“Park and ride, then enjoy a taste of the sea.”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Sometimes it pays to do your homework. The Annapolis website advises motorists to leave their car at one of the park and ride spots (roughly $10 for the whole day) and take the free trolley into and around the town. We did just this and had a very enjoyable visit. Admittedly it was a cool early May day, with not many tourists (though lots of school parties - well-behaved, on the whole), but there's lots to see and do. A harbour cruise is to be recommended, giving an overview of the U.S. Naval Academy. There is a bar on board for the 45 minute trip into the Bay, if you need sustenance. We ate a hearty, modestly-priced lunch at Middleton's in the Market Place, then had fun shopping in some high-end boutiques before climbing the hill to the State House. This was being refurbished and consequently a little disappointing but the area is full of charm. We took the trolley bus back to our covered car park, beneath the elegant Westin Hotel, before heading back to Virginia.

“Annapolis City Dock”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

One of our favorite things to do in Annapolis, Maryland, is to stroll around City Dock. There are many wonderful shops and restaurants. The seafood is excellent. With the U. S. Naval Academy nearby and dozens of sailboats and yachts moored in the harbor, the "yearning for the sea" comes out in everyone. The "stroll" can be free (except for parking) with only people-watching and boat-watching. Or you can dine on wonderful seafood or take a boat cruise on the scenic Severn River.

“Quaint town of Annapolis great place to visit.”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

Wear comfortable walking shoes to admire the town of Annapolis, Md. The shops are quit different and the shop owners are very friendly. We ate at Buddy's Seafood Restaurant. You can get crabs by the dozen or all you can eat crab meal. We decided on the great Buffet and we also ordered crabs. (Delicious) The museum was very interesting and the employees there were very helpful. We ended our day by walking past the boat Marina. The boats were amazing. Can't wait to go back. Maybe next time we will stay overnight.
