Art, Music, Theater, Film, Great Food, Cozy Cafes, and Beautiful Parks: The Core has all that and more!

Central Baltimore is known internationally for the Station North Arts & Entertainment District that cuts across three neighborhoods (Charles North, Greenmount West and Barclay). But Station North contains just a fraction of the vast array of restaurants, music venues, art spaces and theaters in The Core! From the Baltimore Museum of Art (Baltimore's "Number 1 Best thing To Do" according to U.S. News and World Report) in Charles Village, to Ottobar (Baltimore’s premier Indie rock venue) in Remington, to Peabody Heights (the award-winning craft brewery, tasting room, and event space) in Abell, every neighborhood in Central Baltimore has something unique to offer. Add to that, the city's largest collection of bookstore/cafes, acres of beautiful parkland, and numerous architectural landmarks, and you truly have something for everyone to explore. Best of all — these varied experiences are packed into a compact, walkable, space, with wildly different environments just minutes away from each other.

The Core is as easy to get to, as it is to walk around.

Getting to Central Baltimore is easy too. When it comes to transit in Baltimore, The Core is as good as it gets — with Amtrak, Light Rail, and Bolt Bus connections, as well as numerous MTA Bus routes, and the city's favorite free ride, the Charm City Circulator. If you're arriving by car, you can take I-83, and, of course, North Ave., Charles & St. Paul Streets, the city's renowned East/West and North/South thoroughfares, cut right through Central Baltimore.
