"An east-west tour of Baltimore"
Eastern Avenue is quite a diverse street. Closer to the harborfront, you will be sure to see a tour trolley pass you by. But as you travel east, the pavement gets worse and is in terrible shape, especially when the road opens up from a 2-lane street to the 4-lane highway. There are various shops, clubs, and restaurants that line the street as the neighborhoods go from good to average. I have used the street to escape the $2.00 toll at the McHenry tunnel, but that's not such a good idea. The lights are not synchronized and are too close together. It will take you forever. Eastern Avenue is nice to walk but you might want to have a friend walk with you the further east you go.
