While it’s a working state capital, Annapolis retains much of its colonial heritage. It’s where George Washington resigned as commander in chief and where Congress ratified the treaty to end the Revolutionary War. More than 1,500 historic colonial buildings are scattered along the narrow brick streets and alleys. To take a charter bus trip to this historic spot would be ever memorable and we made such one.
It was our first charter bus trip to Annapolis; a place where history lives in a museum without walls. Lose yourself in our quaint seaport village steeped in hundreds of years of maritime heritage. The vibe is laid-back, the scenery is awe-inspiring and the local fare is seasoned with the flavors of the Chesapeake Bay. You’ll want to come back again and again.
The narrow streets feature historic homes and restored buildings such as the Hammond-Harwood House, a structure that showcases architecture from the 18th and 19th centuries. The waterfront harbor in Annapolis allows for ship watching and the lively cafes and shops of Market House are an inviting place to relax. The grey stone U.S. Naval Academy is located in Annapolis and has more than 4000 midshipmen training to become Naval Officers.
Its streets bustle most weekends with packed restaurants, bars, and shops. Workboats still seek the shellfish for which the Chesapeake Bay is known. In spring, the pleasure boats arrive like clockwork. Warm weather brings the festivities to the water’s edge, and downtown takes on the air of a casual long-running party.
We wouldn’t have been able to have such a relaxing trip and visit so many areas if not for our decision to use to busneeds.com to plan our Annapolis charter bus rental. I highly recommend visiting Annapolis for a memorable, scenic trip you aren’t likely to forget for a long time.
