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.

If you didn't know it was there, you might miss it. It's well worth the admission price. Kids are a little cheaper and take a look at GROUPON for deals. A super fast elevator ride to the 27th floor leads you out to breathtaking views of the city towards the county. Explore the 9/11 exhibit and memorial. Travel around the... More

The observation deck is on the 27th floor, so it's not as high as many other skyscraper viewing points, however their view was very nice. The building is right on the north shore of Baltimore harbor, so the central location allows you to see all around & for quite some distance. It was also a nice way to get oriented... More

This is my 3rd time vistiting the Top of the World Observation Level of the World Trade Center, and I was even more amazed than the first time. Beautiful scenerly (love being a city girl), fantastic staff that offered their input. Loved seeing the honored names of the victims of 9/11 inscripted on the glass panes. Always very peaceful up...

The Observation Level is fantastic if you want to see all of Baltimore's sites. This can help you break your trip into small sections where you can visit multiple sites together. It's definitely a site not to be missed. The 9/11 Memorial of Maryland is also there and a piece of the building is anchored outside the World Trade Center.... More

This attraction is located in the heart of the Inner Harbor area in Baltimore. Displayed at the ground level entry to this tower is a metal frame portion from the fallen WTC towers on 9/11. Names of those from Maryland who perished on that day are etched on the huge base that the display is mounted on. Quite sobering. For... More

We had a nice day and therefor a great 360 degree view of Baltimore and great opportunity for pictures. (Too much to share!!!). Very impressive documentation on 9/11. When reading time frame, names and pictures and viewing the displayed pieces of the different places I was close to tears. Worth visiting!!
