Baltimore's Inner Harbor Offers Plenty to do for Convergence Attendees
Posted 29 September 2015 | By
Faneca Porter is an ambassador with Baltimore’s Waterfront Partnership. She has an affable smile and cheerful disposition. It’s easy to catch her enthusiasm for all that Baltimore—and in particular, the city’s vibrant inner harbor—has to offer as she describes the multiple attractions within easy walking distance.
The Waterfront Partnership offers maps, directions and guidance to visitors to help them make the most of their time in Charm City. “People love to come to the harbor. We’re the hub of Baltimore city,” says Porter. “My favorite thing about the harbor would be the visitors. They make the harbor.”
Porter has a warm welcome for Regulatory Convergence attendees and encourages them to come explore the inner harbor and its attractions while they are in town. Some of the sites she recommends include the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse; the National Aquarium, the historic Pratt Street Power Plant building, which now houses a number of restaurants, bars and other businesses; the World Trade Center, which has an observation deck on the 27th floor; Baltimore’s historic ships; and the Maryland Science Center.
There is no shortage of things for conference attendees to do close to the hotels and convention center. That’s without even getting into Baltimore’s excellent dining options.
