North America

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is the city’s premier tourist attraction, and rightfully so. Once a run-down port area populated by sailors, the Inner Harbor has become a revitalized masterpiece.


Grab a quick, inexpensive breakfast at Miss Shirley’s Café in the Constellation Energy Building. The southern-style breakfast is widely loved by locals and tourists alike.


From there, head over to The National Aquarium, one of the finest facilities of its kind. More than 1.4 million people visit every year to see 16,500 specimens in an array of environments and exhibits. Tickets for adults generally cost around $35. If you have time, stop by Maryland Science Center for fun exhibits, a planetarium and an observatory.


For lunch, pop into the nearby Pizzazz Tuscan Grille at the Pier 5 Hotel. The moderately-priced restaurant offers Italian cuisine, as well as vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and raw dishes. To walk off a bit of those carbs, head over to Harborplace, featuring waterfront shopping and entertainment.


As your day winds down, walk one block to Power Plant Live! for dinner and entertainment. The outdoor venue boasts free live music weekly during the summer months. With more than 3 million visitors annually, Power Plant Live! is a great way to cap off your trip.
