Baltimore, Maryland: World-Class Museums and Historic Waterfront Neighborhoods
Located just south of downtown Baltimore, the Inner Harbor has become one of the city’s best-known landmarks, a historic seaport that was redeveloped into a tourism district in the mid-20th century. You’ll find several museums here, from the National Aquarium—which houses more than 16,500 sea creatures—to the Historic Ships in Baltimore museum featuring the 1854 USS Constellation and the World War II–era USS Torsk submarine. Head up to the Baltimore World Trade Center's 27th-floor observation deck for 360-degree views of the Charm City's skyline, the Inner Harbor, and Chesapeake Bay.
The city is made up of many little neighborhoods, each of which has its own personality. Mount Vernon—one of the city’s oldest sections—has been a desirable address since the country’s first monument to George Washington was built there in 1829. Today, the neighborhood’s elegant 19th-century town homes share space with The Walters Art Museum and The Lyric opera house. Back on the waterfront, the cobblestone streets of Fell’s Point—a former sailors’ stopover established by William Fell in 1726—are lined with fashionable restaurants and lively taverns.
