This is both historical and educational. The Netflix original show “House of Cards” was filmed here twice. Very pretty place around this area.

Neat monument, lots of history, in a very pleasant neighborhood with homes and institutions. Haven't done the climb up yet. But definitely you should stop by if you are in Baltimore.

Enjoyed looking around the Washington monument. The docent was excellent and told us a little history. We did not go up to the top, was already worn out but enjoyed just being inside the monument.

NO PARKING.. It was a pain... Great view from the top. It is a well worth walking tour by yourself or with a few friends.

The historic Mount Vernon housed the original George Washington Monument, Peabody Conservatory, Peabody Library, Walters Art Museum, United Methodist Church and rows of gorgeous brownstones. It is a well worth walking tour by yourself or with a few friends.
