As we get deeper into the heat of summer, one of our favorite holidays makes an appearance, and after the way the first half of this year has gone, we bet you’re looking forward to celebrating our nation’s birthday as much as we are! We all want to get out there and play, and as travel restrictions are lessening, if your journey brings you to Annapolis this 4th of July, it’s all the better! This guide to all the fun you can have in our historic city is just one of the many ways we thank you for choosing At Home Annapolis for your holiday hideaway!
Pancakes for Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and starting out with sweet and fluffy pancakes, perhaps enhanced with strawberries and blueberries for a patriotic treat, is our favorite way to celebrate a lazy day off! Miss Shirley’s Café is a local tradition where you can order the pancakes to take home, but if you are in the mood, there’s nothing like homemade! Whip up a batch in the fully equipped kitchen of your rental property using the aforementioned berries and a dab of whip cream and your children will love you forever!
Celebrate 4th Of July Where It All Began
As we acknowledge the birthday of our nation, what you may not know is that Annapolis is home to four of the original signers of the Declaration of Independence, making it only fitting that you celebrate with a visit to their homes! The William Paca House, the Chase Lloyd House, the Peggy Stewart House, and the Charles Carroll House once housed our forefathers and are exciting and beautiful places to tour, and even though the Peggy Stewart House is not open to the public, just strolling by can cause some powerful feelings.
No Organized Fireworks? No Problem!
Unfortunately, our annual 4th of July fireworks show has been cancelled due to the pandemic, but chances are you won’t even miss them! Spend part of the day enjoying the charms of Chesapeake Bay and then head back to your holiday homestead to frolic, have fun, and spend more time with family! Many of our larger properties come with private pools, keeping you cool on the hottest days of the year, and because even more of our properties come equipped with a barbecue grill, you can celebrate with an all-American meal of hot dogs and hamburgers! Whip up a batch of red, white & boozy margaritas, made with ice, silver tequila, triple sec, grenadine, and blue curacao, and your day will be complete!
