24 HOURS IN HARBOR EAST BALTIMORE

I am not going to lie but cobblestone roads, waterfront, uncanny neighborhoods and boarded doors was what I had in mind when conjuring an image of Baltimore. But my preconceptions dispelled the second I walked down the streets of Baltimore. The beautiful sight of marina lined with boats and yachts, the fancy restaurants along the waterfront, the quintessential shops and boutiques, the welcome smiles from pedestrians, all of this flipped my first impression. 

In case you did not know, Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland, despite it isn't the capital. Home to The Ravens, Baltimore's National football league, and Michael Phelps, the most decorated olympian of all time, Baltimore boasts of harboring the behemoth sports retailer Under Armor as well. I hadn't been to Baltimore in a few years and was totally taken aback by the transformation the city has been through. 

I spent 24 hours in Harbor East, one of the newer upcoming neighborhoods in East Baltimore. The boardwalk, the Marina, casual and formal eateries, fancy hotels, the small shops and boutiques, kids riding on their scooters, the hustle-bustle of the office-goers, this area was so lively. It is a perfect live, work, and play environment for young professionals and their families. With the influx of tech companies, Harbor East is becoming one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Baltimore. 

I wish I had extra time on hand to explore this neighborhood, but below are some of the must-visit spots, streets and stores in the Harbor East area
