Baltimore Stories and Tips

Baltimore Beyond the Harborplace

You can enjoy even more attractions outside of the Inner Harbor.

Nearby, at the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House and 1812 Museum at 844 East Pratt Street, you can visit the 1793 home of Mary Pickersgill, who made the 30- by 42-foot Star-Spangled Banner which flew over Ft. McHenry and inspired Francis Scott Key to write the words to our national anthem.

The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum at 901 Pratt Street, with its steam, diesel and electric locomotives, and 19th century passenger and freight equipment is interesting even if you aren't into trains. The dramatic Roundhouse was built in 1884 by an architect who always wanted to construct a cathedral, and it shows.

Fell's Point, the oldest working maritime district in the U.S., is also a great place to dine, shop, and just sit outside and enjoy the busy harbor atmosphere.

Charles Street - Hop on and off the Trolley which runs from the Inner Harbor to Pennsylvania Station to shop at fine galleries and antique shops, as well as savor an assortment of international cuisine.

You could spend days at the Walters Art Gallery, at 600 North Charles Street, to see everything from Egyptian mummies, and armor and weaponry from prehistoric times to the 19th century, to masterpieces by Raphael and El Greco.

Baltimore has something fascinating for every member of your family.
