Quite a good stroll where you can find some interesting things. You can spend here 1 hour or more depending on your time. There are also a lot of restaurants and shops in the proximity.

Inner Harbor Baltimore is a bit commercial with a large variety of chain restaurants and big name retailers. What I found missing was smaller, specialty shops. The area itself is quite nice with water views all around. The neighborhood by Federal Hill Park is very quaint and you get a great view of the harbor. We found that 2 days... More

The Charm City Circulator is great, there are 4 free bus routes that cover a pretty large part of the Downtown/Inner Harbor area. I never waited more than 10 minutes for a circulator bus. The city buses are another matter. There were a couple of tourist attractions I wanted to visit that were outside of the circulator service area, but... More

In the summer, there's always a lot of tourists but it's not a great tourist attraction. Way too many retail stores and overpriced restaurants. However, on a beautiful day, the harbor can be very beautiful. Parking in the area can be very expensive. However, use the Charm City Circulator! There are three different lines and it runs from southwest Baltimore,... More

The Baltimore Harbor is a beautiful destination for adults and children. You can walk the harbor on a sunny day and experience a fun ride for kids on the dragons peddling in the harbor or take a water taxi to great destinations like Fells Point or,Little Italy. There are delicious seafood restaurants along the Harbor as well as chains like... More

We live in rural southwestern PA. This is a day trip we make often. It seems it's ever changing. A place with great diversity allowing many activities or just sit and unwind. It really is an easy in-out as far as driving. With the water taxi, you can travel all over the place and leave your car parked. Shopping, great... More

Inner Harbor is wonderful from couples to families. It's easy to get too either by road or by water. If coming by water, there is a floating dock marina at Inner Harbor. You have to visit the multi-story aquarium and the Maryland Science Center - great for all ages. There are shops, eateries and fine dining restaurants. Of course you'll... More

I visited the harbor with my boyfriend with another couple. We enjoyed the shops and view. There were alot of boat ride options. From speed boats to row yourself dragon boats. We never got to try these boat rides as it was out of season.

So, if you're on business or at a meeting at the convention center you can walk down to the Inner Harbor. After about 10 minutes you realize that there is nothing unique or memorable about it. Typical tourist restaurants, kitschy souvenirs, that's about all. For those with short attention spans. Drown your sorrows with a Natty Bo.
