You have the Walters Art Museum, the Peabody Conservatory, Mt. Vernon Methodist Church, the first USA monument to THE Founding Father and more stately mansions than you can count on one Circle. Nice hotels and B&B nearby. Stay here and just visit the Inner Harbor. I live a couple blocks away so say hello when in the "hood". I have a Cafe already in mind for a rendezvous!

“Good for the heart!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

Open on Thursdays and some weekend days. I love to test the stamina of my friends here. Truthfully, when you reach the top, it's so wonderful to get the different views of the city. The cool breeze coming through the openings is a delight!
