A wide variety of things to do and places to eat. Easy to get around, but be prepared to watch the traffic lights when crossing streets. Eating at one of the restaurant's outdoor areas can provide hours of entertaining people-watching.

Modern harbour, with a few great historic values. There is a lot to do, never a dull moment. We liked it a lot.

This area is worth a visit because of the water views and the convenience of the restaurants and a few attractions. We were disappointed that many of the shops in the pavilions were closed. The brochures snd website need updating. Some of the stores have been closed over a year.

I stay near the inner harbor as often as I can when I travel. It's great for a jog and relaxing at the end of the day. There are a few beer bars around it that you can have a pint at to end your day.

The inner harbor is a place to go grab bite to eat, catch the taxis and boat tours and hit the museums o. The water. They have some clothing stores but it's not a strip mall per say, with most of the stores restaurants littered with a few gift shops it's more a stop for lunch and dinner. They have... More

Hubby would take me here every year for my birthday. Sometimes we'd go check out a baseball game next door at Camden. Usually we would visit the Aquarium, listen to the bands play on the outdoor stage and eat at the Hard Rock or Phillips or the Tex-Mex place and stroll the grounds of the I.H. Gradually things went down... More

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

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.
