Annapolis

Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay is a mecca for individuals with a passion for things to do on the water. Sailing schools, regattas, and weeknight races provide lovers of all things water with a daily fill of waterfront magic. A host of Annapolis public cruises, private charters, kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boarding opportunities make it easy for kids of all ages to don their water wings and make like a local.

Surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay, four rivers and more than 400 miles of shoreline, we are proud of our maritime heritage. Spend a Sunday afternoon exploring the things to do in Deale, Shady Side, and Galesville, and you’ll discover just how much the rivers and Bay have shaped the lives of generations of farmers and watermen.

No visit to Annapolis is complete without a walking tour. Tour guides in Colonial attire will fill you in on the gossip of the ages as you wind your way along the brick-lined streets of the Historic District. Up for a good scare? Try our ghost tours. Hungry? Indulge your appetite and your intellect with a food and history tour. Looking for adventure? Trail blaze on a Segway, or make your way around the city on a \ climate-controlled trolley tour. Your guide will fill you in on key attractions including the Maryland State House, Banneker-Douglass Museum, and the homes of Maryland's signers of the Declaration of Independence.

The nearby Captain Avery Museum in Shady Side, the Galesville Heritage Museum, and the Deale Area Historical Society have their own stories to tell about the life and times of farmers and watermen of years gone by. Annapolis Baltimore is an area of contrasts. Home to Arundel Mills Mall and its new Maryland Live!
