  • Be sure to see both grave sites. Poe was moved to the front of the cemetery in the late 1800s. The area is safe, but remember you're in a city.
  • This historic cemetery is fascinating. Take your time here. It's quiet and the photo opportunities are many. Make sure to see both of his graves!
  • An unbelievabley beautiful and historic old graveyard, I love how it winds around and even undwr the church!
  • Took my son here for a school project. Easy Street parking a not too busy on a Saturday. Other notable Graves located here on the church grounds including one that is bent and was on Ripley's Believe It or Not. Most burials are from the 18th century. It's Baltimore so there's trash everywhere. I didn't bother moving any of it for my photos. It was pretty windy so it kept blowing to the corner.
  • Neat graveyard with a lot of history, Poe's grave of just the tip of the iceberg. Lots of helpful signs give you a self guided tour of Baltimore's people and history.

Where to stay in Baltimore

For quick and easy access to practically all of Baltimore's major attractionswhile on holiday, follow the example of most tourists and stay near the Inner Harbor neighborhood. Few cities boast such a well-defined tourist district, it shouldn't come as a surprise that all the major chain hotels in the city are located right in this busy neighborhood. If you prefer to stay in a quieter area offering a bit more local character, consider one of the city's outlying districts, offering affordable accommodations and plenty of dining and shopping options.
