We couldn't get out for another 5 days and went to Inner harbor. We stayed at the Sonesta hotel with a view of the harbor, with a beautiful view and there was lots to do. We were quite pleased. Read a lot of being careful there but we didn't see anything to that effect except some homeless which we gave... More

There is much to see walking around the Inner Harbor. The natural scenery of boats and bridges delight visitors and shoppers like to poke around many small and large shops plus enticing eateries.we loved walking all around even in the rain!

There are so many things to do! Wear comfortable shoes and plan to spend multiple days if you can. Once at the harbor area you can walk to everything or take the water taxi. There are historic boats, paddle boats, the science museum, the aquarium, shopping, lots of restaurants and hotels. Plus you're walking distance from the stadiums and arenas... More

The water taxis, restaurants, and boats make it a must do when in the city. The range of eateries from $$$ to $ is great. Do not miss little Italy near by for real Italian food and treats.

We had a nice walk in the fall around Inner Harbor. It was interesting to see the ships and the lighthouse. It seemed pretty safe. There were a lot of security guards around. There were plenty of places to eat if you needed to grab a bite, but they were all the typical chain restaurants. The aquarium, Ripley's Believe it... More

Looks like a refresh of the main building of the harbor is underway. It's due. It's looking a bit tired compared to our visit 15 years ago. Still a nice spot to see the ships. Chain restaurants are main fare and souvenir shops and a Ripley believe or not. Pretty view. Sadly Many homeless in the area (wish there was... More

Plenty of attractions in a relatively condensed area. Some are very touristy and others are not. I think most everyone can find something to enjoy. Great place to people watch too.

I loved how there were a plethora of shopping places and there was dozens of different activities to do there. It's definitely an experience of a lifetime and what I noticed is that plenty of the people there were running and/or jogging which shows how the population is relatively healthy. Anyways, this is a must see destination !!

I understand there was a lot of people there for events. The restaurants were not prepared staffing. Multiple times we didn't get food and or had awful service. The merry go round and boats were fun. At night it was real sketchy and downright unsafe. We saw multiple times situations that were not appropriate for children to see.
