About a 20 minute walk from the Inner Harbor, you will find restaurants of every caliber, museums, beautiful churches, statues and small city gardens. A lovely, free park to enjoy. You can't take a bad picture from any of the four sides of the monument or the center of the street parks.

I saw this from the window of the bus..it should have stopped and let us see it and take pictures. I did not even know this existed. It is beautiful and very old. I liked it better than the one on the mall.

As part of the restoration the entire structure was gently cleaned, and repointed, and all the finishes restored to their historic appearance. The Baltimore County marble used to build the Monument comes from two different quarries--the base has a generally... More

It was undergoing restoration when I was there so there really wasn't anything to see. The surrounding garden was lovely with many blooming flowers.

Right now this monument is decorated with holiday lights. At night it is beautiful and if you are in the area, it is easy to find. But, this is a very historic monument. It was finished in 1829. It was the first monument built to honor George Washington and the oldest to still survive. It has appeared in many movies... More

Right now it is covered with scaffolding. Make sure the rehab work is finished before your planned visit! Plan to enjoy a walk around lovely Mt. Vernon.
