Welcome to Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine in Baltimore, Maryland.

I really loved my time at Fort McHenry.  It’s a great place to see a real piece of American history, to go for a walk along the water, and learn about our National Anthem!fort mchenry ftIMG_8103

This fort helped defend our country during the war of 1812!cannons at fort mchenry ftIMG_8093

You can see the Key Bridge which was named after Francis Scott Key who wrote the National Anthem right there!!key bridge from fort mchenry ftIMG_8060

You can see all sorts of ducks and waterfowl from the nice walking path!ducks at fort mchenry ftIMG_8070

If you want, you can pay to go inside the fort. If that’s not in your budget, you can walk the trail around the fort for free!  The short movie in the welcome center is free, too.

And dogs are welcome!

Fort McHenry is DEFINITELY Mr. Pish Approved!
