It’s May, and summer is right around the corner — which means for many of us that it’s time to take a vacation. Sometimes, though, real life gets in the way and we simply can’t get away for an extended vacation. So in today’s post, the Hanover Cross Street Blog is taking a look at things to do right here in Baltimore, MD this summer. We’ve put together a list of possible places to visit nearly outside your apartment’s doorstep!

Protean Books & Records (0.5 miles away)

If you like all things vintage and retro, this is the perfect place to wile away an afternoon perusing vinyl albums and retro toys, video games, and books. But don’t take our word for it — check out this Google review by Matthew W.:


Massive collection of all things retro from toys to videogames, books and an enormous collection of records meticulously organized. They have good blues and jazz section and even a pretty good soundtrack collection. The staff we met were very cool people and happy to help play some music for us - I found some long sought after discs here. Looking forward to that listening station!

Looking for a bite to eat after your day? SoBo Cafe, an American food restaurant in Federal Hill, features menu items made from scratch using fresh seasonal ingredients.
