Great place for a stroll and people watching

Spent the afternoon here sightseeing with my wife, the place is really spruced up and has friendly staff to help out if needed, higher end eating establishments.

Visit the different shops at the harbor, take a water taxi to continue shopping. Look at the sceneries

The U.S.S. Constelltaion is Not an aircraft carrier but a sailing ship. In fact the last "all sail powered" ship in the fleet. It also served during the Cival war! Some lucky midshipmen get to taker her out as part on their education. What a part of history, We were in Baltimore Inner Harbor during "Fleet Week" so saw several... More

I always have a great day when I take the drive to B'more's Harbor. The atmosphere is just pleasant. So much to see and do, shopping, restaurants, outdoor shows, boat rides or just stroll the pier with your babe. Great place to bring the kids too.

If you want a quick snapshot and safe options, this is for you. It reminds me of Navy Pier in Chicago: a place, as a Chicogoan, I avoid.

There's no doubt that the Inner Harbor is Baltimore's main tourist area. It's interesting rather then charming but worth a visit. Plenty of restaurants and bars.

Just missed Fleet Week but, the Inner Harbor is a great day trip at any time! The water taxi will help move you from the various points of interest. A beautiful day to be out on the water.

This is a great day trip solo, with friends or family. The harbor has lots of restaurants, attractions and a beautiful view. Was a wonderful placecto take the camera for a walk as well.

The place could be fantastic but they have some serious social issues to deal with. I was quite disturbed by the children begging money every time I turned around. I found a lot of the streets outside some big name restaurants and stores to be quite dirty. If they cleaned it up a bit it would be an amazing place.

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.
