Harbor Hangouts

Spring into summer by keeping cool on the water.

Memorial Day is upon us! This unofficial start of summer marks a season of barbecues, crab fests, and sunny days perfect for sailing or relaxing by the water. You live so close to the Inner Harbor, but how often do you actually go? Here’s a quick list to get you started.

1) WATER TAXI
Did you know about the water taxi? This awesome service can charter you all around the harbor. You can board right at Landing #4 in Federal Hill and sail in style to your favorite Inner Harbor hot-spots, including the National Aquarium, Harbor East, Fort McHenry, and more. Buy a day pass or a monthly pass and explore everything Baltimore has to offer, or commute to work with the free Harbor Connector.

2) PADDLE BOATS
You’ve probably seen these paddle boats out and about, but it’s time for you to give it a whirl. You can rent by the half hour and start pedaling solo, with a friend, or even with one of the whimsical “Chessie” boats. (Or if you’d rather skip the cardio, you can rent electric boats, judgement free.)

3) THE DOWNTOWN SAILING COMPANY
The Downtown Sailing Company believes sailing is for everyone. This mission-driven company offers sailing lessons, team-building experiences, summer camps, and more. If you’ve dreamed of captaining your own ship, or learning the ropes with others, this is the place to go.

4) PARTY BOAT!
Throwing a party or celebrating a special occasion? Do it on the water! Whether it’s a small get-together or a company-sponsored outing, there are plenty of boat rentals to choose from, designated driver included.

Run Federal Hill – Best Routes to Roam

givefit.net

Federal Hill is full of great restaurants, bars, shops, events and scenery. And we want you to explore everything our community has to offer. That’s why we researched the best routes to run, hike, and walk in Fed Hill! Since it’s finally spring and the weather is warming up, this is the perfect time to get out there and enjoy the neighborhood.

RUN
No matter if you’re an experienced runner looking for a new route, or a newbie trying to get started, these paths are perfect for you. We’re currently obsessed with this 5-mile run through the Inner Harbor. If you’re looking for something similar, but with a more scenic view, we suggest this jaunt through Riverside Park.

HIKE
Take a stroll around your favorite streets (Charles and Light, of course!) However, if you’re looking to broaden your horizons, literally, then check out this hike of the surrounding Baltimore area. Walk the line between familiar and new on this 2-mile journey through the Hill!

WALK
Waterfront Promenade and the Park? Yes please! You’ll enjoy this panoramic stroll along the edges of Fed Hill. Clocking in at around 1.7 miles, you’ll get some good cardio without breaking a sweat. We’re also all about those Harbor vibes in this pleasant walk around town! A little longer than the Promenade route, this trip takes you through some new neighborhoods and allows you to explore more of the waterfront.

Federal Hill Runners Club
Need some motivation? Join the club – the Federal Hill Runners Club that is. The group meets every Monday at 6:30pm at Federal Hill Fitness on 39 E. Cross Street. It’s free to join – all you have to do is show up!
