How to Enjoy a Thanksgiving 2020 Getaway to Annapolis

Although our city on the bay is located over 400 miles away from where the first Thanksgiving was held, celebrating your 2020 Thanksgiving in a place that played such an integral part in the early days of our nation will bring a patriotic tear to your eyes! When you choose one of our At Home Annapolis holiday homes in which to stay, this uniquely American celebration gets even better, as you enjoy the comfort that makes our homes special places that draw visitors from all over the world.

Families Love Us

This year has been a strange one, but the turmoil we have faced has succeeded in bringing our families closer together than ever before, something that is well worth celebrating. Offering fully equipped kitchens, creating a feast to be enjoyed is a simple matter made even simpler when your teenagers join in! Singing along to the Christmas carols playing in the background, searching the net for new ways to make your favorite dishes, and sharing secrets and laughter is a blessing that deserves to be at the top of your list. Living areas are where your family will gather throughout the day, play games, watch television (The Thanksgiving Parade is one of our favorite traditions!), or taking a refreshing nap after too much turkey makes you feel sleepy. When night falls, this special getaway offers multiple options. Soak in a refreshing hot tub, head out to the shops for a night of Black Friday excitement, or read the latest blockbuster in bed until your eyelids grow heavy and the Sandman demands you fall into a deep and dreamless sleep.

Change Is in the Air

The pandemic changed the way our world moves today, but if your chief cook and bottlewasher feels the need for a vacation from cooking chores, you can be her hero with a trip to the local Sam’s Club! Located at 2100 Generals Highway, their pre-cooked turkey is a delicious option for enjoying your Thanksgiving getaway to the fullest!

We Count You Among Our Blessings

In tough times and in good, you, our treasured guests, have given us so much for which to be thankful! Reserve your At Home Annapolis holiday home today and feel at home in spaces that pamper and spoil. Happy Thanksgiving!

Spring Activities to Enjoy in Annapolis

Are you looking for an exciting and culturally immersive springtime getaway on the East Coast? The Chesapeake harbor town of Annapolis has much to offer when it comes to entertainment and activities to enjoy in Annapolis, and spring is an especially great time to visit! Whether you’re looking for interesting historical attractions, spring festivals, or to enjoy the great outdoors, you’re sure to love a trip to Annapolis, Maryland.

Outdoor Adventures

With temperatures ranging from the mid-40s to the mid-70s, spring is a great time to be outdoors in Annapolis. Bring or rent a bike and take to the trails in the area, or just take a relaxing walk. The Baltimore and Annapolis Trail runs the historic 13.3-mile route of the Annapolis and Baltimore Short Line and takes you on a winding route through charming parks and neighborhoods. If you want to see some spring blooms, check out the shorter 3.1-mile Greenbury Point Trail and the nearby nature center. In springtime it will be filled with bright and colorful wildflowers!

Get on the Water

Let’s not forget, with our proximity to the water, a boat is the perfect way to explore the areas around Annapolis! If you’re looking to self-paddle, you can easily rent kayaks or canoes at many of our local outfitters. Or if you want a little more power, you can take out a set of jet skis or Wave Runners for an afternoon! But if you’re looking for a more inclusive experience, look into hiring a sailboat – with a captain – for a day! What could be better than a sailboat picnic in the middle of the Chesapeake? Make it extra special and take along a bottle of wine from a local vineyard, like Great Frogs Winery or The Vineyards at Dodon.

Special Events

Speaking of local vineyards, check out some of the events listed on the spring calendars around here. Great Frogs has a Hoppy Spring Happy Hour event with brick oven pizzas and live folk music, as well as pasta making classes on weekends following the happy hour. Other notable events in the area include the 10th Annual Oyster Roast and Sock Burning at the Annapolis Maritime Museum. The festival celebrates the arrival of the boating season, as well as the spring equinox, with literal sock burning, an oyster shucking contest, live music, and of course, all the oysters you can eat. The end of March also brings the 6th year of the Annapolis Film Festival, featuring over 70 films, Q&A sessions, and amazing parties. April brings with it even more fun, with the Maryland Chicken Wing Festival, Maryland Avenue Earth Day Fest, and the Spring Sailboat Show!
