Annapolis Maryland Information

Thomas Point Lighthouse Annapolis Maryland is the state capital and is also known as the "sailboat capital of the world". Annapolis is the home of the United States Naval Academy, and Saint John's College and is located at the mouth of the Severn River on the Chesapeake Bay.

Downtown in the Historic area, originally established in 1695, City Dock is a favorite place to visit. Known to local boaters as "Ego Alley" it is the weekend and evening scene of a steady parade of expensive yachts. There is plenty to eat and drink in the area which is the site of the world's largest sailboat and power boat shows every October.

The nearby United States Naval Academy has the world's largest dormitory housing over 4000 midshipmen. Favorite sights here are the crypt of John Paul Jones in the Academy Chapel and the Severn seawall with its mast from the battleship Maine (sunk in Havana in 1898). There is also an early submarine, a Mark XIV torpedo (memorial for 52 U.S. submarines lost in WWII with 3505 men), and other Navy hardware. USNA has a new visitor center.

The Maryland Statehouse, built in 1772, is the oldest in the U.S. still in legislative use, and was capitol of the U.S briefly in 1783. You can visit the current house and senate chambers and also the original senate chamber where George Washington resigned as Commander in Chief of the Army in 1783.

The Maryland Renaissance Festival in nearby Crownsville is a major event on weekends from late August to late October. See jousting, stage acts, crafts, food, period costumes, etc. in 16th century England. Practice your English accent; forsooth thou wilst need it!
