Mid-Town Belvedere is a neighborhood located north of the Mount Vernon neighborhood. Although Mid-Town Belvedere  is officially separate from Mount Vernon neighborhood, they are both considered a part of the Mount Vernon Cultural District.

The neighborhood is named after George Washington's estate, Mount Vernon, and is recognized by the iconic Washington Monument, a massive pillar erected in 1815 to honor the first President of the United States.

The neighborhood also includes the Maryland Historical Society, the Walters Art Museum, and the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University.

On weekends, locals often visit the weekly farmer's market under I-83, and there are several annual festivals held in the neighborhood, such as the FlowerMart and formerly help the Baltimore Book Festival before it moved to the Baltimore Convention Center

The Inner Harbor is about half a mile south of Centre Street. Many of Baltimore's other neighborhoods are within walking distance such as Little Italy, and Station North. Locals typically take advantage of this proximity to explore other parts of the city on foot, such as visiting the shops and restaurants in Fells Point or taking a stroll around the historic Johns Hopkins University campus in Charles Village.

The Charm City Circulator provides free, frequent shuttle bus service throughout the neighborhood and connects to other parts of the city. The area is also a short walk away from Baltimore's Pennsylvania Station in Station North, a major transportation hub for Amtrak trains and regional bus services. Numerous bus routes serve the area as well.

Electric scooters are available for rent throughout the neighborhood (please wear a hemet and go slow).
