This library had been on my bucket list for years! Unfortunately you cannot ascend any of the stairs so you'll only get the view from the ground. The famous reading room itself is smaller than it sometimes looks in photos, but is so worth a quick stop if you're in Baltimore. Before you plan to see it though, check the opening hours online. I believe it is not open for the public on weekends and on Mondays! This is a shot of the big waterfront walkway at Fell's Point in Baltimore. View of the harbor is great from this spot (although you can't see it in the shot) and there are a ton of cute gift stores, assorted shops, and pubs around the area. I went to an ice-cream shop called Maggie Moon--it was a bit like Cold Stone! The Pagoda, originally known as the Observatory, was designed in 1890 by Charles H. Latrobe, then Superintendent of Parks. The inside features a magnificent spiral staircase that looks like it stepped (no pun intended) right out of the movies. The windows are adorned with stained glass that cast dancing beams of light on the stairs, adding to the magic. This is the view from the top of the stairs.
Pagoda is open, Sundays, April 21-October 13th, 12-6, weather permitting.
This beautiful Baltimore sunset is peeking out through a gap in the fence at Druid Hill Park. The reflection on the lake is mesmerizing--but don't stay too long past dusk, because it's not the safest area.

Always helps when you have a beautiful view along your run! 🌅 The storm creeping in! The USS Constellation sits majestically in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. She was constructed in 1854, and is a Sloop of War. From 1859-1861 she disrupted the African slave trade. During that time she intercepted 3 slave trade ships and freed the African slaves. It is a great ship to visit and has been very nicely restored. There are also many wonderful events which are held on the ship. We're nearly at the end of may, and the orioles are holding fast to first place. The park is celebrating its 20th anniversary and those two facts combined can't sell this place out. It sure is beautiful though. The Pagoda, originally known as the Observatory, was designed in 1890 by Charles H. Latrobe, then Superintendent of Parks.

take a nap. Poe's original resting place Downtown Baltimore What a wonderful idea! Not only is the Baltimore Farmer's Market amazing, but with Go Go's Retread Threads, it is even more amazing and unique. This bus has all kinds of vintage clothes and accessories. It even has a fitting room so you can see just how fabulous you look in that silk screened dress. Im watching u... dancing with me ... mom, where r u... Sometimes you just need to sit back and soak in the harbor view... FEED ME. This Little Shop of Horrors creature can be found in an alley on the stretch of W Preston St between Maryland Ave and N Charles St. Just be sure to come prepared with a few live sacrifices. Jelly fish Gothic Church A channel leading to town from Baltimore's Inner Harbor. On a hot, muggy, and rainy day, it was the perfect spot to stop and watch school's of fish swim about in circular fashion, and see one occasionally fall victim to the two guys fishing just to my right..... Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse #InnerHarbor #Baltimore
#Maryland The Inner Harbor should be on everyone's to do list who comes to Baltimore. Walking around at night is particularly wonderful. Hidden gem...graffiti alley in Baltimore Everywhere you turn, Little Italy is sharing its pride on fire hydrants! Double rainbow! Ending a long day on the rooftop, soaking in the city's glory. #rooftopsunsets #cityliving Baltimore harbor at dusk after a good summer rain is refreshing and beautiful! Conveniently located near the Inner Harbor, Little Italy is one of my favorite Baltimore neighborhoods to stroll around and go on photo adventures. Everything is so classy, and there are nifty little alleys to peep through. By far the coolest Barnes & Noble I've ever been to. Located at the Baltimore harbor next to the Hard Rock Cafe and Phillips restaurant , this bookstore is a multi-level reading paradise. It's also part of the Pratt Street Power Plant, a historic former power plant which has undergone significant repurposing development since retirement. It's also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The lighting was perfect at the Dept. Of Surgery party at the Baltimore National Aquarium! I couldn't resist! Take a walk back in history. Plans are in the works for a renovation, but the library, situated in downtown Baltimore, is absolutely stunning right now! The Children's department has a koi pond (and a story teller!) and there's a night room, with a ceiling of stars and comfy pillows to sit on. The YA section has gorgeous manga inspired murals, and the humanities department has a massive graphic novel selection!!
Visit. You won't be disappointed! After the rain sunset. This is a view of the Baltimore Inner Harbor, it is a beautiful place to spend time and enjoy the day or afternoon. Jellyfish The clouds painting the city sky Great traffic circle, artwork, water fall and view of the Inner Harbor! Great jelly fish exhibit View of the Harbor from Fells Point Walking along the harbor on a cold, rainy December morning. The USS Constallation wasn't in dock but the US Torsk was. The National Aquarium is in the background. View of the Bromide Seltzer Arts Tower from the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards. Neat tower attached at bottom to fire station.

#blue 3 for $8?......YES PLEASE!! Special exhibit: Jellies The Pagoda at sunset. Patterson Park, Baltimore, MD. #Pixel2XL Deff worth checking out for some cool photos. And if your interested in partying there you can find discounted tickets on Groupon twice a month. The famous steamed blue crabs from Bo Brooke's Seafood in Baltimore. Terrific view, great beers, plenty of crabs for picking! Taken during a walk around downtown Baltimore on a cold rainy December morning. Clouds of steam billowing from manhole covers helped set the mood for the Tuesday morning commute. Black Reef Rawr!!! Just kidding I'm a turtle :) Nice early morning Sunday walk in Baltimore, Inner Harbor. Hash-brown Tacos make an amazing weekend brunch! #FoodieFinds City living Outstanding sightseeing in Baltimore...! A quick photo of what used to be the barracks for soldiers back towards WWI. Fort McHenry is best known as the place where Francis Scott Key composed the song the Star Spangled Banner. Happy hour at the tiki bar! Funky nutcracker fire hydrant Baltimore skies do it right sometimes... 🌅 I think this is one of the most awesome Hard Rock Cafe locations that I've ever been to. Housed in a former power plant, it truly gives this place that rustic, hard core exterior feel View of Baltimore Inner Harbor from atop Federal Hill
#urbanjungle Inner harbor Historic Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse built in 1855 and made of cast iron! Great place to go on a date because if he/she bores you, all of the tchotchkes on the wall won't! A super-plus: the food is magnificent sunrise in Baltimore city as viewed from Broadway street.

#baltimore #joesquared star in the dark sky... While visiting Inner Harbor and Little Italy, come see this 1800s historic shot tower, one of only eleven remaining and is managed by NPS. #Colorful Pre Seahawks game in Baltimore A lovely view of overcast Baltimore's Inner Harbor can be enjoyed from Frontier Hill, if you're willing to make a brief but steep ascent. This is now a park, but it was originally constructed for the army leading up to the Civil War. #USS Constellation #InnerHarbor
