Baltimore’s Inner Harbor has many stories to tell, from its heyday in the 18th century as the nation’s leading shipbuilding site, to a major site for oyster canning, steel working, railroad building, immigration port and military supply center. In 1980, the Inner Harbor area underwent a major revitalization with the addition of many attractions, hotels, restaurants and shops. Today, the Inner Harbor is a major tourist destination and port of call for cruise ships.
Attendee rates are available through May 21, or until room blocks fill.
One of Inner Harbor’s most popular attractions, Baltimore’s National Aquarium is jam-packed with 17,000 animals and award-winning exhibits.

You’ll need several hours to peruse this Baltimore aquarium, and you'll love every minute of it.
Fort McHenry is primarily known for the Battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812, when American troops stopped a British invasion. The battle inspired Francis Scott Key to pen what would become the national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner” – originally entitled “Defense of Fort McHenry”. During the Civil War, the fort served as a military prison. Another interesting fact: When a new flag is designed for use by the United States, it is first flown over Fort McHenry. This spectacular embodiment of the spirit of America is open most days for a visit and is a must-see for history fans.
One of the oldest scientific institutions in the United States, the Maryland Science Center is a learning center for all ages and was originally a meeting place for an amateur scientific society where members would discuss papers on a variety of natural science topics.
Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the beautiful baseball-only facility in downtown Baltimore, became the official home of the Orioles on April 6, 1992.

The Orioles play an 81-home game Major League Baseball schedule from April through September with ballpark tours available year-round.
