Tips from locals
You can Uber, or take a scooter, or I recommend take the water taxi. Historic, great views; National Park maintained by the Federal government; tours of the barracks and more. Views of the Francis Scott Key Bridge – see where the Star Spangled Banner was written!
Fort McHenry is birthplace of the U.S. national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” sits at the mouth of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.
Amazing views of our city and so much fun with a group. We’re proud of how much history is here in Baltimore.
