    My family and I visited the Banneker-Douglass Museum in Annapolis, Maryland. It was a wonderful and educational historical day tour for my children. My son's middle name is Douglass after the historical and rich history of the Bailey family in Maryland, Georgia and Ohio and lineage of Frederick Douglass ancestors whom I had the pleasure of meeting in Atlanta, Georgia several years ago. Thank you very much. You were extraordinarily kind to us. --Gloria Jean Harden-Bailey.

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.
