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.
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.
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!
