Best Times to Visit Annapolis

The best time to visit Annapolis is in the spring when the city is redolent with blossoms and the sailing season is just beginning. But each part of the year has its charms. In summertime, you'll find the harbor teeming with boats. In the fall, the changing trees against the historic homes are postcard-worthy. And in the winter, even when a chilling cold settles in the city, Annapolis still appeals with its glowing storefronts and cozy restaurants.
