Baltimore – Hamden
BALTIMORE2.0 – Hampden Travel & Leisure Magazine called Baltimore “the quirkiest city” based on its 200+ neighborhoods – all with a unique history and feel. Baltimore’s Hampden is by far the coolest & “quirkiest”. 36th Street – The Avenue is made up of eclectic shops, restaurants and bars in converted row houses. Every June is the HONfest (June 13th & 14th), a celebration of the historic working-class women of Baltimore. At its helm is a subculture called the “HONS”-easily identifiable for the over-the-top dresses, cat glasses, feather boas, beehive hairdos and wild cosmetic jewelry. The working class women exhibited their happiness and shortened up the word “honey” by calling everyone warmly “hon” – it stuck to say the least. LOVE YA, BALTIMORE!
