Inner Harbor

Overview

Quote:
There are many things to do in this interesting town. The most popular attraction is the National Aquarium at the Inner Harbor. The City of Baltimore has created a mecca for tourists and residents alike to enjoy in their free time with the renovation of this area.

Quick Tips:

Be prepared to spend about a half day at the Aquarium. Also be prepared to stand in a long line to get in, so arrive early. There are plenty of places to eat at the Inner Harbor, as well as places to shop.

Best Way To Get Around:

Depending on how much of Baltimore you plan on seeing, you can walk or take a taxi. We mainly walked, but our time was spent in the Inner Harbor area.

Fuddruckers

Restaurant

Quote:
One of my personal favorites, and a great family restaurant, is Fuddrucker's restaurant. It's specialty is the great American hamburger, and they do it well. Their hamburger buns are made on the premises. There is a toppings bar, consisting of lettuce, tomatoes, onions, peppers, pickles and relishes. Help yourself! There are other entrees available besides hamburgers for the non-beef lovers, including chicken sandwiches and soups and salads. You can't go wrong for the price. It is a very popular place with families, both price-wise and otherwise. I don't think you can go wrong here. Try it for yourself!

Here we go again - for those of you who just can't imagine spending any part of a holiday away from the stores, this is your chance to indulge. There are over 100 stores, specialty and local artisians displaying their wares. It is close enough to the rest of the local Harbor scene that you scarcely miss a beat when you visit. Maybe you'll miss a little cash, but think of the satisfaction in being able to take it home with you. A physical reminder of your wonderful excursion to Baltimore. Some of the stores include Ann Taylor, skin care, accessories, leather, Victoria's secret, to name a few. There are also many choices of eateries, for full meals or just a snack, or when you need to get off your...Read More

Baltimore Maritime Museum

Attraction | "Baltimore Maritime Museu"

Quote:
For a modest fee you can get to be a part of maritime history on these three vessels. It's a great educational opportunity for teachers and their classes, as well. The submarine, the U.S.S. Torsk, is a National Historic Landmark. It sank the last two Japanese warships in World War II. The Chesapeake served as a lighthouse, guiding ships into the Bay. This ship is also on the National Register of Historic Places. The Coast Guard Cutter Taney is the last "survivor" of Pearl Harbor. The normal admission hours are from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. If you tend to be claustrophobic, you might want to skip going into the submarine for obvious reasons. But otherwise, you will enjoy your tour and learn a l...Read More

Anyone visiting this fair city has to make sure they save at least a portion of one day for this wonderful aquarium. It is multi-leveled and includes many areas of interest, from sting rays and sharks, freshwater pond life, rain forests, the ocean, and so on. You won't be disappointed or bored. The only thing that might put you off are the crowds, so arrive as early in the day as possible. They generally open at 9:00 a.m. and close at 6:00 p.m. Admission is $17.50 for adults, $9.50 for children, and $14.50 for senior citizens (60 and over). The Aquarium has its own food/snack facilities inside, or you can get your hand stamped to get something to eat in the Harbor area, and then return to finish...Read More
