As vacation season rolls around every six months or so, families all over the world begin to deal with the age-old question: Where do we want to go this year? The options are endless, from European vacations to trips to Disneyland, or our personal favorite, a visit to where most of our country’s history began, right here in Annapolis, Maryland! If Annapolis hasn’t been on your radar for a vacation destination, we think it will be after you read about these top reasons to visit Annapolis MD.
Although Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts is where our country’s history began, and Washington D.C. is where the most powerful men became our leaders, Annapolis could be considered the heart of America—especially when you consider that our city is the birthplace of the US Navel Academy and many of its denizens have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Today, you can tour the Naval Academy, visit the home of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and visit museums, historic homes, and monuments dedicated to preserving not just the history of Annapolis, but the history of America itself. Things to do around Annapolis has something for everyone!
We’ve Got Crabs
And boy, are they tasty! Maryland crabs are known the world over for being sweet, tasty treats, and when you visit, you’re going to want to include them in as many meals as you possibly can!
