The Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel has an overhead walkway from the hotel to Harborplace, which has a plethora of good shopping and eateries. Unfortunately, the overhead walkway is not wheelchair-accessible, but ground level is wheelchair-accessible. There are food vendors ranging from sit-down restaurants to snack bars all around the hotel, so food choices abound. This hotel is at the recreational center of the Baltimore Inner Harbor Destination, so attractions, restaurants and great views are only steps away on every side of the hotel. Also accessible from the ground floor is the Gallery for your shopping pleasure.

Balticon is making arrangements with various organizations to help you enjoy Baltimore when you venture outside our hotel. Be sure to visit the Inner Harbor containing the National Aquarium and the USS Constellation, Camden Yards, where the Baltimore Orioles play*, and attractions such as Fort McHenry, where the Star Spangled Banner was written, the Maryland Science Center, the American Visionary Art Museum, and the B&O Railroad Museum with its collection of old trains. The Charm City Circulator can take to all these attractions and others for free.

(*- The Orioles will be playing home on May 28-30, at the end of Balticon, against the Washington Nationals.)
