Baltimore's Inner Harbor, July 6, 2006


Inner Harbor in Baltimore was my first-ever "favorite place," elected when I was a teenager, and now that I've traveled the whole country and been around the world, it maintains its title.  My favorite places are not just about beauty, uniqueness, or fun; they're also about how I feel when I'm there.  At peace.  Inspired.  Like I'm in a dream or part of something magic.  And you may say, whatever, it's just a port with some tourist trap stuff.  But I say, whatever, I love this place.  During a week-long visit with my family in Pennsylvania, my mom, brother, sister-in-law, and I make a day trip to Inner Harbor.  I take a couple hundred pictures in Baltimore today, most inside the National Aquarium, and I have selected many for the site.  They are organized into these seven links below:
