Annapolis is within easy reach of the many attractions of Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, the largest city in Maryland. Annapolis is also the gateway to the Chesapeake Bay and the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Route 50 passes by Annapolis, over the architectural masterpiece of the 4.3 mile long Chesapeake Bay Bridge, and on through the historic towns of Easton and Cambridge, before ending near the boardwalk in Ocean City, the largest resort in the Mid-Atlantic.

Maryland is a small state, (the 42nd biggest in the Union), so that no part of it is more than a day trip from Annapolis, which lies near the center of the state. While Annapolis is close to major metropolitan areas, it is well suited as a base for enjoying the outdoor activities found throughout the state. In Annapolis itself, you can charter a sailboat or take a ferry across the bay or enjoy a leisurely stroll at Quiet Waters Park. Maryland is full of opportunities of enjoying the outdoors by hiking, biking, birding, kayaking, horseback riding, fossil hunting and even skiing at Wisp mountain in Western Maryland.

Annapolis, the capital of Maryland, is 350 years young. It is a vibrant city, proud of its charming colonial heritage, while offering visitors the latest in dining, accommodations, shopping and entertainment.

Annapolis is home to the United States Naval Academy and St. John’s College, a liberal arts college with a history going back to 1696. Annapolis is well known as a center of sailing and boating in the Mid-Atlantic. Our neighborhood of Eastport, across the bridge from downtown Annapolis, retains much of its old maritime character, showcased at the Annapolis Maritime Museum.

Annapolis has some of the finest examples of colonial homes, including the Hammond-Harwood House and the Charles Carroll House. We have a rich African-American history. We honor those who arrived as slaves, including Alex Haley’s ancestor, Kunta Kinte, at the Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation Memorial and the heritage of the Maryland African American community at the Banneker-Douglass Museum.
