Baltimore boasts over 225 neighborhoods – each offering a unique living experience. Some of the more popular neighborhoods include:

Butcher’s Hill
One of the closest neighborhoods to Johns Hopkins Hospital is cozy Butcher’s Hill, which abuts the Johns Hopkins Hospital medical campus. Free Hopkins shuttle-bus services and a convenient subway line make commuting to more distant neighborhoods easy.

Fells Point, Canton, Charles Village
Another popular nearby area is Fells Point, a historic maritime center with cobblestone streets that’s now the heart of Baltimore’s nightclub scene. Neighboring Canton, also on the waterfront, is a magnet for young professionals drawn to its quaint coffee shops, trendy restaurants and converted rowhomes. And for those who thrive on a typical graduate-student environment, there’s Charles Village next to the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus.

Federal Hill, Mt. Vernon
Just south of downtown lies Federal Hill, which features its share of nightclubs and restaurants, along with easy access to the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards, home of the MLB Orioles and NFL Ravens. North of downtown are the cultural centers of Mount Vernon and Bolton Hill, where stately old mansions have been transformed into distinctive apartments.

Mount Vernon, an elegant and historic neighborhood of restaurants, shops, and galleries, is in the cultural heart of Baltimore. Once the home of notable figures like Emily Post and George Peabody, Mount Vernon offers a variety of historic townhouses, walkup apartments, and modern apartment complexes and high-rises. Nearby are the Peabody Conservatory, Center Stage Theater, and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

Guilford, Roland Park, Mt. Washington
Farther north in the city lie the tree-lined streets of Guilford, Roland Park and Mt. Washington; and Hampden, made famous by movie director John Waters.

All of these neighborhoods are just 10 to 20 minutes away from The Johns Hopkins Hospital. To explore more of Baltimore’s unique neighborhoods, please visit About Baltimore’s neighborhood profiles.
