A good 360 view of the city. With a groupon you can also get very cheap tickets to the top. There is a touching tribute to the 9/11 attacks, both at the top and outside.

Definitely, a must do if you are in Baltimore. From the 27th floor you can see the inner harbour waterway and the surrounding land areas of the inner harbour. I was in awe! Go early so you have lots of time to take photos and...More

I was so glade that the weather was only overcast with the sun peaking through. From the top, you could see all directions. A really good view of the downtown core and out to the harbour.
