Here’s a roundup of some of the great activities going on in Annapolis this winter:
- Christmas shopping – We have over 80 boutiques and specialty shops, many with local craftsmen featured. Some of our faves: Local by Design, Annapolis Pottery, Vignette, Lat Long… and soooo many more
- Don’t miss “Midnight Madness” on the Thursday nights before Christmas – strolling musicians and carolers, bargains, hot drinks and great atmosphere!
- New Year’s Eve – fireworks! Make a weekend of it and go for a walk around town, Greenbury point, Quiet Waters park, Waterworks & Bacon Ridge trails, or just walk across the street to the US Naval Academy
- The Military Bowl is played Monday December 27, and features teams from the ACC and AAC conferences, the Budweiser Clydesdales and a salute to our Armed Forces
- Take a guided tour – or get out on the water, do a cart tour or ghost tour/ pub crawl – so many choices . Check with Watermark, Historic Annapolis or Tours and Crawls
- Museums & Historic Homes – Our fave is Preble Hall, the US Naval Academy museum . Even better tie in a walking tour of the US Naval Academy. Also try Hammond Harwood House (great stories & artifacts), Paca House (huge house & gardens, signer of Declaration of Independence), Banneker Museum (African American focus, current exhibition “Freedom Bound” is excellent) and the Maryland State House (George Washington resigned his commission of commander of Continental Army here in 1783)
