional opportunities the city offers for direct patient care and access to major urban hospitals and practice sites.
