What we'll do
This will be a 13-14 mile walk (flat, pace 3 miles/hour) through some of Baltimore's historic and ethnic neighborhoods. Starting at Federal Hill area, our tour will take in the Cross Street Market, Federal Hill Park, Poe burial site, Lexington Market, Washington Monument, City Hall, Shot Tower, Johns Hopkins hospital, Butchers Hill, Patterson Park, Fells Point, Little Italy, and the Inner Harbor. Stops en route for lunch, coffee/soda and restroom breaks; dinner is also possible. This hike is also a great opportunity to ride the Amtrak Acela for under $20. We will park at the BWI Amtrak station and take the train into Baltimore. Alternative transportation, including car pooling all the way, or starting the train journey earlier in Union Station, are possible - just meet the group at the Amtrak station in Baltimore.

Booking instructions shortly.
