Along cobbled stone walks and down to the dock, one will find history and great architecture around every corner in downtown Annapolis. The State House is lovely with its impressive dome that may be seen throughout the area. The other buildings and homes in the downtown area are well maintained and beautiful.

We had a lovely evening here, walking around, checking out shops and cafes, seeing the sights. We enjoyed the holidays lights up everywhere also. A lot of great history here as well.

Felt very safe walking around but pay attention to the uneven sidewalk you wouldn't want to ruin the visit with a sprained ankle. Beauty on every turn. Very humid later in the day on this Sunday visit.

From a circular street around the Maryland State House, major streets radiate to form the historic district. It is said that Annapolis has more original 18th-century structures standing than any other city in the United States. If my walk around the many brick sidewalks in the area is proof. It seems that almost every house and building has a distinctive National Historic District plaque on it. The buildings were well-maintained and often brightly painted and ranged from homes, hotels, and churches. A number of nineteenth-century buildings are also included. The area is quite walkable, and one can head downhill later to find many interesting shops and restaurants at the dockside, including the oldest operating pub, the Middleton Tavern (1750), in the state. A signboard at the docks provides a map and listing of many of the historic sights. Parking requires using an online app and is not very straightforward but manageable. It is recommended that one start walking early to avoid the heat of the day.

Tourists love visiting Annapolis but the locals should do the same. We visited the State House, the City Dock area, had a cruise on the Harbor Queen and enjoyed ice cream at Annapolis Ice Cream Co. There's more to do and see. I'm looking forward to the Phantom Tour in the future and staying in one the historic inns.

Absolutely love this city. The historic district feels like a friendly small town. Everyone is friendly. The restaurants are all amazing. Chick and Ruth's is a must do to see the Pledge of Allegiance every morning.

The town is very walkable, everyone at the visitor centers were friendly and helpful. There is a free shuttle bus that runs about every 20 minutes. We parked in a garage that allowed all day parking for $15.

If you happen to be in Annapolis, you have to spend some time in the historic district. There are plenty of places to park in the garages so that you dont have to worry about that. Everything is within walking distance of the parking garages.
