The Annapolis Lifestyle

Just messing about on the River.

Annapolis is surrounded by water on three sides: the Severn & South Rivers and the Chesapeake Bay main stem.

Consequently, you can’t go far without noticing it, and the many creeks and side rivers twist and turn into the peninsula, making for lots of waterfront, waterview and water-oriented property.

(A side effect is that there are few ‘alternate routes’ through town - the creeks get in the way!)

Main Street

Annapolis is almost 400 years old, and it shows in the style of the property in the Historic District (i.e. the downtown area.)

The Maryland Inn, at the top of Main Street in this photo, dates from 1776 (and is still a Bed & Breakfast.)  At the bottom of Main St is City Dock, Spa Creek and the Severn River.

More information is available on the web site of the Capital Newspaper and the Annapolis Visitors Bureau.

Main Street

Historic Houses

The downtown area is populated with many small and historic houses, lovingly maintained by their owners.  This is East Street, which leads up to the State Capital with its dome; the oldest State Capital still in use, it was built in 1779.

Annapolis’ City web site has a page listing the Historic houses (click here).
