I would recommend the Aquarium and the USS Constellation (Both are right at the harbor). Or take the water taxi to Fort McHenry.

Here's the site for the Aquarium. You may purchase tickets on line which will save you time standing in line. I would also suggest walking over to Little Italy for lunch. If you have room for dessert, walk over to Vaccaro's where they have wonderful Italian pastries and gelato.

It's going to be such a beautiful day today in Baltimore. It really doesn't get much better than this. I suggest taking advantage of the weather and taking the water taxi from the Inner Harbor to Ft McHenry. Then get back on the taxi and have lunch in Fells Point or at the waterfront Marriott. From there you can ride back to the Inner Harbor and walk along the dock all the way to the American Visionary Arts Museum, which is a unique bit of Baltimoriana. Have fun.

Forgot to add: You can pick up the water taxi again from the Rusty Scupper restaurant, whick is right across the street from the AVAM.

We went directly to the visitor's center (no time to waste) and found the trolley tour was booked for 10:30..so we signed up for the 12:00..went and had a great brunch at I think..49...then back to the trolley..it was a great way to see alot in a short time ...what a beautiful town...we were lucky..the President was there the day before for the Naval Academy Graduation..so it was pretty much cleared out..but still busy. Lots of history, beautiful houses, flowers..a quaint and lovely place..so glad we were able to fit it in...
the Naval Academy is awesome!
