We headed from Wilmington towards Washington, DC with no real end plan for the day. Our plans were not to arrive in the nation's capital until the day after but we had no particular plans on where we would end up this afternoon. We decided on Annapolis, Maryland and arrived late afternoon, just in time to quickly locate the information visitor centre and see what we could do the next morning before heading to Washington.
Eventually we decided to again pay to take a driving tour of the town on a small bus as we wanted to get a good overview of the city and how it was laid out, as well as some information about the history of the city and what we were looking at! Annapolis is a quaint historical town with a cute look about it. The town sits on the water and has a few small 'neighbourhoods' within the city limits. It sits on Chesapeake Bay and is only 47 kilometres from Washington DC.
