Check out the stunning view of Baltimore from Federal Hill, just south of the Inner Harbor. There's a lot of history here, too: a celebration of the recently ratified federal Constitution gave the hill its name in 1789, and cannon placed atop the hill by union troops during the Civil War, their barrels pointed at the heart of the city, helped ensure Maryland remained in the union. federalhillonlinecom.
