You can Uber, or take a scooter, or I recommend take the water taxi. Historic, great views; National Park maintained by the Federal government; tours of the barracks and more. Views of the Francis Scott Key Bridge – see where the Star Spangled Banner was written!

An important historic landmark in Baltimore. The area around the fort is green and a nice place to walk. The site offers beautiful views of the water.
