  • If you're in the Inner Harbor area stop by the lighthouse for a quick peek. It has an interesting history and is worth the stop...especially since it's free.  more »
  • Walking around the Inner Harbor is great, as there is always something up ahead or around the next corner. This is one of those sites.  more »

  • A fun little (free!) attraction on the waterfront. Learn more about life on the Chesapeake in a neat museum. Worth checking out if you've never been, and throwing them a couple of bucks in donation for the tidy preservation of a slice of history.
  • About how many times will you get to step inside a lighthouse that was once in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. A must see for anyone interested in lighthouses and history.
  • Associated with the Preservation Society and Historic Ships, the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse is a free (donations appreciated though!) attraction situated near the National Aquarium in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Ascend the staircase and you'll enter the second floor of what one was a manned screw-pile lighthouse built at the mouth of the Patapsco River (literally, SCREWED right into the water's floor). There's plenty of information about the history and significance of the structure itself, as well as Baltimore's extensive use as a seaport. The staffer there at the time, Jamaal, was very friendly and happy to answer questions. If you're in the Inner Harbor and looking for a quick, 15-30-minute diversion, definitely stop by the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse!
  • I have been inside, seen it. How can I get a stamp for my log, just recently joined the lighthouse society; does anyone know? How do I get that info? J Torockio

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.
