Silversea Expedition Cruises To BALTIMORE

BALTIMORE

Baltimore celebrated its bicentennial in 1997. This event came in the wake of a restoration and revitalization program of the once-dormant waterfront area. It transformed this sector of the city into a bustling tourist attraction, with shopping centers, restaurants and the acclaimed National Aquarium. At the same time, the city became a model for urban redevelopment across the country. Beyond the Inner Harbor, historic neighborhoods such as Federal Hill, Mount Vernon and Fells Point boast splendid architecture, ranging from Colonial row houses to massive brownstones. View more

Many attractions are a short walk or ride from the Inner Harbor. The city is steeped in history. Some of it is reflected in the star-shaped Fort McHenry, famous for its role in the national anthem. It was here, on September 14, 1814 that Francis Scott Key saw the Star-Spangled Banner "by the dawn's early light". Babe Ruth, Edgar Allen Poe and H. L. Mencken are as synonymous with Baltimore as the Orioles and Ravens, both of which feature their own impressive stadiums. Visitors will find no lack of attractions. Alone the number of museums is mindbogling. As the birthplace of American railroading, the B&O Railroad Museum houses America's most complete collection of locomotives and railroad artifacts. Outside of the city, day trips allow for visiting the nation's capital or historic Annapolis with its collection of 18th- and 19th-century buildings and more than 50 pre-Revolutionary structures. Pier Information The ship is scheduled to dock at Dundalk Marine Terminal, about a 20-minute drive from the city, subject to traffic conditions. Taxis generally have to be called to the port.

You can find an eclectic selection of local interest items and art, clothing and jewelry. The Rouse Company's multilevel Gallery offers additional shopping opportunities. First-rate antiques can be found in the shops along Antique Row. At Fells Point, restored old homes house antiques shops, art galleries and boutiques. Most stores are open from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The local currency is the U.S. dollar. Cuisine The specialty is Chesapeake seafood and great steaks. Crab cakes, clams and mussels can be found on many menus. In recent years, ethnic food restaurants have also become very popular.

Escalators take visitors to the various levels and to the rooftop "rain forest." Please Note: Due to the Aquarium's popularity, you may find a queue at the ticket windows.

Magnificent Monuments of DC

Following a 1.5 hour transfer from the pier, arrive in Washington to see highlights that include the magnificent Lincoln Memorial anchoring the National Mall, an awe-inspiring tribute to this country's 16th President. The memorial is constructed of marble in the style of a Greek temple with 36 columns meant to represent the Union at the time of Lincoln's death. The Gettysburg Address and Lincoln's second inaugural address are carved into opposing walls of the memorial, serving as the location for Martin Luther King's memorable "I Have A Dream" speech in 1963.


The Korean War Veterans Memorial consists of a circular "Pool of Remembrance" in a grove of trees and a triangular "Field of Service" depicting a platoon of 19 larger-than-life American soldiers of different ethnic backgrounds on patrol. The memorial expresses both the enduring gratitude of the nation for those who fell in Korea and also proclaims a broader message about the willingness to serve in the defense of their country regardless of one's ethnicity. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is located on the grounds adjacent to the Lincoln Memorial, an impressive structure featuring the names, in chronological order, of more than 58,000 dead or missing servicemen and women inscribed in smooth sheets of granite.


From these several sights depart for 1600 Pennsylvania avenue, the "people's house." Enjoy a brief photo stop outside of the White House, the home of the President of the United States.
