All Poe fans have to come here, simply because his aunt and cousin/wife lived here. He also lived here for a short while, and many years later, died in the Baltimore area as well. I really recommend Westminster churchyard where he and his wife are buried; if you can, take the tour that's offered, includes the catacombs under the church. Ironically, the Poe museum in Philadelphia is bigger and nicer, although he only lived there for a few months.
