Mother’s Day in the Chesapeake Bay region oftentimes presents weather with glorious temperatures that hover in the mid-70s and air that is devoid of all the humidity normally seen during the months of July and August. Read on for a few ideas on how to enjoy a beautiful Mother’s Day in Annapolis, MD!
Located on the western banks of Chesapeake Bay, Annapolis is close to both historic cities of Washington D.C. and Baltimore, but it remains proud of its own place in American history. In that case, take mom on a historic tour to get a glimpse of Colonial America with one of the many guided tour companies around town. Or you can embark on a self-guided tour that will transport mom back to the 18th century with a trip to archaic homes such as the William Paca House built in 1765, the Chase Lloyd House constructed in 1769 and the majestic Maryland State House still in use since 1772. It’s definitely one of the best ways to spend Mother’s Day in Annapolis, MD!
Mother’s Day Brunch
After a trip through Revolutionary America, the traditional Mother’s Day brunch is usually on the itinerary, and Annapolis is eager to please with its many restaurants that prepare special menus for mom. In downtown Annapolis, the Iron Rooster is an excellent option for its eclectic menu and creative combination of cocktails. Across Annapolis Harbor in the neighborhood of Eastport, O’Learys Seafood Restaurant provides elegant white tablecloth service in an old-school atmosphere alongside spectacular waterfront views. If a brunch sailing on the water sounds more like mom’s cup of tea, there are several charter companies that offer excursions around Chesapeake Bay. The Schooner Woodwind is a popular sailing company that has several types of tours depending on price, time and distance. Whatever option you choose, don’t forget to try the local cuisine which includes plenty of seafood and of course, those ubiquitous Maryland blue crabs.
