Your Inner Harbor Starting Point
With oodles of shops and restaurants, world-class entertainment venues and interesting attractions, Inner Harbor is one of Baltimore's most popular areas. Adjacent to much of the action is Pier 5 Hotel, which is situated in an ideal location beside the National Aquarium, Pier Six Pavilion and the Power Plant Live! entertainment complex. From our hotel, you can walk to many of Inner Harbor's points of interest, or hop the Harbor Magic shuttle to anywhere in Inner Harbor, Fell's Point or to Johns Hopkins Hospital. Because Pier 5 Hotel is right on the harbor, it's easy to hop a water taxi, too. Below, you'll find some of our favorite attractions listed, as well as an estimate of how long it takes to walk or be shuttled there.
Be sure to ask your Harbor Magic Specialist for dining and attraction recommendations, and check out TravelGuideBaltimore.com for more information on things to do in Charm City.
