Summer in Annapolis

Table of Contents

Summer is a splendid season, especially if you are visiting Annapolis, Maryland. With over 400 miles along its shoreline including four rivers and the Chesapeake Bay, Annapolis offers a paradise to anyone who loves the water and is the perfect place to take a boat tour, book a fishing charter or simply cruise on a boat, kayak or canoe down its lovely waterways.

The Annapolis countryside is beautiful too if you want to plan a drive through its pastoral views. Don’t forget to stop at Historic London Town and Gardens – a 23-acre museum and park. The Heritage Region Wine Tour, on which you can enjoy live music and a delicious lunch, is delightful too.

The events during the summer in Annapolis are one-of-a-kind as well. For instance, Annapolis Art Week, celebrating and showcasing the diverse local art community of Annapolis, has been held every June since 2017. 

In July, Annapolis is host to an Independence Day parade, fireworks at Farragut Field and a Naval Academy Band performance on the City Dock. 

Then, in August, it is time for one of Annapolis’s most popular, long standing traditions – The World’s Largest Crab Feast, held at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium and offering more crabs than the eye can see, as well as sweet corn on the cob, watermelon, barbeque, beer and more. 

September is time for the two-day Maryland Seafood Festival, with family friendly fun and plenty of seafood. 

And if you don’t want it all to end, join the thousands of boaters that descend on Annapolis in early October for the U. S. Powerboat Show – the world’s largest in-water boat show.
