There are some many trails that you can walk your dog, go for a nice stroll, or bike. They even have a dog park where you can let your dog off the leash and let them run around with other dogs.

My manfriend and I took a long walk from downtown Annapolis. This is a nice park with well-maintained trails as well as some off-the-beaten-path trails and geocaches. There are some great features, like a butterfly garden, a fountain pool, and lots of gazebos! My favorite...More
