It’s Just a Short Walk to Baltimore’s Best Snowball

Walther Gardens
With roots dating back to 1933, this stand on a picturesque half-acre parcel of land in Hamilton-Lauraville is arguably the oldest around. But its owners, brother and sister Matthew and Paula Wittek, have kept up with the times with classic flavors, as well as innovative creations like a peppermint patty snowball (spearmint topped with chocolate syrup). Stick around to tour the property, and don’t forget to stop into the garden shop for all of your seasonal plant and flower needs. 3501 Southern Ave., 410-426-0546
