Annapolis

Trip Planner USA  /  Maryland  /  Annapolis
Capital of the United States for one year from 1783 to 1784, Annapolis has played a vital role in U.S. history. A view of the city from the harbor reveals red-brick structures topped with white domes. These homes-turned-museums tell the story of the notable Americans (including three signers of the Declaration of Independence) who helped to build the metropolis. Downtown has 25 art galleries within walking distance. For travelers interested in culture, the city also offers performance art, including opera, orchestra, and ballet. Along the main street, buildings decorated with flower boxes reminiscent of the 19th and 20th century draw visitors to its coffee shops and boutiques. Situated on the water, this city of nearly 40,000 is perhaps best known for being the home of the country's naval academy, which offers guided tours. Use our custom trip planner: Annapolis and all its delights await.

Where to stay in Annapolis

Annapolis's historical downtown area draws the city's tourists, so there's plenty of choice of accommodations here. Small inns and charming bed and breakfasts represent most of the options in this part of town, with a couple even offering views of Annapolis Harbor. If everything here is booked, try the collection of national-chain hotels to the west of downtown, although access to the city's attractions isn't as convenient. Try to reserve in advance if you plan to visit during a summer weekend.
