A defining landmark, Inner Harbor featured water too shallow in the 18th century for heavy industry. In the 1970s, a visit from tall, masted ships attracted tourism and led to the development of the National Aquarium, Maryland Science Center, and the Harborplace festival marketplace.

For travelers who use our world travel planner, Baltimore holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Inner Harbor and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
