Fells Point has fun bars, restaurants, and coffee houses some of which were on cobble stone streets. Plenty of neat old buildings... and a grant blue crab by the water for silly photos. It is easily accessible by the water taxi and is a healthy walk from the Inner Harbor.

I enjoy the water and am always interested in seeing sites around the water. On our trip to the area we walked around the waterfront and saw the ships. Since we are from Boston, it reminded me of home a little bit.

We visited in early August 2015. There were no AAA discounts advertised, but we asked. Surprise! They were offering four ships for the price of one with AAA. So that is what we got. I think we paid $11/adult instead of $18. The Constellation and the Taney were by far the best of the four ships. They were interpreted the... More

My kids LOVED getting to see the inside of ALL four of the ships! It doesn't cost that much and its well worth it. They loved the submarine the best it was great.

Except for the fact that my hubby wandered off our son and I really enjoyed getting deep inside these ships and felt like modern Ancient Mariners!

We toured the Torsk submarine and the Constellation. First the Torsk- I am claustrophobic and was concerned about going on this ship. We left room between us and the party ahead, and asked the people behind not to crowd us, and I had no problem. I wouldn't want to stay in there too long, but it was doable! For the... More

a good opportunity to see up close some of the nautical history that makes up the inner harbor of Baltimore. suggest the tour of the submarine, if you or someone else in your party is claustrophobic, avoid the inside tour, it is tight and gives a fascinating insight to the sailors life aboard this metallic vessel. the clipper ship is...

This is a nice place to walk around. Go there for lunch, then take a walk. It's a good place for kids, too.
