Long Description:
The posted coordinates are for the exact location where the government worker sits and hands out information.

This was a very well-stocked and supplied information center. Most of the information centered around the Harbor and Baltimore and the supporting historical areas and Historic Districts as defined by the National Register of Historic Places. The worker was pretty knowledgeable and was able to inform me about Fells Point, Butchers Hill & Patterson Park--Highlandtown Historic Districts.

Maryland’s latest visitor data confirms that in 2006, the State welcomed more than 28 million visitors who generated more than $11.4 billion in visitor spending. That figure is up from $10.7 billion the previous calendar year. During 2006, the Maryland tourism industry generated more than $895 million in state and local taxes and provided more than 116,000 jobs to Maryland residents. (From the website mentioned below)
