Unique area. The piers are connected with bridges. There are Naval Ship to tour, speedboat rides, dinner cruises, the National Aquarium (fee), a lighthouse, and many restaurants, stores, bars other attractions. It is a fun place for all ages to walk around for an afternoon or evening.

Our family went to the Inner Harbor for the day, only because we had a flight out of BWI early the next morning. In and of itself, this is a tourist trap of predictable souvenir stores and chain restaurants dressed up with a nice harbor. To make this a destination just to "shop and eat" - yuck. Just to get...

Took my grandson to inner harbor for the day - loved it... so much to see and do... he enjoyed seeing the ships and looking at the fountains. Be prepared for a lot of walking though and I, personally, prefer riding the subway in... much less stress and hassle. (and cheaper than parking)

You HAVE TO spend a day in Inner Harbor if you visit Baltimore....especially if weather is nice. The variety of shops, bars, and restaurants are top of the line, as well as access to area museums, sites and other activities!. Pan handling can be a but much would be one negative

After my meetings were over, went shopping in the Inner Harbor, nice selection of stores and restaurant. Found a place to stop for ice cream and also bought several gifts for family and friends.

You can just enjoy the Inner Harbor walking around and taking in all the sights. You can take a boat ride - I recommend the all day water taxi pass for only $12 - which takes you to all points on the harbor. There are many restaurants from fast food to fine dining. The National Aquarium, Baltimore science museum and... More

Police presence was seriously missing... The park between the Trade Center and the Aquarium has a park. The benches are magnets for the homeless. BALTIMORE needs to help these people! For two days there was a woman just outside of the Hard Rock. She was planted with her belongings asking for money. While at the Hard Rock pier listening to... More

The Baltimore harbor area and shops is very well cared for and planned. There is much diversity of neighborhoods around the harbor, things to do of historical nature and new, places to eat, shopping, music venues and events. The water taxi not only makes every neighborhood easy to get to without a car, but it in itself is an enjoyable... More

Saw National Aquarium and WWII Submarine TORSK, then used Water Taxi to visit Fort McHenry and Fells Point. Dalesio's in little Italy and Thames St Oyster House @ Fells Point both had great food/service. Get what you pay for, worth the $$ both places!

We have been to The Inner Harbor many times, it is always busy however this was the worst. Between the fact that it was parents weekend at The Naval Academy, there were two baseball games and, worst of all, a convention of oddly dressed teen/young adult folks (30,000!) it was worse than usual. If you are planning a trip to... More
