Run (or walk) up this hill for a great view of the harbor and town. Seemed to be a safe place even before sunrise or after dark.

Don't get me wrong, Federal Hill is a fun place. There are a few nice restaurants and some fun bars but this place is overrun with high school and college kids on the weekends and it creates an atmosphere for mature adults that isn't conducive to a drama free evening.

We were fortunate to be here on a mild winter day and enjoyed watching the sunset while snacking on some of the yummiest ice cream. After a day exploring the harbor this spot allowed for some great views and a great way to unwind before the drive home.

Small park, but great views! Hard to find parking in the area but worth the effort. Alternatively, you can walk up!
