Want to add my $0.02 to the Bucket List. I am new to sailnet and would like to mention a couple of nice anchorages just outside of Annapolis.
I have been sailing the nothern Bay on bareboat charters for the past ten years and have been introduced to some fabulous anchorages in this area. Two that are only minutes from Annapolis are Whitehall and Mill Crks.
Coming south on the 'Bay' just under the twin briges on the starboard (rgt.) are two perfect anchorage creeks, Whitehall Crk. andMill Crk. Both are well marked and plenty of water. If you choose Mill Crk. you willl find Cantlers Resturaunt part the way up the creek. Check their website for exact location and docking facility. The crabcakes are perfection.
I have recently partnered in a 27' tiller steered sloop on Middle rvr. MD. My partner and I were going to overnight to Swan Crk. (nr. Rock Hall) but he has to work so I am going solo...my first solo on the boat. I'm sure I can handle it even W/O self tailing or auto tiller. I am going to buy auto inflating life vast tomorrow.......we'll see.

I've anchored there and jogged the trail in the early morning hours and have seen a half of dozen deer on some mornings.
Also a stop at St Mary's college to visit the historic site there. Kinda like a mini Williamsburg.

|eryka||Maybe its obvious but for a bucket list I'd add getting a photo of your boat under sail with the iconic Thomas Point Light, or Bay Bridge, in the background.|

If you're putting Annapolis on your list, be sure to include a visit to the Naval Academy museum at Preble Hall (a must for military history and phenomenal ship models). In addition to what others have indicated, I'd include Langford (sp?) Creek on the Eastern shore, and explore all the way up by dinghy. I'm also really fond of Deltaville, VA, just a nice small town. Love St Michaels (anchor on the back side, Sn Domingo Creek, and walk the 3 blocks into town to avoid the chaos in the main harbor) and I hope to spend more time in Solomons. Plaindealing Creek near Oxford.
We really enjoyed the Dismal Swamp Canal ... but we draw <5 feet. We didn't bump bottom, but did knock some small tree branches into the cockpit.

1,Navy cadets so polite and gentlemanly greeting young (and old) ladies sitting around on a Sunday afternoon at ego alley or strolling around Annapolis.
