The Inner Harbor is where most visitors to Baltimore begin their visit. A square-shaped waterfront just south of the central business district, it's lined with museums, shops, restaurants and other attractions. Downtown fans out from the harbor, with Charles Street dividing the east and west sides of the city. Just to the east of downtown is Little Italy, a neighborhood of ethnic eateries and colorful, well-kept row houses.   Click here to see the full Baltimore travel guide on Travel42 »

Though the area was first settled in the early 1600s, Baltimore Town was founded in 1729. From the start, it was the site of bustling commerce, thanks to its deep harbor on the Patapsco River, a major tributary of Chesapeake Bay. Shipping and shipbuilding were some of its earliest industries, and the famous Baltimore-built clipper ships were the scourge of the British navy during the War of 1812.   Click here to see the full Baltimore travel guide on Travel42 »

Baltimore embraces the broad confluence of the Patapsco River and the Chesapeake Bay. Begin your visit to the city down by the water at the Inner Harbor. The thriving waterfront is just south of downtown Baltimore and is home to three important attractions: the National Aquarium (among the best in the world), the Maryland Science Center and the historic ships that comprise the Baltimore Maritime Museum. The Inner Harbor is just west of Little Italy and the charming former seamen's village of Fells Point. The neighborhood of Federal Hill, home to many fine restaurants, is directly south of the Inner Harbor. Fort McHenry National Monument sits at the north end of Locust Point, more than 2 mi/3 km to the west.   Click here to see the full Baltimore travel guide on Travel42 »

Baltimore's after-dark hot spots cover an area from Canton to Federal Hill. In general, Baltimore is a laid-back town that likes to linger over a beer and listen to music in a cozy setting rather than go clubbing until all hours of the morning. Many consider simply dining out the evening activity of choice.   Click here to see the full Baltimore travel guide on Travel42 »

Over the past decade or so, restaurants in Baltimore have morphed from down-home diners and seafood joints to the truly cosmopolitan and eclectic eateries more typical of a large, sophisticated city. Never fear, however—you can still find a down-home experience and some of the best seafood the country has to offer. The Chesapeake Bay provides a plentiful harvest for the city's regional specialties: plump crab cakes, fried soft-shell crabs or steamed crabs smothered in fiery Old Bay seasoning (a Baltimore experience not to be missed, especially during prime crab season, March-September). You can also find just about any ethnic or fusion cuisine your heart desires, at many price ranges and all within easy reach.  Click here to see the full Baltimore travel guide on Travel42 »
