It was many years ago, I didn't know any better. SailNet wasn't even a thought then, neither was the internet Early 1990s IIRC

You don't have to go up to the inner Harbor to see the fireworks, which is what I think you did. You can see them on the north fork of the Patapsco, anchored and stay overnight. If you go up the south fork, stay in a marina.

Re: Bumper Boats in Annapolis

I wish I were retired, but we were happy to be in Annapolis for more reasons than fireworks.
As for Baltimore - did that ONCE and it was every bad thing that happens in Annapolis X10
Only way I would EVER do that again is if I had a slip and was not moving around after dark.

If there is a moring field that has a good view that it the easy way. You might have to reserve a year in advance. Just make sure you are there very early on the 4th (third is better, but not always possible) and stay the night.

1. Depending on how the 4th lines up with the weekend, show up the morning of the 3rd or 2nd.
2. Get a mooring.
3. Get food and drink.
4. Enjoy your food and drink while watching the fireworks on the 4th.
5. Don't go anywhere until the 5th.

Not to mention that there are other, less crowded fireworks shows to visit by water.
