Have you ever visited a city with a natural landscape so beautiful you could barely stand to stay inside? Wanting to spend every minute under the sky, exploring the flora and fauna that make the place special, often forgetting there are historical points of interest you wanted to explore or a vibrant nightlife you wanted to experience? A visit to Annapolis will be like that, and this guide to our natural attractions will convince you even further that the great outdoors is where you want to be—until it’s time to draw the covers over you and rest your head on the soft pillows of a bed; then there is no place you’d rather be than right here in one of our At Home Annapolis tranquil and serene bedrooms!
Ellen O. Moyer Nature Park at Back Creek
The quiet beauty of this park on the creek adds a serenity to a getaway often filled with the same hustle and bustle experienced at home. Located at 7228 Edgewood Road on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, the sweet sounds of a mama duck leading her ducklings across the waters of the creek can often be heard here, intermingling with the sounds made by the birds hanging out in the trees above. This is a prime birdwatching spot and the paths that wind their way through the park offer great opportunities for a hike through the mature trees that dot the landscape.
Of course, the oldest and most scenic natural attraction is the Chesapeake Bay, the body of water on which our city is built. Best known for its production of sweet seafood, it’s the main reason our state is famous for its crabs; the blue crabs that make their home in its watery depths are incredibly delicious, plentiful, and easy to catch! And although at one time we had come close to depleting the waters, creating a nearly dead bay, conservation efforts that continue to this day after beginning in the 1990s have helped the bay make a remarkable comeback. We know how important the Chesapeake Bay is to our community! FYI, you don’t have to travel far for this natural attraction; Annapolis City Dock is where we all go for a few minutes of communing with nature!
Some of the most beautiful natural attractions may be easily accessed from your At Home Annapolis rental retreat; just step onto the back porch and be amazed by a yard filled with mature trees, green grass, and colorful flowers, or better yet, views of the bay that will make you forget you have to go home at the end of your vacation!
