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.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
