Baltimore has a rich, storied history as a seaport. In lieu of a maritime museum, the city has revamped several historic ships and other seafaring attractions into museums that visitors can climb aboard and experience firsthand. The Inner Harbor has four historic ships: the U.S.S. Constellation, a sloop-of-war from 1854; the U.S.C.G.C. Taney, a Coast Guard cutter; a WWII-era submarine named the U.S.S. Torsk; and a lightship that went by many names over the years, but is now known as the Chesapeake. Tickets can be purchased at stands outside any of the ships, and if you plan to hop aboard several you can get a pretty steep discount. This tour also includes a memorial to men lost at sea and a historic lighthouse that has been turned into a museum. Come explore the historic ships docked in the Inner Harbor and take in some great Baltimore history along the way.

I do this walk every day on the way to work. It is very pleasant. In the early hours and on colder days it is not too crowded, but once the weather warms up and schools let out it is another story with a combination of locals, tourists, and history buffs. If you are looking for some interesting history there are signs along the way with factoids. On nice weekends there will be various street performers in the main inmer harbor area. I would say this is a must see if you are in Baltimore looking for something easy, historical, but outdoors.

Lots of scenery, crowded on weekends, nice little Italy. Flat minus the potholes and train tracks.

The Inner Harbor is a fun place to walk and explore, with lots of history and many options for food and entertainment. We made numerous trips there when we lived in the Washington, DC area, usually in conjunction with a visit to the National Aquarium or a baseball game at Camden Yards (to see the Red Sox).
