What Makes an Annapolis Getaway Great for the Holidays?

Annapolis is the pride and joy of the Chesapeake Bay, and the greatest holiday gift you could give yourself and your family is to come and visit us here. This city is regarded as the sailing capital of the world, but the fun doesn’t end with sailing. Buckle up for the holiday of a lifetime when you go on an Annapolis getaway!

Fun for Every Season

Annapolis is a great destination no matter what time of year you’re planning to visit. Springtime is great for seeing the flowers bloom and getting into the great outdoors. In the summer months, you’ll get to enjoy warm temperatures and the joys of sailing. In the fall, bask in the glory of the changing seasons as our foliage turns red, yellow and gold. By November the weather turns colder, and you’ll get to enjoy the twinkling lights, local holiday events, and the magic of Annapolis in the throes of its wonderful winter season.

See All the Sights During Your Annapolis Getaway

There is never a shortage of things to enjoy in and around the city. Hop on a trolley for a tour of the city and all its shining lights from the people who know it best. Take a walk down Main Street, get a glimpse of colonial life at the William Paca House, and go for a peaceful stroll along Ego Alley—the colloquial name for the place in city dock where all the most beautiful boats can be found. When the evening hits, foxtrot, tango, dance the swing at the Davidson Dance Club!

The Wonders of the Chesapeake

The best way to spend a holiday is to do something unforgettable that you’ve never done before. The Chesapeake Bay and Severn River provide endless opportunities for unique experiences. Catch a ride on a boat and sail through the bay with the experts, visit the Naval Academy Museum, or simply dine at one of our favorite waterside cafes, like Pusser’s Caribbean Grille, or Sam’s On the Waterfront. Surprise the family with tickets to shows at the Ballet Theatre of Maryland and Annapolis Shakespeare Company. Every year November through January 1st you can enjoy Lights on the Bay, a drive-thru light show held at Sandy Point State Park, with the evening waters as your backdrop.
