Full description

Discover Baltimore and uncover its strange and fascinating secrets with this app tour. Take a tour from the comfort of your smartphone, and the highlights of the city from the beginning at the inner harbor to the end at the Fort McHenry.

Explore the USS Constellation, the Baltimore Aquarium, and more on this picturesque stretch of walkway. Spot the locally famous “Mr. Trash Wheel,” a funky contraption built to keep Baltimore’s harbor clean.

Head to the Frederick Douglass Isaac Myers Maritime Park, which honors two African American heroes. Enjoy the atmosphere at the Horse You Came In On Saloon, which is supposedly the last place Edgar Allan Poe stopped on before his death.

Visit Douglass Place, a neighborhood of historic homes built by Douglass himself. See the city hall, which has seen some seriously rowdy altercations over the years. Travel with an audio guide that covers Washington Monument, Edgar Allan Poe’s grave, Babe Ruth's house and more.
