A cheap view of Baltimore giving great views of the city and lots of historical information around Baltimore too. There is a dedicated lift giving you fast access to the viewing floor.

Most view a city by doing Hop-on-Hop off or taking water cruises to get a good overview of any city and both are excellent. By visiting an observation tower of whatever sort, a third dimension is obtained by seeing the whole spread of the city...More

It's a beautiful view of the city with a lot of historical info available and points of interest marked out to try to find. The 9-11 memorial is nice, but I wouldn't call the visit a 9-11 memorial. It's more like a view of the...More

I decided to do this as I was in town for a work conference. The views were good, but I must admit my hotel room on the 33rd floor was about the same. Outside had some neat 911 artifacts and memorials which I loved. If...More

We have to thank Groupon for this one. $7.25 for two people could not be beat! The observatory is on the 27th floor and the elevator was a quick trip. The views were amazing and they had nice tribute to victims of the 9/11 tragedy....More
