Once one of the busiest ports in the United States, the former run down Inner Harbour of Baltimore is now a restored brainchild of former mayor, Donald Schaefer.

And very touristy it is too; a five square block of waterside bounded by the National Aquarium, Harborplace, the Maryland Science Center, and a flotilla of ships to welcome you aboard.

Baltimore Sightseeing

While a visit to Harborplace and Federal Hill should be on your agenda, don't forget the genuine neighbourhoods.

You can take a water taxi across the harbour to Fell's Point, for a social encounter with real life streets.

Little Italy is between Harborplace and Fell's Point. Buses 7 and 10 leave from Pratt Street to Abermarle Street. Plenty of Italian ristorantes, of course.

Many macabre types come to Baltimore to visit the grave of Edgar Allan Poe, while baseball fans know Baltimore as the birthplace of Babe Ruth.

Another famous site, is the Basilica of the Assumption; the first Roman Catholic cathedral built in the United States (1806 to 1821).

The city also erected the first monuments to Christopher Columbus (1797) and George Washington (1815-1829).

Around Maryland
