This quaint harbor town is often called "America's Sailing Capital," but you won't need a brochure to tell you that. Don't worry though. You don't need your own boat to join in the fun. The city offers plenty of diversions, from sailing to shopping. That's what makes it such a great place for an end-of-summer getaway.
A trio of storied houses, Historic Inns of Annapolis, gets our stamp of approval for a weekend. Completely redecorated in 2006, these three inns pair the elegance of yesteryear with today's modern amenities.
