Annapolis and Anne Arundel County boasts a rich maritime heritage mingled with abundant and spectacular parks, fabulous museums and historic sites, chic specialty shops, and other irresistible attractions.

There’s no end to the enjoyable places to see and fun things to do here. Whether you wander the coast line of the Chesapeake Bay or stay inland, we have plenty of activities to keep you busy.

Located on the banks of the Severn River, which flows into the Chesapeake Bay, Annapolis is “America’s Sailing Capital.” It’s also home for the U.S. Naval Academy. Tours are available.

The town is Maryland’s state capital. It has more 18th century buildings still in use than in any other U.S. city. And, the Maryland State House has a rare wooden dome that’s easy to admire.

Be sure to walk along the red-brick streets near City Dock. Visit a local pub. Stop by a gallery. You’ll find everything from maritime antiques to designer clothing to magnificent works of art. Or, take advantage of the plentiful choices for recreation on the bay, including boating and fishing.
