I have lived in Baltimore for many years and always enjoy taking friends and house guests to the Inner Harbor. Even on a cold January morning we enjoyed our stroll. There are many places to park, a variety of restaurants, seasonal entertainment and lots of good people watching. I always feel safe there. B'more's Inner Harbor is a must see... More

Not as many shops or restaurants as i expected. Food choices were limited. Blustery January weather made it not fun. In summer, i hear live music and fountains are plentiful. That sounds promising

We had just a few hours to spend at the Inner Harbor and it was fun. The weather was beautiful. We wanted to visit the civil war ship but ran out of time after having lunch so we just walked around and took in the sights.

Save your $ and avoid the tourist shops. Put the wallet away and just walk and enjoy the people watching, wave gazing and fresh air. Eat off this beaten path. Good for morning walks or at dusk. Move on to Little Italy for dinner - or spend your $ on a midday visit to the National Aquarium, especially in the... More

The harbor was seriously one of the most BEAUTIFUL and clean, awesome places I've ever seen! I was so impressed with how lovely everything was and how clean and pretty everything was, decorated or the holidays, it was beautiful. Our original hotel was TERRIBLE, so the beauty of the harbor made up for that nightmare. If you get the chance... More

Vibrant in the day or night, the Inner Harbor is a very scenic place to walk around, with lots of interesting buildings, old or recent, and a spectacular aquarium, as well as the many other museums. The historic ships are also a very nice addition to the photo album. Lots of nice restaurants also.

I try to go there at least once each year. So much to see and do. Port Discovery, the aquarium and the science museum,paddle boats, markets, great seafood. Top family location. Find a hotel by the harbor.

Went with the family for a Ravens game and learned and saw so much more. The Inner Harbor has lots to see and offers great restaurant options; bars; skating (if you are so inclined). Took a harbor taxi for a lark, and it was good to see from the city from the water. The Ravens game was an experience and... More

There are many tourists there in the summer but at lunch time you will see many of the office workers come with their bagged lunches and sit on the steps and enjoy their lunch. I lived in Balto and the inner harbor is an attraction for us that live there too!. It's wonderful to go to dinner at night with the family or to go and just sit and watch the boats and the bands that play outside. Some people even dance. The Orioles baseball stadium is right there and its a magnificent field. Fort Mchenry is a great place for school age children and show them right where Francis Scott Key was when he wrote the star bangled banner and the bunkers that were built to watch for the enemy. Field trips from area school's took us as a classroom there many times. A boat tour takes you up one side and down the other of the Chesapeake and tells you all the history along the way. Even takes you over an underground tunnel that cars go thru everyday. They built those fantastic hotels in walking distance for the tourist and the prices are not outrages. The big aquarium is there plus you are only 1 hour from DC to take in all the sights and history that has been preserved there. Most places people go on vacation are touristy so please don't miss out on the inner harbor and also the history of things right there in that city. Fells point is very nice if you like to shop little antique stores. My friend and I had lunch and shopped there many times. It has a huge farmers market with all fresh produce great if you live there. What time of year did you go badbloke? I sorry if you didn't find it pleasant with less people.
