We went off season but the cherry blossom trees where in full bloom! Our kids loved walking around the grounds and by the water. Great memories for first time area visit.

Went to Baltimore with our family recently and the big attraction on our agenda was Fort McHenry. It was well worth the $20 we paid (10 for adults, kids free). Do not skip the movie in the beginning. We learned a lot about Baltimore’s role...More

Didn’t look like much as we drove up, but what a historic place to visit. Make one proud to be an America. Don’t miss the movie it is informative and well done with a dramatic ending.

To visit the Fort is $10 per person. However we only visited the Visitor center to see the exhibit and watch the video and the grounds and that is free.
