  • This place is pretty cool even though I'm not into the whole political scene. My daughter sings here every year and the kids sound very good because the Acoustics in this place are unbelievable. They definitely should do more about the parking when they have events like this because you can risk getting a ticket if you park on the outsides of the building
  • Had on of the most fantastic time representing Montgomery College and seeing how local polities work in my state of Maryland. Thank You to everyone that is elected and supports Montgomery College. I also have to shout out to everyone that is trying to make out state a better place and to District 20.
  • The setting just above downtown Annapolis is very cool and makes it easy to visit. The grounds and the building are beautiful and are enough different from other Statehouses to be interesting and fit Annapolis very nicely. The Chambers are both beautiful. I do wish a bit more of the building had been open to the public.
  • Wow. Original letter from Washington and amazing original oils on display. You will recognize it!! Take a picture with GW's statue. Will only take a few minutes and so worth it! Friendly and helpful security guards, too.
  • Well kept grounds. Inside is beautiful. I love all of the historic artifacts. What a great way to show Maryland Pride!

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.
