Baltimore Convention Center is centrally located downtown. Walkways
connect many downtown hotels and the Inner Harbor, with its colorful
shops, restaurants, and tourist attractions, such as the National Aquarium
and the Maryland Science Center. Oriole Park at Camden Yards, built
in the style of the great stadiums of the past, is just across the street,
and other popular attractions and hotels are within a short walking
distance. With its waterfront location, outstanding public transportation
network, and close proximity to New York, Philadelphia, and Washington
DC, Baltimore qualifies as a prime destination for convention goers.
