Things to Do
- See the Carroll Museum and Phoenix Shot Tower - the tower was the tallest building in the United States when it was first built in 1828. A shot tower was used to make shots - firearms in the old days before the bullets. Unfortunately, you can't go inside the tower and no guided tours are offered so best to just take photos outside.
- Take a water taxi to Fort McHenry or some of their other offerings - a great way to see Fell's Point from the water or just for scenic views of nearby towns.
- Dine at the quaint restaurants that are dotted within the area - you'll find some that are facing the water, making for a great ambiance
- Shop at the local shops for unique goods.
- Walk around Thames Street Park.
