I will be a visitor to Maryland traveling for work purposes and staying in the Owings Mills area. Arriving at the hotel early to mid afternoon the day before my commitments for work, I would like to explore the Inner Harbor area even for a short time and be back at the hotel before nightfall. This may be the only time I can travel about the city during day hours till I leave for home, so would like to take advantage of the few hours I have the day I arrive in Baltimore. I am not familiar with the area, but have a pamphlet that indicates the Metro Subway rides from Owings Mills to Charles Center, which seems to be the closest to the Harbor. I have been advised not to stop at Lexington Market due to the roughness of the area. I do not even know the travel time between areas. Is this a doable excursion, albeit short? Any suggestions or words of wisdom?
