Great view of the city and the harbor.

The federal hill district of Baltimore since it has been restored is a gem of a neighborhood that is only a sure walk from the inner harbor. On a nice day it is worth the walk.

Federal Hill overlooks the City and Harbor from a height of around 100 ft. The view is breathtaking for the first time visitor. You not only see Downtown and the Inner Harbor, you can look out the Outer Harbor, FSK Bridge and shipping. By the way, this is one of the best sites to see fireworks. Be sure to wander... More

Just after the snow melted, we traveled to the park at the top of the hill. Fortunately we had the opportunity to read up on the history of the hill from revolutionary war through the civil war and understand more of what we saw and could see over the harbor. I imagine in warm weather the grassy area will be... More

Excellent view overlooking the harbor and a nice, simple park where kids can play. For history buffs, there is a plaque giving a brief description of the history of Federal Hill as a fort. Further historical information about it's role in our nation's history can be sought elsewhere as there are no remaining structures from the civil war era.

If you want to be able to see the Inner Harbor, say as the first stop on a tour of Baltimore, Federal Hill is the place to go. Take a sandwich and sit on one of the park benches. There's a small playground for little kids. Maryland, being a border state, supplied troops to both sides of the Civil War;... More

Once again a peaceful park but during the Civil War Federal troops occupied this hill and kept cannons trained on the downtown to strike out against any Rebel invaders ( none came) and it's citizens, who were disposed to side with the Confederacy.

I enjoy this park for 2 reasons. Its a great place to bring a book and relax and look out over the city and get some fantastic views. I also like the fact that its a historical spot. Make sure to look for several plaques around the park that give you some interesting historical facts about the history of Federal... More

This is a large hill that overlooks the bay and all of the Baltimore waterfront. From the view on the hill, the sun sets in a way that the whole city is a nostalgic brick red. It's inspiring. Just go once, and see if you too might have an epiphany.
