First visit back to Baltimore in almost 2 decades. The harbor is much improved, with a nice feel. Good place to eat and enjoy the views. Certainly not in the same league as SanFrancisco , Seattle or most other big harbor cities, but nice. Much much better than it was. Pleasently surprised

Thank Courtney B

If you get a hotel near the Inner Harbor, you will within close walking distance of almost anything there is to see in downtown Baltimore. Additionally, you can pick up the water taxi, and, for $14.00 a day, it will take you anywhere you want to go by water, even Fort Mchenry. The Inner Harbor is not only easy walking... More

We had a great time walking the Inner Harbor. There is a great variety of things to do and see like the Aquarium, Science Center, and boat tours. Lots of shopping and eating all in one place. It is a bit pricey even for a small family of three. I highly recommend the Aquarium, we loved it. There are two... More

Many places at the Inner Harbor had closed up. It was sad to see so many in such a beautiful setting.

It's Baltimore's diamond in the rough. You can walk along the waterfront or dine in any of the numerous restaurants or shop. Everything is in close proximity. Please don't go swimming in the harbor, there are paddle boats for rent if you want a closer look.

If you're looking for a weekend in a not-too-far-away small, manageable city, Baltimore's Inner Harbor is perfect. Almost every neighborhood is within walking distance from another. There's Little Italy, Fell's Point, all around the harbor with beautiful views. Leinenkugel Beer Garden was fun. Don't even think about leaving without a trip to the aquarium...yes, it was THAT incredible!

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.
