"Mt. Vernon Square" Top 5 Page for this destination Mount Vernon Tip by ellielou
Mount Vernon, Baltimore: 18 reviews and 38 photos
Probably one of the most beautiful squares in the U.S., at least the most beautiful one that I've seen.
The Washington Monument stands right in the center. See John Water's movie "Pecker," if you want to see just how suggestive the monument really is. But, seriously, this was the first Washington monument, predating the one more famous one about 40 miles south in Washington, DC.
Mt. Vernon is the cultural hub of the city. The square also includes the Peabody Institute, the famous music school, with its library filled with wrought iron balconies.
Also on the square, is the Walters Art Museum, with its fine collection of Asian art, and antiquities.
There are also numerous galleries and restaurants in the area. (Some of which are mentioned in the restaurant section.)
Address: N. Charles Street
Directions: North on Charles Street, about 1 mile from the harbor.
