Annapolis, Maryland Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Annapolis is the capital of Maryland, and has a small population of just over 36,000 residents. Claiming to have more 18th century buildings than any other city in the United States, Annapolis serves up lots of old world charm. In the late 1700s, Annapolis served as the nation's capital under George Washington.

Annapolis is home to the United State Naval Academy, the undergraduate college for the U.S. Navy. The Academy houses the U.S. Naval Museum, both of which draw thousands of tourists each year. Annapolis is a well known maritime community, housing the Annapolis Maritime Museum, the Navy Chapel and crypt of John Paul Jones at the Academy.

Annapolis is full of promise for recreation seekers, including bikers and runners, with the Baltimore-Annapolis Trail running for 13.3 miles from Glen Burnie to Annapolis. Sandy Point State Park, near the Bay Bridge, is almost entirely surrounded by water, making it a prime location for water sports. Hiking and bird watching are also available at Sandy Point.

Nearby in Ellicott City, city dwellers escape the rush of the larger surrounding communities. Ellicott City is a quaint small town with shops, restaurants and historic sites to keep visitors entertained through their stay. The B&O Railroad Station is the oldest in America, and the museum of the same name features a living history program of the railway.

Annapolis is located just 28 miles east of Washington, D.C., and sits along the Chesapeake Bay in eastern central Maryland.
