Baltimore with teenage boys for one day

Looking for suggestions for one day in Baltimore with 2 13 year old boys. We have visited inner harbor before, including the aquarium, the tall ships and the sub that they have in inner harbor. Any other suggestions? Also thought we'd try to get some really good pizza in Little Italy somewhere. Suggestions? i saw several recommendations for Vaccaros for dessert so will likely try that.
Thanks!

Any interest in a baseball game at Camden Yards?
It is within walking distance of the Inner Harbor.
Any interest in Fort McHenry?

We're actually there to play baseball for the weekend at the Ripken Stadium! We're big baseball fans but have been to Camden yards already and it's actually this Friday so too early for baseball. Can you give me any info on Fort McHenry? I thought about taking the water taxi there but wasn't sure if they'd enjoy it... Thanks!

Don't miss this since they are into baseball:

The Maryland Science Center is also very good and has good IMAX films too (8 IMAX films currently playing).

I would say a baseball game and a water taxi to Fells Point for lunch/supper.

Gillybrit,

I recommend checking out one of the markets: Lexington Market, Cross Street Market or the Broadway Market... for some great seafood and a slice of real Bawlmer. Lexington Market downtown I always thought of as the heart of Baltimore's African-American community, sometimes has entertainment...I loved going to Faidley's here for seafood chowder. Cross Street Market is in Federal Hill, a charming old Baltimore neighborhood, again with terrific seafood, just south of the Inner Harbour. Broadway Market is in Fell's Point, another venerable old (but quite gentrified now) Baltimore neighborhood, probably the most touristed of the three, is accessible by water taxi from the Inner Harbour.

Have a great trip! Daniel

If the weather is good, you can take the water taxi to Fort McHenry and then back to Little Itlay for lunch/dinner. If weather is not so good, yes, do the Science center and then take a short walk over to the Visionary Museum. You could lunch/dinner in Federal Hill. The free circulator bus is a great way to get around. You can even take it over to the B& O Railroad museum, another favorite.

Best pizza - Maria D's in Federal Hill... I know, I just got back from Italy. It's not wood fired, but it is yummy! Enjoy your visit.
