I had no idea there was a second Washington Monument in Baltimore! It was $6 to walk up the 227 steps for a breathtaking view of the city. Great way to honor one of the founding fathers.

After walking upward, you can see the beautiful monument surrounded by green park. In the park there are some statues. Good place for walking around.

One of the nicest part of Baltimore. The neighborhood is quite calm and safe. Several restaurants around and small parks

Interesting but I would not make a point just to see this and leave. Make it a part of an overall tour through the small park areas, the Pope John Paul II prayer garden, the Walters Museum, and Peabody Library.

We were traveling around and found this monument and knew we had to stop. The D.C. monument is grander but this one exemplifies Washington's style, humble and done well.

No, the one in Baltimore is older than DC's. It would be hard to confuse them.
