About Downtown Annapolis, Maryland

Walk along the old brick sidewalks much as George Washington or Thomas Jefferson did in the days when Annapolis was the capital of the United States. Annapolis is the home of the United States Naval Academy, founded in 1845, and of St. John’s College, the third oldest institution of higher learning in the United States.

Stroll along with your partner along our waterfront and enjoy the charm of our City Dock. Watch the boats as they cruise our famous Ego Alley. Sit on the seawall and watch the sailboat races as they return to the harbor and see why Annapolis is “America’s Sailing Capital.” Enjoy the many friendly and unique shops, restaurants, activities and scenery that downtown Annapolis has to offer.

Whether you are coming from Baltimore, Washington DC, or flying to stay here, you will find the best dates here!
