We spent several hours walking around Annapolis. From the naval academy to the capital. Lots of quaint little shops and restaurants. Very nice place to spend the day. Would have liked to had more time to tour the capital. Will come back.

Main street has a lot of interesting shops, restaurants, etc. At the end of the street is the State House which is free and has lots of history. Bring your camera.

Lots of restaurants, shops, and bars will keep you busy in this historic waterfront town. Check out scenic boat tours, the Naval Academy, and the beautiful historic architecture. Easy to park your car at walk the entire weekend!

This is a very nice walkable downtown. We would recommend that you take the "free walking tour" that is the name. You go to the most interesting places with a local.

I haven't been to Annapolis in over a year, but the town never disappoints. It was fun and full of people. I would definitly take in the shops on the side streets as they were a good find.

There are curb cuts in many places and ramps on some buildings. I'm sure all the government buildings are ADA compliant. Easy enough to get around outside and restaurants are hit and miss regarding accessibility. Call if you... More
