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.

Spent the afternoon roaming around the Inner Harbor while waiting to attend the Orioles game. I highly suggest staying in the Inner Harbor area. We ventured to Lexington Market for crab cakes at Faidley's Seafood & were very aware we were not in a safe area in the city. We ate quickly and went back to the Inner Harbor. It was very humid, but we managed to catch a breeze while taking a break from shopping/sightseeing. As soon as the game was over, we headed back to DC. We would've enjoyed spending more time in DC & less time in Baltimore.

Went here several times in the early and mid 2000's. Loved the place. Lots of eaterys and many many local shops,Many unique some touristy .(what is a vacation without some of these?). Visited this time last weekend. While the area is clean and well maintained. The water and the city are both still the stars, however.what happened to the shops. Lots of big eateries, one can only eat so much . We did the Aquarium and ate a lovely meal. The historic ships are great. Thank goodness for the water taxi. But really a believe it or not museum ? Tacky, H &M? I can do that at home. One spot ,the small fudge business with the singers remained. Sad no more business like that lasted . that is the type of individual charm that makes a visit unique. Disappointed this time.

We really enjoyed the inner harbour area. Full of shops and restaurants stops for water taxi site of the historic ships live entertainment. A little touristy but sometimes thats fun after a busy day. There are restaurants with balconies on the second floors of the mini malls where you can just relax eat or drink and watch the world go by

The Inner Harbor is right in the heart of Baltimore and offers a lot of things to do and see . We were initially just passing through but decided to stay the night and following day. We enjoyed walking close to the water's edge , admiring the harbor views and Baltimore skyline, as well as trying out some of the many restaurants and bars. There are several car parks close by ( rather expensive though) but conveniently located. Among the attractions you should consider viewing are the National Aquarium and adjacent submarine 423, the USS Constellation ( only Civil War era ship still afloat) and the Taney (light ship afloat that survived Pearl Harbor). Also the Pratt Street Power Plant is an interesting, restored historic building on the water's edge, containing a Hard Rock Cafe and Barnes and Noble store. However just chilling out in Harborplace and the gallery is an excellent option.
