The Baltimore Grand Prix, expected to draw 100,000 people to the Inner Harbor over Labor Day weekend, is a likely reason the city cracked this year’s list of the top 50 destinations for the summer’s last long holiday weekend.
Baltimore’s Inner Harbor area ranked No. 21 on Priceline.com. The city was not on last year’s rankings.
Priceline based the list on thousands of hotel room booking requests made through the online travel site. The Web site defines the Labor Day weekend as Sept. 3-5.
The inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix will zoom into the city Sept. 2-4. The two-mile course will takes drivers around the Inner Harbor and past Camden Yards.
