Fall Adventures in Baltimore

Don’t let the cold air and shorter days stop you from exploring the best parts of Baltimore this fall! Here are three activities that are guaranteed to be a highlight this season.   Baltimore’s homegrown jewelry maker and designer, Betty Cooke, has an exhibit at The Walters Art Museum. Her pieces are wearable art that residents love to wear to celebrations or to an elegant dinner in the Landing. Just a quick drive from RPP, the Walters is free for all and features art from ancient Egypt to nineteenth century Europe. Bring the whole family for an afternoon out to the museum. Gourmands can feast at The Food Market on Hampden’s 36th street. Their fall menu features pumpkin throughout with an array of seafood and meat. Going out with a group of friends with very specific tastes? The Food Market has gluten-free and vegetarian options filled with flavors from around the world. The lobster mac and cheese is a must have. Make a reservation, this spot fills up fast! Need to escape to nature? Druid Hill Park is home to The Maryland Zoo and great walking trails, however, the jewel is The Rawlings Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. On a chilly day the Conservatory is warm and full of blooming plants. Each room transport you to another country from deserts to tropical rain forests. Halloween lovers can take a tour of their carnivorous plant display with a curator. RPP offers trips around and outside Baltimore for residents. We are only half way through the month and residents have tasted wine at a vineyard, listened to live music at the BSO, and visited three different art museums.
