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.
