Slow Down and Experience the Annapolis Countryside

Video of family fun activities in Annapolis Countryside.

Cross over the South River Bridge from downtown Annapolis and, almost immediately, things start to feel different. The traffic dwindles, the pace slows, and you soon find yourself in the beautiful, pristine Annapolis Countryside, where much of what you'll witness appears as if time has stood still for hundreds of years. But even as you glimpse horses grazing on farmland and quaint 19th century bungalows with hammocks hanging from porches, within minutes you can arrive at a luxurious, modern, eco-friendly waterfront resort.

To experience this diverse but wholly relaxing destination, plan on spending a day or more in the Annapolis Countryside. Take the scenic back roads. You'll meander near rivers winding through fertile farmland. Discover the area's history and heritage sites that tell the stories of the area's forebears. Visit small maritime villages that look like time forgot. Dine in their restaurants, featuring fresh local seafood, produce, and meats. For the true flavor of the place, come during a festival or local event. Meet the folks who live and work here-some still make a living off the land and the water. Stay overnight. Choose from a state-of-the-art, eco-friendly resort and marina. Down the road, yet another resort provides visitors the best of both worlds: All the modern amenities, in old-fashioned surroundings. Find it here.
