Fells Point sampling all that the area has to offer. We have mixed feelings about the area and the tourist destination it has become. I suppose that being in small communities and remote anchorages for months may have jaded our perception of what we expected once we arrived back in the big city. Fells Point is just as we remember it. By some estimates there are over 120 small restaurants and bars in the Fells Point neighborhood and the area is visited by thousands of tourists each year. If you enjoy the nightlife, musical entertainment, and a whirlwind of crowds, you will love Fells Point. We can only eat and drink so much and it's time to move on to quieter waters. This isn't really a family friendly location and one of the reasons we stopped here was so our family could come and visit. Fortunately the harbor provides a very colorful boat ride, so a slow cruise on the Patapsco River is always a fun day.
Charm City Circulator. Most everything is within a short walking distance and taxis are plentiful for traveling a little farther afield. Some of the main attractions are the Maryland Science Center, one of the oldest scientific institutions in the United States, and includes an Imax theater, the world renowned National Aquarium, the Baltimore Maritime Museum featuring the USS Torsk, the USCGC Taney, the Lightship Chesapeake, the Childrens Museum and many, many more attractions. We have enjoyed the Inner Harbor over the years and it has been a joy to watch it expand and grow. Many of the adjoining neighborhoods have also benefited from the revitalization. We highly recommend planning a multi-day visit if you find yourself in Baltimore. All of the marinas that surround the inner harbor start at $2.00 per foot for transient dockage. Some offer better rates for weekly and monthly stays, but it is expensive compared to marinas where we have stayed from Virginia to Florida, including the Bahamas. You can find plenty of room to anchor around both Fells Point and the Inner Harbor, and there are even a few free docks at which to tie. Keep in mind that these free docks leave you exposed to the hordes of tourists that walk the promenade. It is indeed a great place, but we soon found it was time to move on to somewhere with a little slower pace.
