Annapolis boasts itself as a museum without walls and “America’s Sailing Capital.” As Maryland’s capital, it brims with an upbeat, modern vibe that blends well with centuries-old architectural works. It is renowned for its rich, nautical heritage, with its connection to Chesapeake Bay. Famously, it is home to US Naval Academy (USNA), which has been providing education and training to US Navy officers since 1845. USNA has a museum commemorating the achievements and traditions of the US Navy and Marines. A trip to this historic city is not complete without touring Maryland State House, which once served as the capital of the fledgling United States. To have a genuine, local experience here, try sailing and rent a yacht. Check out some of the best yacht charters in Annapolis, Maryland.
This 13.11-m (43-ft) yacht is docked in Eastport, only a short walk away from the historic Downtown Annapolis and USNA.
