MVB Travel Series - Annapolis
August 30, 2022
Maryland’s capital, Annapolis, is packed with history and charm and is the ultimate day trip. Many of its main attractions, including shops, restaurants, and galleries, are within walking distance of downtown. If you want to escape the downtown crowd, the William Paca House and Garden is a tranquil setting just a few blocks from the water. Wondering where all the men and women in white came from? Tour the U.S. Naval Academy and see the campus where some of the nation’s brightest young minds receive an education while serving our country. If you are looking to spend some time enjoying the outdoors, Sandy Point State Park offers beaches, picnic areas, hiking trails, fishing, boating, and more on the Chesapeake. The Baltimore & Annapolis (B&A) Trail runs from Annapolis to Glen Burnie and is ideal for bicyclists, runners, and walkers. If you want to take a boat ride, head over to the dock behind the Annapolis Maritime Museum and take a trip to the Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse and learn how lighthouse keepers lived when it was built in 1875. At the end of the day, you are guaranteed to see plenty of history and beautiful views of the Chesapeake Bay!
