Originally designated in 1706 as an official Port of Entry for the tobacco trade in Maryland, the Inner Harbor has continuously supported the city economy. In 1729, the Carroll family offered up the land we know today as the Inner Harbor.
The mouth of the Jones Falls lands at the Inner Harbor and combines with the Patapsco River. The Inner Harbor was previously known as "The Basin" thanks to its shallow waters, a factor that prohibited heavy industry or shipping containers from making their way into the area. However, this didn't stop the harbor from being a military supply center during World War II. Not much further away in the harbor is Fell's Point, a historic waterfront district with shopping, music, and a few notable residents.
Described by the Urban Land Institue as "the model for post-industrial waterfront redevelopment around the world," Inner Harbor is a historic seaport in Baltimore, Maryland. After the economic decline of the mid-20th century, the harbor was a focal point for the development of public spaces, tourism and business. The redevelopment plan was a move to help reconnect cities with their waterfronts. The renewal of this area started in March of 1958 with the adoption of the 33-acre Charles Center project. The Charles Center was rebuilt to include office buildings, hotels and rental shops. Another 240 acres surrounding the Inner Harbour was added to the redevelopment program in 1963. Corporate offices, hotels, and a public park and promenade was built along the shoreline of the Inner Harbor. Tourist attractions like the National Aquarium, Maryland Science Center, and the Harborplace festival marketplace was added to the mix. By the 1980s, the Inner Harbor area of the city of Baltimore has become a worldwide tourist attraction. Now, it is also a landmark of Baltimore. Today, the district includes the water west of President Street and the American Visionary Art Museum.
Located in the Inner Harbor area of Baltimore city, the Historic Ships of Baltimore is a tourist attraction that showcases over 200 years of Maryland's naval and maritime history.

It is the Crown Jewel of Inner Harbor. Another exhibit located here is the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse. Visitors can get tickets to see these exhibits, get guided tours, and participate in educational activities for as low as $15.
Opened on August 8, 1981, the National Aquarium is located on East Pratt St. in the Inner Harbor area. The aquarium is open to the public and sees a total of 1.5 visitors per year. The mission of the aquarium is to inspire the conservation of the world's aquatic treasures.

Some of the exhibits featured here are the Upland Tropical Rain Forest, an open ocean shark tank, an Atlantic Coral Reef, and Australia: Wild Extremes.
