March Trip - Baltimore Inner Harbor

March 03, 2018 1:00 pm

Join us on Saturday, March 3 as we tour the Baltimore Inner Harbor for some street, landscape, and sunset photography.

The Inner Harbor is home to the National Aquarium, World Trade Center building, and Fort McHenry where Francis Scott Key wrote the Star-Spangled Banner. Baltimore is also a major port for ships.

Suggested Meetup time: 1 PM.

Meetup Location: Meet in front of the USS Constellation (301 E Pratt St, Baltimore, MD 21202)

If planning to attend this trip, it is recommended that club members exchange contact information to meet up and/or carpool.


If planning to drive, it’s recommended that club members carpool to the Inner Harbor. There are several parking garages available at different rates.

If you don’t want to drive to downtown Baltimore, you can also use the Light Rail to get to Baltimore but will have to do some walking. The below links will help you plan your trip using the Light Rail.


We’ll walk around the Inner Harbor and take pictures of the harbor along with exploring the USS Constellation, USS Chesapeake, and USS Torsk. We’ll also plan to go to the top level of the World Trade Center building to get a beautiful landscape view of Baltimore which would be perfect for landscape photography. Club members are free to navigate on their own if they choose.

Afterwards, we can eat together as a group in one of the different restaurants around the harbor.
