The Spring Equinox has arrived and so has our season of daily cruises and tours in Annapolis! Daffodils, Maryland Day...and Harbor Queen. These are the signs of Spring in Annapolis.
Last week's cold snap left us eager for boating season. How about you? Luckily starting on Friday, March 24, Harbor Queen is cruising daily! The official start day of our cruising season is Saturday but we're so excited for her return to City Dock, we're bringing her home one day earlier than scheduled. This week, she'll also take her first students of the year out on their Spring Field Trip in Annapolis. Harbor Queen cruises alongside the banks of the United States Naval Academy and out into the Chesapeake Bay to catch a glimpse of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. She's the heart of our fleet! Catch a seat on Harbor Queen every day of the week.
Daily Walking Tours
Colonials have returned to historic Annapolis! Seriously. Our Annapolis walking tours are now offered every day, twice a day. Our tour guides have finished their annual training and are ready to share their knowledge of Maryland history with our guests. Do you know the significance of the Old Senate Chamber in the Maryland State House? How about the majors available for study at the United States Naval Academy? And in which house is it believed Francis Scott Key was married? Ask a Watermark tour guide today on a Four Centuries Walking Tour.
Maryland Day Celebration - Free Walking Tour
Your weekend, Made in Maryland! Four Rivers Heritage Area celebrates Maryland Day with a weekend of heritage, history and fun...for free. From March 24-26, heritage sites throughout the region offer family friendly events for free or nearly free at just $1. More than 20 shops also offer discounts. We invite everyone to join Squire Richard Hillman on a complimentary "Gone but Not Forgotten" walking tour on Sunday afternoon. This tour is rarely offered and highlights pieces of Annapolis history that are hiding underneath the asphalt, built over or -- in some cases -- moved. Happy Birthday Maryland! Learn more about Maryland Day on their website.
Our season has started and so much more is on the way. Mark your calendars for these fun dates:
