One of the things we love to do when we go to a city is to observe the area from a different perspective.  Seeing the view from above is a really great way to take in the sights and see the architecture and lay of the land.  Looking down from the top of the One World Observatory in New York City, riding the Coca-Cola London Eye or taking a tram up Duquesne Incline in Pittsburgh have all been really enjoyable ways to appreciate the beauty a city has to offer.

This past weekend, we traveled* to Baltimore, making a stop at the Top of the World, Baltimore’s World Trade Center.

Located in the heart of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, it’s easy to spot this building that boasts beatiful views from the 27th floor observation deck.  The Top of the World also serves as touching memorial to victims of the 9/11 attacks, spotlighting victims that perished in the attacks that originated from Maryland.  The memorials are very well done.

Once inside the building, the observation deck allows you to see above Baltimore, as well as learn about some of the history associated with the area.  Movies that have been filmed here, famous people that hail from the state, as well as some other interesting facts.  It’s a visit that is very enjoyable and informative!
