Soak in deep garden tubs as long as you want in a spa-like bathroom, watch the television shows you want to watch, and sit in the garden with a glass of wine as you watch the sunset over historic Annapolis. This solo journey is the one your soul has been waiting for and you never even knew!
Adventures, Party of One
Some of the best adventures you have in life take place with no other company, and your journey to Annapolis is no exception. After a tough first half of the year, you deserve to spoil yourself with a visit to one of the many day spas in the area. Even Keel Wellness Spa, 31 Old Solomons Island Road #101, is open for massages once more and provides a few hours of peaceful retreat for everyone who walks in their doors. Ethos of Annapolis is another day spa we love, located at 43 Lafayette Avenue and offering a full selection of spa services such as facials, massage, and light therapy, and promising to leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed, and rejuvenated.
After spoiling, if you have the energy to explore, the history of Annapolis makes for interesting scrutiny. The Old Treasury Building could be the highlight of your solo adventures! Located at State Circle, this modest brick structure was built in 1735 before our nation became independent and has witnessed more than a little unrest during its three centuries of existence.
As you learn how enjoyable solo traveling can be, perhaps its time to take a breather and maybe ponder your blessings with a visit to St. Anne’s Episcopal Church, located at 199 Duke of Gloucester Street. Founded in 1692 it is one of the original parishes created just a few decades after the pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock.
The Ultimate Test
One of the biggest “tests” when it comes to traveling by yourself is learning to be comfortable asking for a table for one. Felling uncomfortable and not knowing what to do with yourself when not sharing a meal with someone else can be off-putting, leading many travelers to stick to carry-out when it comes time to eat. And although the new normal has transformed many traditional dine-in restaurants into carry-out spaces, the historic ambience of local restaurants is something you should not miss seeing! The Federal House Bar & Grille, built in the 1830s, for example, offers take-out which is excellent, but then you might miss out on the gorgeous checkerboard floors and fabulous live music offered on weekends and late in the night. Middleton Tavern is another historic spot. It has been in place since 1747 and it is rumored that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin may have once sat right where you are sipping your beer; you can’t get more fascinating than this!
What Do Solo Travelers Do During Their Stay in Annapolis?
Everything you would do as a group can be done by yourself. Just because you’re alone, doesn’t mean you will be lonely! Enjoy a table for one at Miss Shirley’s, a quiet walk along the bay, or an evening of live theater at the Compass Rose Theater on Forest Drive. Annapolis is a town meant to be explored and appreciated by everyone, no matter how many are in your party, and our At Home Annapolis solo escapes are designed to spoil.
