Naval Academy Tours & More
[QUOTE=midlifesailor;700772] I think you can get a tour of the Naval Academy, which besides the city itself is about the only thing I know of you might want to visit. I'm a VA guy though so I'm sure some of the Marylanders will have more good suggestions.
Ok...here's a Marylander chiming in...
The Naval Academy tour is great and you can also get a taste of Annapolis History with a tour (I think they're 2 hours). The Visitor Center will have details when you arrive.
There are boats everywhere and a tour around the harbor is a good plan. There are water taxis to take you up, down, around for just a few bucks and several tour boats (sail and power) that take you out into the Severn River and into the Bay. If nothing else, climb aboard a Water Taxi and head around to Back Creek (there are LOTS of sailboats in marinas...breathtaking).
As to food, accommodations, libations...plenty of places to go (to get away from the masses, head up town a bit or over to Eastport). But you should really do the pit beef at the Fleet Club one day...pretty darn good stuff! More than one day recommended to soak up all the stuff...a day at the boat show (I like Friday's) and a day around town with side trip to DC or B'more makes for a great weekend and, for the sailboat show, you'll have Monday holiday to recover : )
