One of the hottest boating destinations, if you can wrangle an invitation or if you own a boat, is the Baltimore Inner Harbor. And baseball is a big part of the cruise.
“You’re in the city and the stadium is so accessible — you can see it,” says Joanne Distasi of Medford, NJ.

The marina is a short walk or cab ride to the classic Camden Yards ball park. Dan says they try to make the run twice a year.
