Inner Harbor Promenade Professional Review and Guide
"Baltimore sees some 11 million visitors each year; they are an important economic driver for the city, spending some $3 billion annually. As this book demonstrates, there are a ton of things to do in Charm City, and loads of interesting places to see. But the reality is that the vast majority of visitors to Baltimore head straight for the Inner Harbor and spend the majority of their time there. That’s a shame only if they fail to see any more of the city. But lingering in and around the harbor makes sense; it is the city’s major draw, hosting a wealth of attractions and putting on Baltimore’s best commercial face. Locals sometimes shun the glittering waterside jewel; after all, diehards usually find Baltimore’s seedier side the real attraction. And so the snide will scoff at this section as something not real, as a place for the out-of-towners. But even the most obdurate fan of grit and grime will find it almost impossible not to concede that a stroll around the harbor on a day with beautiful weather is a simple pleasure that’s hard to beat."
