Annapolis/Maryland Tourism

Annapolis and Anne Arundel County boasts a rich maritime heritage mingled with abundant and spectacular parks, fabulous museums and historic sites, chic specialty shops, and other irresistible attractions. Located on the banks of the Severn River, which flows into the Chesapeake Bay, Annapolis is “America’s Sailing Capital.” It’s also home for the U.S. Naval Academy. 

Annapolis is Maryland’s state capital. It has more 18th century buildings still in use than in any other U.S. city. Be sure to walk along the red-brick streets near City Dock. Visit a local pub. Stop by a gallery. You’ll find everything from maritime antiques to designer clothing to magnificent works of art. Or, take advantage of the plentiful choices for recreation on the bay, including boating and fishing. Whether you wander the coast line of the Chesapeake Bay or stay inland, there are plenty of activities
