Piggybacking on bohsnos’ earlier post of things to do in Fall around Baltimore, a recent story has shed light on another fantastic place for a day trip in our great state. For the second consecutive year Annapolis has been named one of America’s Prettiest Towns. Having been there this past weekend I’d have to agree with the editors of Forbes Traveler magazine, the publication that engineered the survey.
Walking through Annapolis this past Saturday evening I was reminded of how special our capital city is. Men in Navy uniforms, sailboats crowding the harbor, cobblestone streets, the classic yet time transcendent state house – all of these things and more create a fantastic city less than an hour south of Baltimore.
Although not a large metropolis, Annapolis has a set of attractions that can draw all visitors, whether their interests lie in outdoor activities, history, food, etc. I often make the same mistake with Washington DC and take for granted how close in proximity we are to a great place to visit, but hopefully we can all make it back to Annapolis in the near future, it’ll definitely be worth the trip.
