          I'm looking for a safe place for my 18-year-old daughter to stay May - August near the Inner Harbor where she'll be working. Is it safe for her to walk alone to/from Ocean Island Inn to the Inner Harbor? I'm reading that the Inn is great, but the neighborhood is a bit seedy/shady? Thanks!
