Climb our Washington Monument

Where: 699 N. Charles St.

When: 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesdays-Sundays; noon-8 p.m. first Thursdays.

Why: Because it is there. (Why else do people climb to great heights?) Superb views of City College, City Hall and all of downtown. But you'll have to earn it. The trip is 228 steps up a spiral staircase. On the first Thursday of each month (next one is tonight), visitors can walk onto and around the balcony at the top. Beware -- the railing is low.

Information: Call 410-396-1049. A walk to the top costs $1. -- Annie Linskey
