Fort McHenry Visit
Sep 29, 2014 by: dragongem from Wilsonville, Oregon
It was very interesting, the tour guide at the Fort was very good and wanted to tell you all about what happen there. A great time was had by all and learned a lot about the history of what happen at the fort..a must see
Everyone needs to see this!

The facility is beautifully maintained and the teaching aids are comprehensive. The most impressive feature to me was that such a small garrison and fort could hold off a huge British force. You gain real appreciation for the courage and sacrifice of the people who built this country.

We took the water taxi to Fort McHenry. I would definitely recommend both the Fort and the water taxi. The visitors center at Fort McHenry is very nicely done and informative. There is a fee unless you have a park pass. The grounds are beautiful, but the information in the buildings and shared by the rangers are also very interesting - even for non history buffs. The walk way along the water is beautiful and you can really what a working port Baltimore is. The park is accessible.
Excellent Historic Site

Home to the Star Spangled Banner the Fort is one of the most historic sites in the US. It was an active fort through WWII. Today it is still in process of a continuing restoration process. It is a wonderful facility with a great visitors center, spectacular historic buildings and super views of the city and harbor. There are lots of activities and you can help raise the flag every morning. Right off I 95, don't miss it.
Star Spangled Spectacular

Our family visited during the bicentennial of the Star Spangled Banner. The movie at the Visitor Center told the story of our national anthem came to be. When the anthem was played, all stood and a curtain was raised, revealing our flag outside. Beautiful & moving. The activities at the fort itself were also well done and helped bring history to light for kids and adults alike.
