I learned so much about our national anthem during this visit. The video that starts the tour will give you goose-bumps at the end! Our tour guide was excellent. We happened to visit on a very windy day so we did not get to experience...More
If you are visiting Baltimore, a visit to Fort McHenry is a must! I had no idea of all the history of the Fort and it's connection to the Star Spangle Banner. In the Visitor's Center be sure and see the free film about the...More
Our group took the Harbor Water Taxi to Fort McHenry. This is the easiest way to get to the Fort From downtown Baltimore. One caution, be sure to purchase a day ticket while in Baltimore. The Water Taxi does not sell tickets at Fort McHenry....More

You could either take a cab or the free bus called the Circulator. You would take the Banner Route on the Circulator to go from downtown to Ft. McHenry. It's 3 miles from the Inner Harbor to the Fort, so definitely walkable... More
You could either take a cab or the free bus called the Circulator. You would take the Banner Route on the Circulator to go from downtown to Ft. McHenry. It's 3 miles from the Inner Harbor to the Fort, so definitely walkable if you're up for it. It's not bad as long as the weather's nice. You'd see a few mediocre blocks with a lot of traffic, but you'd also see a lot of charming neighborhoods with different types of rowhouses. It's a good way to get a feel for the southern part of the city. (Oh, but which train are you taking? The Penn Line which drops you off 2 miles north of the harbor, or the Camden Line, which drops you downtown?)
