Owner description: One of America's oldest seaports dating from the 1600s is today an important landmark and popular tourist destination. Park your car and follow the brick promenade through this bustling complex of eateries, stores, museums, entertainment and children's attractions. Sample the fresh seafood right out of Chesapeake Bay.

We have been there twice so far and will return at least twice more this year. There is so much to see, you cannot see it all in one visit (unless you stay for a week or so, which we cannot).

There are 4 historic ships to see, you can even get on board (with a paid ticket). It makes sense to buy tickets for all 4 ships, because that costs $18 per adult, while a ticket for just one ship would be $11 for the same adult.

There is also an old lighthouse that used to be out on the sea and has been moved to the harbour, and we heard that is free to visit in the summer season. We will visit that next time.

There are uncounted restaurants of all kinds around the harbour. Just everywhere you turn, there will be another eatery. We have not eaten in any of them, as they are not likely vegetarian and probably heavily overpriced. But those who like seafood or steaks will find a great selection here, I am sure.

There are also water taxis and little boats in dragon shape (I lack the real word in english). Great fun for children during the summer season!

Nearby is also the Baltimore World Trade Center, and it has some artefacts from its NYC sister buildings around it you can look at. You can even visit a high level of that building (27th floor) for a ticket fee, and I imagine the view over the harbour and the city must be marvellous.

There is really a lot to do in the harbour, and I wonder whether our 4 planned stays here will be enough to see everything worth seeing. So far we have stayed twice, and we have not seen half of it all yet.

Easily spend a couple of hours strolling and poking around this restored waterfront area. Nice restaurants, pubs, shops and the Science Museum and the National Aquarium are at opposite ends of a terrific scenic brick plaza-type area.
