This is always a must do for us. We love to walk along the inner harbor walkway. It is a great way to see a lot of water sites as well as get in a little exercise.

I love taking a walk around the Westsong. It’s pleasant and the views are gorgeous. Pack a sweater, as the breeze can gets chilly even on a warm day.

Love walking along here. If you don't rust or melt - do it in the rain also. Stroll or jog - you decide. Lovely all year round. Lot's to see! Take a camera.
