"A great walking street for tourists"
W. Pratt Street is a great street to walk for a night on the town and such. Watch out when walking though because the street is kind of wide and there is a lot going on as it's right off the Baltimore Harbor...one of Baltimore's main tourist attractions and hot spots. Yet, it cuts right through Downtown amongst the high-rises and office towers; so if you're taking a walk during lunch time a businessperson taking a break may be in a rush and not want to obey pedestrian laws. In the summer, breezes from the harbor always seem to keep the air cooler than other parts of the city. From Pratt Street you have access to the Hard Rock Cafe on the Harbor, the Cheesecake Factory, and other great eating places on the Harbor. Shopping is also prevalent as some higher-end stores line this street too. This is also one of the better paved streets Downtown...a rarity in Baltimore.
