The secret to enjoying the best holidays is well known by constant travelers. To truly appreciate the traditions and beauty of the holidays you love most, you must getaway! Traveling on a holiday automatically takes the stress and work away, leaving only the good memories and happy times—even on Halloween. Traditionally, this is not a traveling holiday, but it does happen to be when our little city on the bay shines. The leaves are still changing, the cool air has blown away the humidity of late summer, and the charm of historic buildings seems to deepen. And because you will want the best during your stay in Annapolis, choosing At Home Annapolis for your Annapolis places to stay will ensure this Halloween is a spooktacular one!
No Ghosts or Goblins Here
From the first moment you set your bags down on floors of wood, tile, or carpeted floors until it’s time to pack them up and leave, our Halloween Maryland vacation rentals will be filled with comfort, style, and adventure! Open the windows and let the cool and crisp Chesapeake air in as you whip together a Toxic Swamp Halloween Smoothie created from yogurt, banana, and spinach in the fully equipped kitchen. When the sun drops from the sky and the dark of night brings an extra chill to the air, those who have rented one of our fireplace homes will appreciate the warmth and romance a roaring fire brings to the cheerfully stylish living room, and watching “It’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” on the state of the art televisions we provide will make your evening complete. Sleep late, huddled together in a cocoon of warmth in soft beds, take an extra long and hot shower in the morning as you prepare for Halloween adventures, or simply sit on the patio at sunset, enjoying a beverage and Mother Nature’s most spectacular show. There may be no ghosts and goblins in our Maryland vacation rentals, but this Halloween is guaranteed to be your most memorable ever!
Take the Fun Outside
Fall in Annapolis offers close to perfect weather conditions, and even if you are staying home for the evening, you can head outside for a night of fun under the harvest moon! Many of our homes offer large back decks; pull up a chair, turn off the outside lights, and take turns telling your favorite ghost stories. Families with younger children can stick with the old classics (the story about the escaped convict with a hook is one of our favorites!), but we are betting your teens can come up with stories that will give you nightmares! Some of our homes can be found on the bay and come with their own private dock. The creaking of the wood, the splashing of the water against the shore, and if you are lucky, the screech of an owl flying overhead can add to the goosebumps rapidly appearing on your arms. A fire in the fire pit (if your property offers one), a glass of wine, and some chocolate from the Halloween bags are the only other things you will need to make this Halloween a memorable one!
All Treats, No Tricks in These Annapolis Places to Stay
Trick or treating is of utmost importance to the younger travelers in your group, and just because you aren’t home, it doesn’t mean they have to skip their favorite adventure! Store to Store Treating is a popular and safe activity, taking place at Annapolis Harbour Center’s Hallowfest, and many churches in the area offer their own Trunk or Treating events.
Getaway During Your Getaway
Of course, as fun and beautiful as it is in Annapolis, if you have rented a car for this trip, there is no need to spend your entire vacation in town! Travel to the Y Worry Farm at 1501 Rossback Road in nearby Davidsonville and check out their pumpkin patch with the kids. Take a road trip to Baltimore and compare the ghost tours offered by Baltimore Ghost Tours to the exciting and spooky one found right here in town. Or take a short jaunt to really nearby Crownsville and decide for yourself if their Cornstalkers Trail of Terror is as frightening as they suggest! Located at 11765 St. Linus Drive, this spooky spot is rated 4.5 jack-o-lanterns out of 5 and is rumored to be the scariest “haunted house” in all of Maryland, so it is not recommended for children under the age of 13!
And remember, no matter how frightening the trail of terror is, you will be heading back to your At Home Annapolis holiday escape for a night of comfort and luxury. No nightmares are allowed in our homes, so be sure to enjoy every minute of your chilling Maryland adventures during your once in a lifetime Halloween journey to Annapolis. This could become a new family tradition!
