This is part of Baltimore that screams "old money," but nevertheless is just part of how classy Baltimore is . . . and it fits well with the rest of the city--diverse, enthusiastic, down home, and friendly. Might as well experience it all.

I highly recommend going here while you're in Baltimore. It was my favorite part of the trip. You do have to walk up over 200 steps but it is very doable and worth it to see the view. The staff are very informative and friendly....More

This is located at the top of a hill with park area going the four cardinal directions. Quiet place to relax, and a bit of early American history.

I enjoyed seeing this monument as well as the old church nearby. The flower garden was beautiful and small tables that you can sit have some coffee , read or relax for awhile.

I had no idea there was a second Washington Monument in Baltimore! It was $6 to walk up the 227 steps for a breathtaking view of the city. Great way to honor one of the founding fathers.

After walking upward, you can see the beautiful monument surrounded by green park. In the park there are some statues. Good place for walking around.

No, the one in Baltimore is older than DC's. It would be hard to confuse them.
Can we go to the top of the monument? Is there an open air deck at the top?
