Spring is back, and so is the Historic Annapolis Trolley Tour . Provided by Towne Transport, this trolley tour is a fascinating exploration of many points of interest in Annapolis, which has been Maryland’s capital since colonial times.
Riding the Towne Transport’s red trolley will give riders a great view of Annapolis’ most notable spots. Guests will travel on streets marked out more than three hundred years ago. They will be accompanied by amiable guides who are very knowledgeable about the historic sites of this beautiful maritime city. Below are the highlights.
- United States Naval Academy
- The City Dock
- St. John’s College
- National Historic Landmarks
- Maryland World War II Memorial
- The Maryland State House
You’ll discover much about the United States Naval Academy’s athletic and academic programs while viewing the scenic campus from the Severn River Outlook. Next is downtown Annapolis, where City Dock is the center of Annapolis’ social scene. The tour nears Ego Alley, where a fleet of expensive yachts line the harbor. The guides also cover several National Historic Landmarks. Nearly 1,300 buildings in Annapolis are more than 100 years old and were designed using 15 architectural styles.
If you are in Annapolis during Memorial Day Weekend, you will have a chance to honor the Marylanders who gave their lives for their country during World War II. The trolley stops at the Maryland World War II Memorial, allowing guests to walk the grounds and view the monuments.
The trolley will also stop by St. John’s College, a private liberal arts college on a beautiful campus. Later a replica of the Liberty Bell can be seen, and soon after the Maryland State House, (the oldest state capitol still in continuous legislative use) where George Washington came before Congress to resign as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army.
