What visitors usually refer to as "Historic Annapolis" is the abundance of restaurants, galleries and shops that fill the converted row houses on Main Street. You'll find everything from the popular Chick & Ruth's Delly to boutiques like Lilac Bijoux and shops like Annapolis Cigar. On a nice day, this row of shops is a delightful place to meander for a few hours. However, you should also know that the historic area also officially extends to most of the downtown and the harbor, which contain jewels like the Hammond-Harwood House and the Banneker-Douglass Museum.
Recent visitors say it's a nice way to spend a cool fall afternoon, and recommend setting aside about two and a half hours to take a guided walking tour of the area.
You can find the Main Street of Historic Annapolis in the heart of the city between Church Circle and the Main Street Circle. For more information, check out the area's website.
