For more than 35 years, the blue-and-white fleet of Baltimore Water Taxi has whisked visitors and residents alike across the city's famed harbor. The taxis' routes include stops at top sights, from the National Aquarium to Fort McHenry, where Francis Scott Key penned the national anthem and several commercial jingles. Besides those acclaimed attractions, the boats sail toward a wide variety of popular shopping spots and restaurants.
Littrell's Car Care Center's team of ASE–certified technicians practice preventive care through factory-scheduled maintenance, state inspections, and simple tune-ups. Seasoned wrench-wranglers can unravel the enigma of a recently lit "check engine" light and guarantee all work for 18 months or 18,000 miles. Open five days a week, Littrell's full-service shop invites foreign and domestic vehicles alike to nestle up to each other in the bays, sharing cross-cultural perspectives.
The 90-minute narrated tour, led by expert guides who share insider info about the city and the Inner Harbor, shows off the city's prime sights. From the Annapolitan II, a luxury water van, you can spot Federal Hill, Fells Point, and the USS Constellation, and get a glimpse of Fort McHenry. While the open upper deck is ideal for making eye contact with attractions, a climate-controlled lower level, featuring a full-service bar with drinks and snacks available for purchase, provides some respite from potential awkward encounters with socially inept seabirds.
