Things to Do in Downtown Annapolis

Explore the City’s Historic Heart

You’ll find plenty of fun things to do in downtown Annapolis, with eclectic boutiques, spectacular restaurants, and beautiful 18th-century architecture — proportionally more than any other American city — lining the cobblestone streets around the hotel. The historic district is surrounded by water on three sides, with College Creek to the north, the Chesapeake Bay to the east, and Spa Creek to the south, meaning the opportunities to enjoy the water are endless. Treat yourself to gourmet waterfront dining, set out on a harbor cruise, take sailing lessons, or rent a paddleboard.

This compact and easily walkable is also home to some notable landmarks, as well as historic streets with names like Duke of Gloucester Street and Prince George Street. you’ll find two of the country's most historical academic campuses — St. John's College (1784) and the United States Naval Academy (1845). These are just two of the more than 30 historical sites, including the Maryland State House, which can be discovered as you explore the area.
