Full description
Come explore Mt. Vernon, the neighborhood of the aristocrats in Baltimore, and embark on a multicultural food tasting experience: visit 4 restaurants and see the views of the best neighborhood in town. Named for the home of George Washington, this land was donated by a Revolutionary War veteran of a wealthy family to erect a monument to Washington. The area soon became the most desirable place to live, if you were a family or person of means and taste. Fast forward to today—the stunning architecture and grand designs of the neighborhood are paired with multi-ethnic restaurants and many museums and boutiques. The funky cultural mix of communities in the area lend themselves to the dynamic food and flavors that are found all over. Start your tour at the Maryland Historical Society, where you'll dive into the history and formation of the neighborhood after the War of 1812. Learn about and discuss the importance of the aristocratic class, and almost a century of wealth and opportunity that flowed into the city. It was a time of prosperity and growth by leaps and bounds. As you walk through the neighborhood, you'll eat at 4 stops, focusing on the cultural history of the area. Chinese dumplings, Turkish Mediterranean kebabs, Afghan specialties, and fusion cuisine are on the menu for a dynamic and thrilling foodie experience. End up at one of the best views of the city, and to toast to the future of Baltimore. See a side of the city that is far superior to what is shown in the news.
