Create an itinerary including Inner Harbor
A defining landmark, Inner Harbor featured water too shallow in the 18th century for heavy industry. In the 1970s, a visit from tall, masted ships attracted tourism and led to the development of the National Aquarium, Maryland Science Center, and the Harborplace festival marketplace. Restaurants, shops, and hotels fill the space between the attractions and create an attractive cityscape. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Baltimore holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Inner Harbor and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We were here on a Christmas evening. Most of the shops were closed barring a couple of souvenir stores. But, we absolutely loved the views of the water and had a fun time taking snaps of the reflections of buildings and ships. It wasn't too cold and the weather was good enough for a nice stroll. There are few historic ships stationed there. Parking was on the opposite side of the road.
  • The Baltimore Inner Harbor has great majestic views of the water. The 2 pavilions used to be the crown jewel of downtown Charm City. The restaurants and retail shops are all gone. It’s still a great area to walk around but there needs to be an investment to make things look more fresh and modern. The Inner Harbor is steps away from the famed “Charm’tastic Mile”.
