We visited Annapolis for the first time. It was an enjoyable visit with many places to visit. The water front was picturesque. Many shops and places to eat. Also toured the Naval Academy. We would visit the town again.

Meandering along these historic streets is a special experience. The Naval Academy and State House are the "big" attractions, but the quaint homes, shops and restaurants are treasures as well. And of course the docks and multitude of magnificent boats, large and larger, are the...More

I believe most stores are open a little bit later than normal. We were downtown in the evening and some appeared to still be open. Also, a number of the stores were open on Sunday.
