About AnnapolisThere’s no better place to stay in Annapolis than the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel. Nestled right by the water, stepping out on your balcony gives you a bird’s eye view of Chesapeake Bay, and provides nothing but relaxation as you sip your drink and watch the ships sail across the water.
If you’re in need of a high-quality sugar rush, look no further than the Annapolis Ice Cream Shop. With over 36 homemade flavors, this is some of the best ice cream around, and is the perfect complement to the end of a long day.
One of the top courses to check out while you’re here is the Lakes Course at Queenstown Harbor. This par-71 course plays 6,569 yards and weaves you across rivers and streams as you watch the sun peak through the tree line. The course has daily golf specials, and kids 16 and under play for free with a paying adult for the regular rate. The Lake Presidential Golf Club features an 11,000 square-foot clubhouse and banquet center for over 200 guests. Houses occupy the front nine holes, but are non-existent on the back. There’s room for mistakes on the course, but the course tests your abilities with a vast number of hazards spread across the par-3’s.
