Annapolis Harbor is one part of the city you won’t want to miss,and City Dock is the right place that gives you a good look at the harbor. As the weather improves,people flock to the City Dock to enjoy a meal, have ice cream, and take in the views. You can spend hours watching the boats make their way in and out of the harbor.
US Naval Academy
This must-visit attraction is the pride and joy of the city. Even children will enjoy the guided tours offered here. The Academy has various exhibits that give you an intimate look into the life on board naval vessels. Or if you prefer you can stroll around the campus on your own. The architecture is simply stunning. The visitor’s center will help you plan your tour and choose where you’d like to go and what to see.
Any guide to Annapolis will tell you that there are two ways to discover the heart of Annapolis: either take the trolley to explore the alleys and backstreets of this historic city or take a water taxi. The water taxi is only available between May and Labor Day and will take you from downtown to Eastport in one fun journey without setting foot on dry land.
Who wouldn’t like to be a swashbuckling pirate even for a short while? Even grownups won’t mind donning a costume and strutting around on deck pretending to be Captain Jack Sparrow. If that’s your adventure, head over to the Chesapeake Bay. There you’ll find a ship waiting for you. After putting on the costume and getting your gear,you’ll be told about the buried treasures. Water and cannon displays will keep the experience lively and exciting. Children in particular will enjoy the realistic atmosphere where make-believe blends with the immaculate setting. We think the whole experience is a lot more fun than life aboard a real pirate ship!
