The best view of Baltimore period. Set at the foot of Inner Harbor, the World Trade Center offers great views of the waters. Watch water taxis, cruse ships, and paddle boats roam the water. Look out far into the water, see the views of the city. Look at the skyline and the mass buildings that makes of Baltimore. Signs inside... More

I would definitely recommend taking in the views of Baltimore and its harbor from the 27th Floor of the World Trade Center. If you have a clear day like we did, pictures are amazing! It was so nice to sit back and watch the dragon boats scattering about in the water from above. If you go, plan on spending 30-45... More

Top of the World is located on top of the World Trade Centre which is easy to miss - we came across it by chance just walking around the harbour. It's the pantagon-shaped building that looks like it's half in the water, between pier 3 (which has the aquarium on it) and the Harbour Place Gallery. Entry is through a... More

There are great 360 degree views of the city and a wonderful little 9/11 memorial. Ask them to explain what the notches on the outside monument represent. It is touching.

The memorial and special section on 9/11 is worth the entire trip. Price? Only $4.00 p/p for seniors! Even on an ugly winter day we could see all of Baltimore even to Chesapeake Bay. Do it!

We decided to take trip up to the observation tower after finding a groupon discount online. It was a beautiful sunny day which made for some excellent pictures of the city. It truly gives you a 360 view of the inner harbor and surrounding areas including the stadiums. They also have a nice section that pays tribute to the victims... More

I've lived in Baltimore for 8 years now and visited several times before I lived here, but I had never gone to The Top of the World observation deck before. This weekend friends were in town and they wanted the "tourist" treatment, so we went. I must say, it was an amazing few. Because it was clear, you could see... More

As the song state on a clear day you can see forever. Also a wonderful tribute to those who lost their lives on Sept.11th .

See the whole city on a clear day. Each window has markings as you look out to what building you are seeing. It names the buildings and some are listed with additional information. I noticed a lot of children and they seemed to be enjoying it also.
