We left my sister’s house to go to Annapolis one Friday morning to have my marriage certificate attested by the Secretary of State. Being the capital city of Maryland, the Secretary of State office is located in this very pretty city. As many of you may remember, I wasn’t very psyched to see the US as a tourist destination – that was until I started exploring the small charming cities which are not as popular as the other bigger cities. I do think Annapolis is just one of them which deserves the attention the other cities are getting – it’s charming, it’s historical, it’s cute and it’s really very pretty.
Annapolis is located 32 miles from Washington DC. It is easily accessible by car and can be a day tour destination from DC. I would love to spend a night there though and stay in one of the charming bed and breakfast that I saw. If driving is not an option for you, you can easily take a bus or a train to go there from DC.
We of course focused in the historic district of Annapolis – it was lined up with restaurants, small boutique shops and cafes. The sun was at its peak when we were there so it was a great day for us to walk around and explore this city.
I think for me, being a small city junkie, I can easily stay here for 3 days and enjoy its quaintness until I can no longer handle it. :p
