Join us to explore invisible public spaces hidden in plain sight on this approximately 90 minute Inner Harbor alternative walking tour.
Baltimore's Inner Harbor is a celebrated success of waterfront redevelopment, but its spectacular looks disguise a contested past and challenging present. Discover the real stories of how powerful people, visionary plans, and community movements are still transforming the former industrial wharf into a premiere public space for all. Secret loading docks, coded brick patterns, environmental engineering, and forgotten monuments all reveal Baltimore's hidden truths.
The Inner Harbor Baltimore Drift includes:
A people's' history of Baltimore's waterfront transformation
Creative interpretations of architecture, urban design, and the harbor
Playful, participatory activities revealing who can do what where
Funny smells and free souvenirs
