Whether you are traveling solo, as a couple, with friends, or with the kids, Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay can fill the niche. Want a quick lay of the land? Head to City Dock in Annapolis. It's your gateway to a host of sailing and cruising possibilities. Want to captain your own boat? Our award-winning sailing and powerboat schools can put you at the helm. For a demonstration from the pros, visit the U.S. Naval Academy, or get a waterman's take on the Chesapeake Bay at the Annapolis Maritime Museum.

No visit to Annapolis is complete without a walking tour. Tour guides in Colonial attire will fill you in on the gossip of the ages as you wind your way along the brick-lined streets of the Historic District. Up for a good scare? Try our ghost tours. Hungry? Indulge your appetite and your intellect with a food and history tour. Looking for adventure? Trail blaze on a Segway, or make your way around the city on a climate-controlled trolley tour. Your guide will fill you in on key attractions including the Maryland State House, Banneker-Douglass Museum, and the homes of Maryland's signers of the Declaration of Independence.

A new exhibit at Historic London Town and Gardens recounts the history of the Annapolis countryside. While you're there, check out the largest ongoing archaeological dig in Maryland. The nearby Captain Avery Museum in Shady Side, the Galesville Heritage Museum, and the Deale Area Historical Society have their own stories to tell about the life and times of farmers and watermen of years gone by. Annapolis Baltimore is an area of contrasts. Home to Arundel Mills Mall and its new Maryland Live! Casino, Annapolis Baltimore is our nation's cyber security capital and home to one of the fastest growing airports in the nation, BWI Thurgood Marshall.
