I appreciate that I met a local lady and she told me to go to the Federal Hill Park where is the best point to see the whole harbor. We went around 6:30, the sunset was going to happen and the view is breathtaking. We stayed there around an hour and enjoyed it.

Great views of the harbor and downtown Baltimore. Although, not too much difficulty for me, it is an actual hill, and while there are steps on the west side, I found later, accessing it may be difficult for those who are disabled or have some type of injury.

The park is high above the inner harbor and gives spectacular views. If you use the stairway from the harbor it is above 75 steps and not for those with medical issues.

Tremendous picture opportunities up there, a great view all over the Harbour area; just be aware that you need to climb there ;)

Nice park on top of a hill with awesome view of the harbor. Wish we had taken a picnic! Take your camera and plan to visit a bit longer than we did.

This was a nice park with awesome views. It's a hike up the steps but well worth it. A nice swing area for children

One must walk up the towering steps to the top because the view is wonderful of the harbor. There are statues and a cannon at the top and a walking park area. You can also see the Children's Visionary Art Museum and all the sites at Inner Harbor. Kids would love to run up the hill and thankfully seats are... More
