The Inner Harbor is a Cultural and Entertainment Mecca (& You Can Live Here)
Ahh, Baltimore. The mid-Atlantic’s most charming city, Baltimore is as unique and diverse as its more than 220 neighborhoods (Yes, there are really that many; did you know?), but none is perhaps more alluring than the majestic and the beautiful, “the model for post-industrial waterfront redevelopment around the world” (Urban Land Institute 2009):
The Inner Harbor
Once a major historic seaport, Baltimore fell subject to the economic decline of the mid 20th century, as its harbor and many others like it were abandoned with the arrival of container ships after World War II. Freight and passenger use of the Inner Harbor was suspended completely by the 1950s; warehouses and piers fallen into disrepair were demolished, and parks for recreation and gathering planted in their stead.
It’s here where our story begins, here where the Inner Harbor residents and visitors alike have come to know and love began to take shape.
Construction of these award-winning, lush parks and plazas was soon followed by office buildings, hotels, entertainment attractions, and luxury residences as Baltimore’s Inner Harbor quickly became a model for urban renaissance around the world. Redevelopment continued and expanded into and through the 1960s, and on the occasion of the US Bicentennial in 1976, eight ships carrying tourists from around the world marveled over the beautiful and fun destination Baltimore had become.
Then, just four years later — on July 4, 1980 — the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, and the Harborplace festival marketplace opened, and now, 35 years after that, Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is a cultural and entertainment mecca.
