Maryland’s Fort McHenry is rich in history, with a major claim to fame. The Star-Spangled Banner was actually inspired by the fort. During the Battle of Baltimore in 1814 (part of the War of 1812), our troops valiantly defended it, and Francis Scott Key penned the ode to this great country that we still sing so proudly today. Beyond its musical connection, there’s a lot to love — and learn about — at this prominent landmark, which was named for Secretary of War James McHenry. You certainly don’t need to be a history buff to appreciate everything that the fort has to offer.

The nature of my visits often differ, but one thing remains the same: I never want to leave.

Below we have compiled our Quick Guide to Annapolis to help you plan your trip.
When you think of the schools that make up the Ivy League, chances are it’s not too much of a stretch to imagine the campuses are beautiful. And most of them are, when you close your eyes and imagine an Ivy League campus you probably expect to see a green quad surrounded by trees and classical style buildings.
Most of the Ivy’s are found in larger cities throughout the Northeast, but since they are well over a hundred years old, these schools have the luxury to have both large and green plots of land. The good news is these open and walkable campuses are really nice spots to visit, many also have museums and libraries on campus you can visit as well.
