Held in partnership with the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy, Cultural Walk explores the fine architecture and world-renowned institutions along the Charles Street National Scenic Byway. Impressive buildings and monuments line the corridor, from Benjamin Latrobe's Basilica to the sophisticated minimalism of Mies van der Rohe's One Charles Center. The nation's first monument to George Washington stands tall in the center of Mount Vernon Place, just steps away from some of the nation's foremost cultural institutions, including the Walters Art Museum, Enoch Pratt Free Library, and the Peabody Institute. The tour concludes at Baltimore's Washington Monument, with a free self-guided tour inside the monument's base. The tour price does not include admission costs for the climb to the top of the monument; advanced reservations for the climb can be made on the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy's website.
Tours depart from the Inner Harbor Visitor Center at 401 Light Street.
