Hi all, I was in Annapolis for a horse show this weekend but didn't get to look around the town itself, really would like to come back with the family (two kids 8 yrs) and husband. Never really been there, what should we plan to do while there? Please list your favorite sites/activities etc. Thanks!

Touring the USN Academy is a must! Eat at any of several locations down by the water and enjoy the atmosphere.

Make sure to walk around State circle and Church circle. Annapolis is a beautiful little city. It is in my top three for the entire state.

I have always enjoyed taking one of the small boat trips out into the water around the town. The homes are beautiful. I think you can catch them around the city dock.

A hint: You can park at one of the 3 parking garages downtown, or else park Free at the Navy Memorial Stadium, and walk a short distance a cross the Bridge into downtown.

Take a guided tour of the Naval academy. Browse in the many gift / art shops, many of them with nautical-themed artwork. Walk around beautiful "State Circle" and "Church Circle" (with the governors mansion between them), and go in the State House (historic capitol). Hang out and watch the many yachts around the City Dock, and take a guided harbor cruise if you care to (you can board the boats further out a ways on the City Dock). Visit the shops on Maryland Avenue. Annapolis, Maryland (MD) Hotels, Annapolis Restaurants & Bars, Annapolis Shopping, Annapolis Events

Can't see how you could come to Annapolis without touring the Naval Academy.

When I was in Annapolis over the summer, we parked at the Stadium but it cost $5.00 for the day. Not sure if the price fluctuates with the season. Still, it was cheaper than the downtown garages if you stay more than a couple of hours.

Stadium parking price also includes the shuttle to get downtown. It runs on a loop.

There are also guided tours of downtown Annapolis with it's many colonial homes. You can also tour the State House. There really are lots of things to do there.

My wife and I were born in Annapolis and we did all of the tours when we lived there for almost 50 years. What amazed us was the people that live in the surrounding areas never did these tours. They'd sit around and complain there wasn't anything to do. I'd suggest becoming a tourist in their own town.
