I have been coming to this area for many years on business. I make it a point to have some time to walk around and relax by the water. Nice place to shop and take time to eat. Always like to see what is old and what is new.

My husband and I spent the day at the inner harbor while here on vacation from Dallas. We went to various restaurant bars there on the harbor and enjoyed the people watching and scenery. We walked the shops and took the water taxi to Fells Point and back. It was a nice time, even for a hot day in July.... More

I enjoy walking around the harbor every time we visit. There are plenty of activities to do. Aquarium, boat tours, museums, and restaurants. There are no hard salesman like other cities. My son Loved the playground best.

There is so much to do in the inner harbor. It's sure to please everyone. We ate at Phillips and toured the submarine. It was incredibly hot outside and almost unbearable in the submarine. I recommend visiting during the early morning hours during the summer months. There are lots of water tours. Kids will get a kick out of the... More

There was a busy vibe to the inner harbor. Lots of shops and restaurants to satisfy all interests. The water taxis were great for seeing all the different attractions including Fell's Point and Fort McHenry.

The inner harbor is great - the problem is it is in Baltimore which is not great. I never feel safe in this city, don't get off a main strip - especially at night.

Nice place to check out and take in the views. They have some chain restaurants, shops and what not. Also some big ships and boats. The aquarium is quite nice as well. They could use more things for younger adults in their 20s to do for fun though. Definitely worth stopping by atleast once though regardless

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.
