Family visit to the harbor

Loved the ship tours, especially the submarine. USS Constellation was fascinating. Both ships are definitely not for tall people

Baltimore has done a wonderful job of taking a tired aging port and turning it into a modern, attractive place that draws locals as well as visitors. The renovation of the Pratt Street Power Plant, which dates from 1900 and was abandoned in 1975, is an urban success story. The brick building looks fresh and modern and a major landmark.... More

Pretty much the same as years ago. The building with most of the food options is being remodeled and is pretty pathetic.

Walking from our hotel, the harbor crowds were easy to maneuver around with lots of tourist looking at the sights along the water. There are many restaurants and establishments in and around the harbor that tourists... More

The Inner Harbor is worth a visit if you are in Baltimore, don't get me wrong. But the pavillions at the harbor have lost some their allure. The quirky and interesting little shops have been pushed out to some extent by national retailers. Same places you would find in a suburban mall. But the rest of the harbor is still... More

Stopped here while visiting colleges. Nothing for young adults to do. If your kids are still young enough to enjoy the aquarium, discovery museum and boat rides then you will have a great time.

This is a great place to spend a day when seeing Baltimore. There are a bunch of great restaurants and several different museums/sights to see while down here. It is also walking distance to the stadiums for the Orioles and the Ravens.

This is my first time visiting the inner harbor area. Beautiful walk along the harbor with so much possibilities: science museum, national aquarium, marine, shopping ,restaurant. Recommending along the harbor promenade.
