Annapolis is one of the most historic city's in the United States. It is the capital of the state and was established in 1696. Located on the Chesapeake Bay it is full of Colonial charm and views of the water. From its beginnings, Annapolis has been a center of cultural activities. From the local pubs to the yachts anchored in the harbor it is a fascinating place to visit.
The designer of this beautiful city was Sir Francis Drake. By drawing circles with radiating streets he created focal points of historic structures. One circle holds St. Anne's, an original Church of England. You will also see the State House, which was often visited by George Washington.
The city began as a thriving port and brought wealth to the city. Mansions that reminded the shippers and planters of their homeland were found in abundance. Many of them had ballrooms and fancy English gardens.
Many of the structures found along the waterfront and in the city are the originals built in the late 18th century. Many are open to tourists and are a major attraction in the city. The Historic Annapolis Foundations takes care of many of the historic buildings in the city and on the waterfront.
Cultural arts were well loved in the colonial Annapolis and there are still quite a few theaters and performing arts companies still operating today. Concerts and plays are year round attractions and found throughout the city in different venues.
When landed gentry came to settle in the area around Annapolis they brought with them their love of horses and racing. Today, horses racing and betting is still a big part of the city and area around Annapolis.
This beautiful city was the country's capital when the Revolutionary War ended. All four signers of the Declaration of Independence from Maryland have homes that are still standing in Annapolis.
Although the shipping trade has moved do the deeper harbor of Baltimore, boating is still an active industry in the city. Boat racing, fishing, recreational boating and sailing are popular year round. You will find many boat supply businesses and service establishments on the waterfront.
The weather is temperate and the city and waterfront are perfect for leisure walks. You will see beautiful row houses renovated and revitalized. At one time they were derelict but now are fairly expensive pieces of property. All of them gleam with pride and some have deep-water docks for the owner's boats. You will love the atmosphere in Annapolis whether you are visiting or planning a move.
