Baltimore’s Downtown Partnership Makes Downtown Safer, More Accessible & More Fun for Visitors & Residents
Downtown Baltimore is a hotbed of activity – it’s packed with restaurants and attractions and every week, new events are announced. For people living, working or visiting downtown Baltimore, that’s exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. With so much to do, how do you decide where to start?
The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore can help. From their Charles Street headquarters, the organization creates and promotes programs for the city – they’re involved with everything from Restaurant Week to the free Charm City Circulator bus – and they help locals and tourists alike navigate all the opportunities downtown Baltimore has to offer.
Have an electric vehicle? Thinking about buying one? There are plenty of reasons to drive electric, from environmental to financial considerations.
One up side of driving an electric vehicle is the ability to charge your car while it’s parked. In Baltimore, Harbor Park Garage has partnered with the ChargePoint network; the garage now has stations that allow up to four electric vehicles (EVs) to charge at one time.
ChargePoint is an organization that designs and builds EV charging stations that customers can use finding an easy mobile app. The app allows customers to track fuel and greenhouse gas savings, find charging spots and coordinate the charge at one of the charging stations.
Science fiction fans will descend on Baltimore’s Inner Harbor this weekend, when (Re)Generation WHO, a convention celebrating all things Dr. Who, kicks off in Charm City for the third year in a row. The convention begins at noon on Friday, March 24 and lasts until Sunday at 5 p.m. and takes place at the Renaissance Hotel, located smack in the middle of downtown.
(Re)Generation WHO is just the most recent in a long string of science fiction events taking place in Maryland’s largest city. Baltimore is a popular and fun spot for all things science fiction – and here’s why:
Have you heard about Light City? Well if you haven’t. it’s a Baltimore-based event in the vein of Austin’s SXSW Conference – a hybrid event including art installations, music and arts performances and speaking sessions and panels focused on topics around innovation.
Light City 2016 was the first event of its kind in the area; it was a smashing success, drawing about 400,000 visitors to downtown Baltimore. This year’s event, which takes place from March 31 to April 8, is expected to be just as popular.
But art and innovation aren’t the only reasons to head to Light City: there will also be a serious focus on food.
Founded in the mid-18th century and named for William Fell, an Englishman who founded a ship-building company within its borders, Fells Point has a long and storied history as one of Baltimore’s wildest, most charming neighborhoods.
Today, the cobblestone streets of Fells lead to over 100 pubs, tons of locally-owned shops and some excellent restaurants – plus a ton of historic Baltimore charm. Let us give you all a local low-down on what do in this time machine that is Fells Point.
