Learn About This Location
Annapolis is as charming as any state capital can be. With its Colonial architecture, cobblestone roads, flickering lamps and brick row houses, it's worthy of a more Dickensian time. But it's not fake: the city has kept, rather than fabricated, its heritage.
Seated on the Chesapeake Bay, Annapolis revolves around the city's maritime history. It's the hom of the US Naval Academy, whose students can be seen around town in their starched white uniforms. Sailing is more than just a hobby, but a way of life.
