|About these ratings|
Many of the attractions in Baltimore -- including the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, the USS Constellation, and the major sports stadiums -- are centered in the Inner Harbor. Since the 18th century, the Harbor has been one of the most important seaports in the country, with a prime position alongside the Chesapeake Bay. Apart from the surrounding sites, you can also spend the day walking around the area, taking in a street performance, or exploring the shops and restaurants. Some complain that the area can be somewhat of a tourist trap (with price tags to match). However, you don't have to spend an arm and leg. One TripAdvisor user says, "Historic buildings, souvenir shopping and restaurants abound. Prices are a bit high, as expected. We had a great afternoon walking around seeing all the unique things Baltimore has to offer."
The Harbor is a also a good starting point for getting to know the rest of the city, as it's close to central neighborhoods, like Little Italy and Fells Point. You can also jump on a water taxi here to get around.
