“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
The Inner Harbor is a model of successful revitalization in Baltimore, to the point where it's almost too touristy. Key attractions include the National Aquarium and Camden Yard, home field of the Baltimore Orioles. Baltimore thinks big with shopping at the enormous Harborplace Mall and entertainment at Powerplant Live, a complex with bars, clubs and restaurants. At night the area is aglow with hotels and chain restaurants such as Cheesecake Factory and Ruth's Chris Steak House. But local restaurants like Miss Shirleys afford home-style relief, and there's no denying the appeal of waterfront strolls along the harbor.
