Visit Annapolis and greet the holiday season by taking a spectacular nighttime drive along the scenic Chesapeake Bay to see the 24th Annual Lights on the Bay. This annual kaleidoscope of lights will color your eyes with 70 animated and stationary displays as you travel through Sandy Point State Park. This dazzling festival of lights will be a memory you and your loved ones will never forget. The SPCA of Anne Arundel County will be sponsoring the displays, and proceeds from Lights on the Bay will benefit its charitable foundation.
Annapolis Holiday Season
Annapolis is a terrific place to visit during the holiday season. Aside from being the scenic seaside capital of Maryland, the city is filled with historic places from America’s colonial times. Imagine taking a pleasant stroll with your loved one during a beautiful autumn or winter day as you shop for works of art and handicrafts created by regional artists.
Don’t miss the United States Naval Academy, where many of our country’s heroes spent their formative years. Afterwards, take a walk in the historic district, which is filled with 18th Century colonial homes that are national landmarks.
The Annapolis Christmas light boat parade is another fantastic evening event, and local musicians will play holiday tunes that will warm your heart.
