With all the craziness that has taken place this year, you may be surprised to realize that summer is almost over and that Labor Day, the last official holiday of the season, is just weeks away! Have you made any plans yet? If you’re like the rest of the world, you’ve been making plans to hit the ground running as soon as travel restrictions were lifted, and if your journey has your feet pointed in the direction of Annapolis, this guide to social distance fun you can have in our historic and scenic city on the bay will help make this vacation everything you always dreamed it could be!
The Urge to Be Outdoors
There hasn’t been that much good news over the last few months, as we have stayed cooped up in our houses watching the world change before our eyes, but things are getting better, and your visit to Annapolis is one such example. Social distancing is still a thing, though, but that’s ok; you’ll want to spend as much time outside as possible and hiking along one of the many trails in the area is one of our favorite ways of doing so! Spending your hours watching wildlife as you walk along the trails is a treat well deserved, and it can be accomplished with a visit to Quiet Waters Park, Broad Creek Park, or the poetically beautiful Poet’s Nature Trail which meanders alongside the waters of the bay.
More Fun on the Water
While a hike along the bay is always a special treat, being on the water itself will bring you even more joy! Rent a canoe or kayak from Annapolis Canoe and Kayak and while away the hours paddling across the waters, feeling bay breezes kiss your cheeks and reveling in the feeling that at this moment in time, the world is your oyster. Bring a pole and drop a line, catching dinner for the night, or if the mood strikes, simply lying back and watching the clouds move in the sky above your head. Labor Day is the one day of the year where laboring is NOT mandatory, so enjoy every second of this lazy and peaceful getaway by doing absolutely nothing!
Built to Enjoy
Of course, staying home in one of our At Home Annapolis vacation escapes could very well be the brightest spot in your luminous vacation experience. Sleep in late, and if you rented bayfront lodging, a nap in the very comfortable lawn chairs is always a much-needed treat! Our properties can be your very luxurious desert island, shared only with family. Contact us to reserve your stay today.
