Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is the city’s tourist hub, and it’s easy to see way. This is where visitors will find the city’s greatest concentration of hotels, museums, shops, and restaurants – not to mention lovely water views. Baltimore is set on an arm of the Chesapeke Bay, and the aptly named Inner Harbor neighborhood surrounds, well, a harbor; many attractions are along the north side of the harbor, including the famous National Aquarium. Water taxis are available to the developing East Harbor neighborhood, where the Four Seasons is located. East Harbor is closer to Fells Point and Little Italy.
Locals tend to congregate in Fells Point and Midtown rather than Inner Harbor, which has its fair share of tourist traps. Fells Point is one of the most charming historic neighborhoods, featuring brick townhouses, cobblestone streets, and excellent nightlife. Midtown has excellent restaurants, the train station, art museums, and the original Washington Monument.
