The Central District attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists each year. Among the many attractions in the Central District are the Inner Harbor, Mount Vernon, Lexington Market, Maryland Science Center, National Aquarium, and dozens of fine restaurants. Some of Baltimore's most well-known landmarks are located in the Central District, including the Hippodrome Theatre, Alex Brown Building, Baltimore Convention Center, Washington Monument, and City Hall.

The Central District is also known for its jazz roots, producing famous artists such as Billie Holiday, Cab Calloway, and local performers Ethel Ennis and Rivers Chambers. In the 1950s, Pennsylvania Avenue, more commonly referred to as “The Avenue,” was the heart of Baltimore’s jazz scene. The Royal Theater, Club Tijuana, and The Comedy Club were just a few of the popular jazz venues for both local and nationally known jazz artists.
