Tips

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.

Since most of this walking tour is outside, be sure to check the weather and plan ahead with items such as umbrellas and sunscreen. Even though the distance of this tour is short, good walking shoes are a necessity because you'll be standing the entire time. If you need a break, there are many restaurants around the harbor for lunch (you can also grab a snack and a seat inside the air conditioned Harborplace Mall). If you plan to tour through several ships, you can get multi-ship passes at a discounted rate.

It was great! You can kill two birds with one stone. You can hike and shop—simultaneously. And when your done, you can eat at one of the many restaurants along the trail.

This is a paved city walk by lots of chain restaurants and gimmicky touristy stores. It can be a nice walk though. Try to go in the morning or evening, and avoid the hoards of tourist.

Inner Harbor walking/easy hiking, on a warm, early-summer night. I managed to get 7 miles in. Don’t mean to romanticize and all, but to be perfectly honest, the outing reminded me of that old smooth jazz song. Just an absolutely marvelous night for walking and being on the Inner Harbor. There was music (house or techno) on one end of the Harbor, and a live band playing on the other end. I guess this is the reason why I couldn’t resist recalling that old song. If you don’t know the one I’m talking about, here’s the link: https://youtu.be/GDWNwIVCzxM Completed: 22-June-2019 (Saturday)

Nice walk-jog on a very crowded Inner Harbor trail in downtown Baltimore. This outing was not all about trail running, however. It was a nice day to get out and enjoy the weather and people in the city. Garmin recorded. Completed: 19 May 2019

Beautiful for slow stroll in a crowd. Not sure it qualifies as a trail any more than mall walking does. What kind of trail is rated by lots of shopping, dining and drinking?

We always enjoy a good walk around the Harbor, there are always things going on and sometimes it is nice and quiet in the colder months. It can get really busy during the summer with all the people, but there are some amazing restaurants, neat history info along the way, and tons to do. We always go to the aquarium first and then around do the walk around. You do have to pay for parking and that can really add up if your not careful where you park.

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).
