There are sites of interest inside and out at this museum and working railway, but the main attraction here is the 20 mile round trip in their historic railcars. They take visitors on a scenic journey through tunnels, forest, mountain pathways, and more. Dogs are allowed on the grounds, and if they are very well mannered and calm, they may even ride the train for no additional fee. Dogs must be leashed and under their owner’s control at all times. However, please check ahead as dogs may not be allowed on some more crowded, special event times.

Top 200 Places: Baltimore’s Original Fell’s Point Ghost Tour

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

The Original Fell’s Point Ghost Walk Tour
P. O. Box 38140
Baltimore,
Maryland 21231
410-522-7400

Voted the #1 tour by locals, this outdoor tour weaves the history and lore of a city rich with mystery. It was the birth place of the dangerous Baltimore Clipper ships, was the privateer capital during the War of 1812, and a bohemian enclave during the 60′s. They tell fun and spooky stories about this shipbuilding town, the founder of the city, about bars, rough pirates, ladies of the night, typhoid outbreaks, Edgar Allen Poe, and the War of 1812. The tours are one hour long and less then a mile. Tours depart from Max’s Darthouse on Broadway, at 731 S. Broadway near the Fell’s Point Square in Baltimore, Maryland. The tours run rain or shine (unless dangerous weather), and leave promptly at 7 pm. Since tours sometimes sell out, usually in the fall-October especially, advance ticket purchases are recommended. Also, parking can be difficult on evenings and weekends, so they suggest the parking garage on Caroline Street as it is very close to the departure point. Well behaved, dogs on leash are allowed to join you on this walking tour, and please be prepared to clean up after your pet.
