Things to do in ANNAPOLIS with kids

Did you know that Annapolis was established in 1649? Amazing! And since then it has been an amazing place for families to visit. It’s a great city to walk, which means you can really spend the day getting lost in the streets, including the historic colonial section.

The perfect city to visit all year round, and in summer it becomes magical!  If you’re new to the city, a great way to explore is by tour! Discover Annapolis Tour will take you on a fun trolley where you can cover 350 years history in an hour!

Pirates? Well, it is on a harbor! Pirate Adventures on the Chesapeake will fulfil any child’s swashbuckling dream of sailing the seven seas. Arrrrr, there be face-painting and water cannons!

Those creative and inquisitive minds will love the Chesapeake Children’s Museum where they can create with a very hands-on environment, and the Annapolis Maritime Museum lets kids delve into the very rich maritime history of the area!

Did you know that George Washington once slept in the historic center? If it’s good enough for a president, it MUST be a great place to visit!
