A walk around Fort McHenry

Fort McHenry is a pretty big and interesting place, so interesting that people often don't have time to walk around outside the fort. Which is too bad because the grounds are half the fun. The fort sits at the end of Locust Point and offers a great view of a large chunk of Baltimore's harbor. If you are standing on the end of Locust Point, with the fort at your back, you'll be able to see Canton on your left, Curtis Bay on your right, and way off in front of you, the Key Bridge and Fort Carroll. A paved trail circles the grounds and the admission is free, though there is a nominal fee to enter the fort proper.
