Museums Can Be Fun
Generally, you say the word museum and the younger generation visibly and audibly will show their displeasure, but the Chesapeake Children’s Museum at 25 Silopanna Road will change their minds! Offering interactive activities guaranteed to grab your child’s interest and exhibits that include reptile displays and areas to play, parents will be happy to see how much fun their children are having while actually learning!

Sitting on the City Dock of the Bay
City Dock is the heart of Annapolis and this is where your child is guaranteed to have a blast.

Stay Home and Play
While there are still many things you can do with your children during your time in Annapolis, the most memorable moments may be the ones you enjoy in the comfort of your At Home Annapolis vacation escape. Unplug and concentrate on the fun you can have with board games that are supplied in many of our homes or tell ghost stories around the fire pit in others. Bake cookies together in our fully equipped kitchens or sit out on the balcony in one of our bayfront properties and watch the sunset as you talk about dreams and plans for the future with your teens.
