Tourism Tuesday: Monumental

February 15th, 2011 by WLOY Staff

Long, tall and gorgeous, Baltimore’s Washington Monument stands proudly in the classy Mount Vernon neighborhood.

Designed in the early 1800’s by the same architect who created the better-known Washington Monument in D.C., it can be seen from inside the sophisticated Walter’s Art Gallery and is only steps away from the musically rambunctious Peabody Institute.

Visitors can walk in the monument and climb the towers 228 steps for a great glimpse of Baltimore. The base has a small museum to provide visitors with some information to mull over on the climb.

For more information about climbing call 410.396.0929, or just take a jaunt around the outside and explore the whole area. It will be monumentally enjoyable.
