Baltimore is an ever popular charter bus destination for visitors who enjoy strolling the esplanades, visiting attractions such as the USS Constellation and heading to a Major League Baseball or National Football League game.  The Baltimore Inner Harbor area has more than 20 hotels that fill quickly when a convention is in town, as well as world class restaurants that feature cuisine both local and international.  A great way of getting in and around Baltimore is with a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Charter Bus Baltimore.

Charter bus visitors to Baltimore have many choices when it comes to accommodation and Harbor Court Baltimore offers harbor-view suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, full kitchens and luxury baths.  An indoor pool and sauna compliment a fitness facility.  Massage, tanning and personal training are available at an extra cost.  The hotel's Brightons restaurant, where fresh produce and local favorites like rockfish and crabcakes are on the menu, overlooks the harbor.  Another choice for charter bus visitors is the 1840s Carrollton Inn, a series of connected Federal-style townhouses facing a brick courtyard a few blocks from the harbor.  Rooms at the bed and breakfast feature fireplaces with marble mantles, whirlpool tubs and Kingsdown mattresses.  For charter bus travelers who are on a budget, the Baltimore Hostel, a 15-minute walk north of the harbor, offers budget-friendly lodging in single and dorm-style rooms.

For charter bus visitors having a little time to kill between their other activities can pay a visit to Camden Yards.  This home of the Orioles Major League Baseball team is a short walk from the Inner Harbor.  One of the original modern ballparks built to resemble early 20th-century baseball stadiums, Camden Yards features natural turf, brick archways and an asymmetrical field.  Fort McHenry guards the entrance to the Inner Harbor.  Charter bus visitors can take a self-guided tour of the fort, inspiration for the "Star Spangled Banner" takes about an hour.  For a charter bus group photo opportunity, take an elevator ride to the Top of the World, which provides charter bus visitors with panoramic views of the harbor, the Chesapeake Bay and downtown Baltimore.
