Baltimore's Inner Harbor has become the city's focal point for rental bus visitors. The Inner Harbor has operated as an important seaport in the US since the 1700s. This deep-water port remains highly active, although the area surrounding the harbor began to blossom into an attractive commercial and cultural center beginning in the 1970s. Since then, Baltimore's Inner Harbor has been completely transformed from an industrial zone covered in warehouses into the city's premier destination for cosmopolitan entertainment and activities. Getting in and around Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is best done with a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus rented from Baltimore Bus Rentals.

For rental bus visitors with an interest in the culture and arts, the Inner Harbor brims with museums. Baltimore Bus Rentals recommends several places for rental bus visitors to explore, including the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture, as well as the Baltimore Maritime Museum. Nearby sits the American Visionary Art Museum, with its eclectic collection of outsider art, replete with quirky exhibits featuring everything from sculptures and paintings to relief works and concept pieces. There's also the Baltimore Museum of Industry, which is house in an 1865 oyster cannery building near the docks. Families on a rental bus visit with kids may also enjoy the Port Discovery Children's Museum, with its three floors of hands-on interactive displays.

Another of the Inner Harbor's main attractions, and a firm favorite with rental bus visitors, is the National Aquarium. This aquarium features over 16,000 sea creatures, including sharks, sting rays, dolphins and tropical fish. The aquarium also has a live-action dolphin show along with a rain forest ecosystem and an Australian environment. Rental bus visitors can also make a stop at the Maryland Science Center, which features lots of interactive exhibits and an IMAX theater, along with a planetarium. For a look into the history of the US, visit Fort McHenry and the Star-Spangled Banner House. Fort McHenry was the legendary site of the battle against the British during the War of 1812 that inspired Francis Scott Key to compose the national anthem. The Star-Spangled Banner House, built in 1793, was the home where Mary Pickersgill sewed the original flag that flew over the nearby fort during the British bombardment.

Rental bus visitors wanting to do some shopping can wander about Harborplace and the Gallery. Located a short rental bus ride away on Pratt Street, this enormous shopping complex boasts a vast assortment of stores and restaurants to choose from. Rental bus shoppers bustle between the Pratt St. Pavilion and the Light St. Pavilion, both of which are situated adjacent to the Gallery. In the middle of these pavilions lies the Harborplace Amphitheater, which hosts a seasonal concert series as well as a diverse lineup of street performers and other entertainment, such as holiday fireworks and Ravens rallies.
