If you live anywhere in the mid-Atlantic area you, too, have been experiencing the dog days of summer for the past 2 weeks with temperatures in the 90’s and heat indices into the 100’s. All you want to do is stay cool and keep hoping that the temperature will be at least a bit cooler tomorrow. Here in Annapolis the sentiment abounds. But, the great thing about the Historic District area of Annapolis is that it is right next to the Chesapeake Bay, Severn River and Spa Creek and there are numerous options for air conditioned spots to move in and out of as you wander around town.
Once you are here in town (and if you are at Flag House Inn having parked your car here on site) you don’t have to get in and out of a sweltering car to get from place to place. A two minute walk from our front door and you can be sitting by the waterfront enjoying the cooling breezes even in the warmest weather. While there you can either sip an iced cold coffee, tea, lemonade or enjoy an ice cream to cool you inside while the breezes cool outside.
Need to seek inside shelter during the heat of the day? Visit the Banneker-Douglas, Historic Annapolis Foundation or the Annapolis Maritime museums for a cooled as well as “cool” environment where you can learn about the history surrounding our beautiful city.
Want to get closer to the water? Hop on one of the boat rides offered by either Watermark Cruises or the Schooner Woodwind for a cruise on the water lasting as little as 45 minutes and as long as 3 hours of uninterrupted beauty cruising the waterways in and around Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay.
More cooling needed than stop into any one of the dozens of eateries around Dock and Main streets, Church and State circles, Maryland Avenue and along Severn Avenue in Eastport for great food and the hospitality of Annapolis.
When cabin fever strikes think of coming to Annapolis for a getaway with lots of options to help you cool down.
