The historic port of Baltimore—a city that’s best known for its Aquarium, the Orioles Stadium, and the beautiful Johns Hopkins campus—is this urban destination’s most affordable travel-friendly corner.

Baltimore Water Taxi

Cruise the harbor affordably (you can get a map of landing points at the tourist center in the Inner Harbor) on one of these open-air, blue-and-white motorboats.

Lexington Market

Stroll up to the covered 18th-century Lexington Market for picnic fixings and free Friday and Saturday lunchtime jazz and blues concerts.

Mary Mervis Delicatessen

Pick up the Oriole—turkey, corned beef, pastrami, Russian dressing and slaw served on sliced bread—or a shrimp salad to go at this 1913-vintage deli that’s so popular that it FedEx’s its sandwiches to fans across the states.

Blue Moon Café

In historic, happening Fells Point, the area’s favorite greasy spoon fries up omelettes and other tasty breakfast staples from morning until late at night.

Celie's Waterfront Inn

Half the small but stylish rooms overlook the harbor; so does the roof deck, a great place to have breakfast.
