All Aboard: Experiencing Ft McHenry Like Never Before

On the same waters in Baltimore Harbor from where Francis Scott Key saw the "bombs bursting in air" and the "rockets red glare" and from where he wrote the words to the Star-Spangled Banner, visitors to Ft McHenry for the first time will now be able to experience a boat tour like never before.

"Francis Scott Key was on the water, the story of the National Anthem is a water-born story," National Park Service Ranger and Fort McHenry Chief of Interpretation Vince Vaise told WBAL's Scott Wykoff aboard the boat tour on Baltimore Harbor looking out over the Fort.

The new "Fort McHenry Boat Tour: A Star-Spangled Experience," a 35 to 45 minute narrated tour, will set sail from the Ft McHenry Pier every weekend now through September 15 with seven tours departing on the hour starting at 10:00am.
