The inner harbor is a visually exciting place. You can paddle your own "boat" or take a ride on a pirate ship. The science museum is an interactive treat for families. My favorite is the stringless harp. Varied food options abound. Street performers abound & delight! Visit the aquarium or just wander about at no charge!

I was worried about getting off I-95 and finding an easy access parking lot. No need to worry, we found a parking lot right across the street. Be for warned however to be sure to buy your parking ticket and display it on your front dash. I bought my ticket and went back to put the ticket in our vehicle... More

I've lived most of my life in Pennsylvania but when I moved into the area of Baltimore I fell in love with the city and adopted it as my own. I'm enchanted by the Inner Harbor no matter how many times I've been there over the last 20 years! There is so much to soak in, visually, at the harbor.... More

And it's exactly what you'd expect from a tourist hub, set on the banks of the patapsco river. Housing the National Aquarium, The Power Plant Shopping Complex, the Maryland Science Center, Ripley's Believe It or Not, Historic Federal Hill and a host of food options, you'll find you can easily spend a day here doing any of the above or...

We love the Inner Harbor and have taken Day and Weekend trips here for several years. Kids are now 11and 12, but there are lots of different things that have held their interest as they grow. The Aquarium and Science Museum remain hands down favorites. Catch a free bus to Fort McHenry. Take a break in the bookstore on a... More

The walk around the Inner Harbour is fabulous. Be sure to make it to the Broadway Market area. Awesome little restaurants and stores. And if you go a little further east and north, hit Patterson Park. Great little quite spot. All told you can spend a wonderful day walking from the west end of the harbour to Patterson Park and...

So sad, because this used to be THE main attraction of Baltimore. Unfortunately, it has been overrun by panhandlers, homeless, and roaming gangs of teens. They have had to increase police presence because of it getting so bad. The mayor continues to turn her back on the situation due to not wanting to scare off the tourist business.

There are a lot of great stores here, nice restaurants, national aquarium, water taxis, and a nice walking path around the harbor. Once again, I went to baltimore, had a great time, and lived to tell about it. Don't believe the hype about it being a horrible place. Throw in a ball game and you've got it made!

If you like touristy stuff, this is the place for you! Good restaurants, entertaining museums, beautiful, scenic walks along the harbor. I will usually send my guests over to Fells Point for a more scenic stroll.

A trip to the Inner Harbor is centrally located downtown, allowing easy access to restaurants, shops, and activities. Outdoor entertainment in warmer months while watching the boats breeze in and out is relaxing and enjoyable. Paddle boats, a panoramic view of the city and harbor via World Trade Center (27th floor), the Science Center (Imax too) and Museum of Industry,... More
