Day 1 : Baltimore
-- - 3:00 PM
When Francis Scott Key wrote "The Star Spangled Banner" during the siege of Fort McHenry in 1814, no one knew that the little town would become one of America's great seaports. Baltimore has a unique turn-of-the-century flavor enhanced by such attractions as the Streetcar Museum, its revitalized Inner Harbor and the new/old Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles. Nearby, discover 18th century Annapolis and the U.S. Naval Academy. Or spend the day in Washington, DC, visiting national monuments such as the White House, the Smithsonian, and the Washington, Lincoln or Vietnam Memorials.
