Explore the uniqueness that makes downtown Annapolis so appealing at this magical time of year.

Check out blogger Alexandra Cannady’s Midnight Madness experience with friends above.

Participating stores remain open until midnight, offering bargain hunters the chance to shop well in to the night for the holiday season. Midnight Madness runs December 2nd, 9th and 16th so get out and enjoy a night of fun in downtown Annapolis. Put on by the Downtown Annapolis Partnership, Midnight Madness is an Annapolis holiday favorite.

Looking to make this holiday season even more special? Consider booking a room and make it a magical holiday weekend with an historic pub crawl, a tour of the Maryland State House, and a glass of famous Irish Egg Nog from Galway Bay!
