Nearly a quarter million passengers set sail from Baltimore on cruises last year.
When the United States waged war against England 200 years ago, Baltimore was at its center. Not only was the battle at Fort McHenry important, so too was what was being built in the Inner Harbor.
The Port of Baltimore’s future began its journey to the Seagirt Marine Terminal in April. By September, the monstrous Chinese cargo cranes now installed on rails atop the terminal’s 50-foot berth will be fully operational.
Big crowds are still enjoying the sights and sounds of Sailabration. The week-long event is well underway in Baltimore’s Harbor as Maryland celebrates the bicentennial of the War of 1812.
Sailabration is still in full swing at the Inner Harbor as thousands of people showed up to check out the big ships.
As the Star-Spangled Sailabration got underway, visitors had a chance to tour the ships from around the world that docked in Baltimore.
More than 40 tall ships and naval vessels from 12 countries will fill Baltimore’s waters starting June 13.
The bicentennial of the War of 1812 could be a profitable anniversary for Baltimore.
