Baltimore is known as a "city of neighborhoods" because much of the rich atmosphere of the city can change by walking a few blocks. Each neighborhood has its own unique character and culture. Perhaps the most well-known neighborhood in Baltimore is the downtown area that is home to the inner harbor and the Camden Yards sports complex. Traditionally, downtown has been a commercial area with limited residential opportunities, but that trend has been reversing with an influx if young professionals moving into the neighborhood.
Baltimore has many parks, museums, performing arts centers, professional sports teams, and other tourist attractions to entertain both residents and visitors alike. Our city plays host to Artscape in the Bolton Hill neighborhood, the "largest free arts festival in America," and the Maryland Film Festival.
