Baltimore and Lancaster in Sept

We plan to visit Baltimore and Lancaster, PA also. We will be there for 5 days. We would like to see Baltimore by water taxi the first day. Is there any hotels close to the water taxi's? When we travel to Lancaster PA is there any good wineries on the way? Other things that we should plan to stop and see on our way to Lancaster?

Rough things we plan to do is see Inner Habor, like to find some good crab places to eat, see both the football and baseball stadums and amish country in PA.

We will have a rental car. Any suggustions or coments would be appreciated.

Boordy and Woodhall wineries are kinda on the way.

The water taxi stops at the Inner Harbor, and that's where most hotels are located so I'd start looking there. However if you're looking for high-class hotels, check out Henderson's Wharf and Admiral Fell Inn. Both are also on the water taxi route.

Inner Harbor will have some moderate priced hotels. Check Priceline.

Define "good" wineries? Not sure you can see the inside of the football stadium. You can walk thru Camden yards except when the O's are playing and then you need a ticket. Lancaster is only 90 minutes from Baltimore. Not that much to see on the way. Boordy Vineyards is not that far off of the highway on the way north and the valley in Balt co is quite lovely so would not dissuade you from that detour but don't expect great wines. (others may disagree and that's ok)

Ok, any wineries. We like touring different wineries every where we go. We get to see beautiful landscapes and get off the main roads then.

Basagnani and boordy are in Baltimore county and would be closest to a direct route.

Linganore is in Frederick County and would be a detour thru Gettysburg. That is a little longer ride. I have toured this winery and it was a nice tour/tasting. It would also let you visit downtown Frederick which would be a nice daytrip combination if you are not in a hurry to arrive in Lancaster. There may be some wineries on the PA side of the border but not familiar and don't have the time to do the research right now. Maybe a post in Lancaster would be of assistance.

Naylor Winery, just over the PA border, would be easy to get to on your trip to Lancaster:

Browns Orchards in Loganville would be a nice stop for lunch, just off I-83:

If you take the route of I-83 to US-30, you'll cross the Susquehanna at Wrightsville and Columbia, the scene of some interesting Civil War tidbits:
