A sailing Mecca if ever there was one, Annapolis lies at 38 degrees 58 minutes north latitude and 76 degrees 29 minutes west longitude. Maryland’s capital city is the perfect starting point for your Chesapeake Bay exploration.
Before embarking, however, seeing the sights of Annapolis is a must. You can stroll down to “Ego Alley” at Annapolis Harbor, and then grab a sandwich at Chick and Ruth’s Delly on Main Street. A couple of streets over, you can visit the Maryland State House, historically distinctive because it’s the oldest state capitol in continuous legislative use, topped by the largest wooden dome in the nation. Annapolis is also home to the U.S. Naval Academy.

Before embarking, seeing the sights of Annapolis is a must. Stroll down to “Ego Alley” at Annapolis Harbor, and then grab a sandwich at Chick & Ruth’s Delly on Main Street.

The Chesapeake Bay takes its name from a Powhatan word, “Chesepioc,” or “Great Shellfish Bay.” The French founded Annapolis as a settlement called Port Royal in 1605, and Captain John Smith became the first European to explore and thoroughly map the Chesapeake Bay in 1609, writing in his journal that “heaven and earth have never agreed better to frame a place for man’s habitation.” With so many delightful creeks, coves, rivers, towns and villages to visit, Annapolis makes for a dream sailing vacation.
