Things To Do in Annapolis & Anne Arundel County


If you’re in the mood to get away from it all, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you’re looking for the adrenaline rush of crossing the finish line first in our Wednesday Night Sailboat Races, the cool serenity of an 8-acre woodland garden, or the easy access to Baltimore and Washington, DC, we deliver. A destination of contrasts, our three regions have distinct, appealing personalities.

Maryland’s capital city greets you with open arms and a host of possibilities. A Museum without Walls, Annapolis is a lively, upbeat, contemporary city where four centuries of architecture embrace 21st-century living. Here all roads lead to the water and a nautical heritage intrinsically linked to the Chesapeake Bay.

While Annapolis is world-renowned as a sailing destination, the Annapolis countryside boasts hundreds of miles of Chesapeake Bay shoreline ebbing and flowing to the rhythm of the tides and nearby nautical villages. Visit Historic London Town and Gardens, a colonially port city turned interpretive village and native garden along the South River.  

Home to BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, the BWI-Arundel Mills region is the perfect home base for exploring Washington, DC, and Baltimore. Here, you can peek behind the curtain into the world of secret codes at the National Security Agency’s National Cryptologic Museum. The nearby Arundel Mills Mall is Maryland’s largest outlet and value retail shopping destination. Right next door, Live! Casino & Hotel Maryland is one of the largest commercial casinos in the country.
