Should we stop for a Saturday night in Baltimore?

Jump to last reply

Driving from Boston to DC in a few weeks, for the 3rd time in as many months, and I'm contemplating a stop in Baltimore Saturday afternoon for a night to break up the trip. (I know NY is the halfway point but don't have much interest in stopping there.) I visited the Inner Harbor about 25 years ago and remember a very fun restaurant with cold drafts and mallets to smash your crab on the table, then wandering some very cool shops. I'd love to do something similar, to give us a low-stress break in the trip. Low stress meaning drive into the inner harbor area, find a nice hotel on the water for around $150 where we can easily park the car, sit at a nice restaurant / pub for a nice dinner and drinks with a view of the bay (anything under $150 for 2 would be great), and leave in the morning refreshed and ready to arrive in DC.

Any thoughts / suggestions would be appreciated. I don't mind researching the hotels and restaurants - I'm really just looking for a sense of whether what I'm looking for is possible on a Saturday night in May in the Inner Harbor

Thanks!!
