Every season is the perfect season for a getaway to Annapolis, but we have to admit that fall holds a special place in our hearts. Offering cool days after a summer of heat and humidity, trees that are ablaze with all our favorite colors, and the scent of fireplaces being used for the first time since the spring wafting through the air, there is no downside to fall in Annapolis, with one exception: Eventually, the season has to end! This guide to our favorite fall activities in our favorite town on the bay will help make your autumn adventures memorable ones.
Savor the Flavors of Fall With These Activities in Annapolis
Yes, fall is known as the season of pumpkin spice, but a sip of hot cocoa from the Annapolis Ice Cream Company will forever change that in your mind! Rich, thick, and creamy and also voted “The best hot chocolate in Annapolis,” every sip will be your favorite, warming you from the inside out. And because outside is where you will want to be during this season of wonder, why not take a cup to go and walk out to City Dock? Watching the boats come and go on the sometimes stormy, most often placid waters of Chesapeake Bay against a backdrop of trees offering canopies of fire is a time-honored fall tradition that should definitely be added to your itinerary of activities in Annapolis.
