Though Annapolis sometimes is referred to as the “sailing capital of the world,” the city is more widely known as Maryland’s state capital and the home of the United States Naval Academy. The area has an extensive colonial history you can learn about by visiting the Chase-Lloyd House, the Charles Carroll House of Annapolis, or the Maryland State House. As the oldest state house in continuous legislative use in the nation, the Maryland State House also happens to have the nation’s largest wooden dome built without nails. Annapolis was the temporary capital of the United States in 1783 and the site of the Annapolis Convention. The city is also home to St. John’s College, a liberal arts institution that is famous for its curriculum, the Great Books Program, which emphasizes philosophy and literature.
Because of the city’s proximity to the Chesapeake Bay, the area experiences moderate temperatures throughout the year. This makes it the perfect place to spend time on the water, and the city takes advantage of this, offering boat charters, rentals, and cruises. Visit the Annapolis Maritime Museum to learn about the city’s 400 years of maritime history, see how oysters are harvested, and hear the voices of those who worked for McNasby Oyster Company. If you work in the medical field, Annapolis is an ideal place to work; the Anne Arundel Medical Center employs almost 3,000 of the city’s workers and ranks first in the country for in-patient care and patient satisfaction by Jackson Organization. Whether you’re hoping for some time on the water or to live in a city that preserves its important past, Annapolis is the place to rent your next apartment.
