My husband and I stayed the weekend in Baltimore for the Beyonce concert, and this was a great way to pass the time. the aquarium is also in the area (although we did not go) as well as Philips Seafood (which is where we ate). Good view, decent time, but small and there is not too much to do besides... More

I was not impressed with the area. I was surprised by homeless people! It was hard to enjoy myself swing that.

The Inner Harbor has it all. There is shopping,many restaurants, entertainers, artists, craft people and did I say authentic Maryland Food. Phillips restauraant is the place that discovered how to get Crabs to molt all year round ---creating the softshell crab business. You can'tgo wrong visiting the Inner Harbor.

Over the years, it has become just another tourist shop/chain restaurant area that could be in Cleveland, Kansas City or Jacksonville. it is good if you like that kind of thing, with lots of familiar names. I prefer to go for more local flavor, and not just... More

Early March is probably not the best time to visit Baltimore, but we still enjoyed walking around the inner harbor.

Lots of shopping, lots of food and drinks, and lots of people on a walkable waterfront rife with history and beauty. Grab a coffee and take a good, long walk. Points of interest abound. Most impressed by the 911 memorial and the gorgeous ships in harbor.

Visited with my young boys. We walked around the harbor on a cold afternoon. The boys loved playing PokemonGo as the found a lot of new and rare Pokemon. Definitely want to come back when the weather is warmer!

There is so much to do, all within walking distance. We had some rain, but went inside the aquarium. We had cold winds, but bundled up. The tall ships, the restaurants, the very friendly people. Our grandsons had their very first bus experience on the Charm City Connector out to Ft McHenry. (What other fort in the world in all... More

The Inner Harbor in Baltimore, created through the vision of former Mayor William Donald Schaefer, has an incredible variety of activities available for visitors. Of course one of the best things you could do is go to the visitor center as your first stop. They have a movie theater with interesting information about Baltimore, and they have lots of maps,...
